Kell Brook strolled to a decisive and comfortable win against Mexican Alvaro Robles tonight.
The Sheffield fighter never looked in trouble in the welterweight world title warm-up bout, at Liverpool Arena.
The Mexican’s corner recognised their man was getting battered and threw the towel in, in round eight.
If they hadn’t - it’s likely the referee would have stepped in, after a one-sided contest.
Brook is now guaranteed a summer shot at the IBF belt currently held by American Shawn Porter - unless Paulie Malignaggi beats his fellow American in the meantime.
