Undefeated fighter Kell Brook has celebrated becoming the mandatory challenger for the IBF welterweight title in style - by meeting his own heroes.

Brook, a passionate Sheffield United fan, visited the Blades’ Shirecliffe training ground yesterday. He met new United manager Nigel Clough and several first-team players, including Harry Maguire and George Long.

The 27-year-old, who underlined his world title credentials by stopping Vyacheslav Senchenko in the fourth round at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena last weekend to extend his unbeaten streak to 31 bouts, told The Star: “It was great to meet the lads and I would love to get a big massive fight at Bramall Lane next summer.”
