Kell Brook: final IBF eliminator with Hector Saldivia

Kell Brook has vowed to earn a world title shot in style when he faces Hector Saldivia in an IBF final eliminator on October 20.

The unbeaten Sheffield fighter will battle the Argentinian on home turf at the Motorpoint Arena with the winner guaranteed a crack at the IBF belt.

If Brook prevails, he will take on the winner of the all-American title clash between IBF holder Randall Bailey and Devon Alexander, and he is determined to put on a show after struggling to a points win over Carson Jones last month.

"I proved I have massive heart against Carson," Brook said. "I said after the fight that there needs to be an improvement and on October 20 my fans are going to see me at my very best."

Eddie Hearn, who promotes Brook, added: "We have a new team in place that is going to ensure Kell will hit new heights in this fight.

"It was always our goal to secure a mandatory position and now we are just one fight away from making that happen."
