Britain’s boxing public has been waiting for years for a Kell Brook mega-fight.

Because of injury and other issues, the Sheffield welterweight still awaits his big moment in the spotlight.

If he beats former WBA titleholder Vyacheslav Senchenko on Saturday at the Arena, Brook will be mandatory contender for Devon Alexander’s IBF belt.

And while Brook isn’t looking past the Ukranian, he can’t help but cast the odd glance at his high-ranking rivals.

He told “Keith Thurman is a very good kid. I’ve had an eye on him and that is a mouth-watering match-up between him and I down the line. Welterweight is bursting with talent like Adrien Broner, Alexander, Amir Khan, Tim Bradley and Robert Guerrero. Then you have legends like Mayweather, Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez. I’m very happy to be in this division and at 30-0 I am desperate to be involved in a huge event. I want people to see me in a mega fight and prove that this is where I belong.”
