Brook keen for more action


Kell Brook hopes to make the first of two defences of his IBF welterweight title before the end of this summer on May 30.

The Sheffield fighter retained his world crown with a four-round demolition job of Jo Jo Dan over the weekend, his first bout since being stabbed in the leg last September.

His promoters Matchroom have a card at London's O2 Arena in just under two months, when British pair Lee Selby and Kevin Mitchell will challenge for world titles of their own, and Brook is keen to make an outing.

"Saturday night was fantastic and I want to capitalise on that win," said Brook.

"I came out injury-free, so I want to box as soon as possible."
