The Sheffield fighter has been guaranteed a summer shot at the IBF belt currently held by American Shawn Porter - provided he dispatches Mexican Alvaro Robles at the Echo Arena.

Robles is no slouch having stopped all but two of his 17 victims inside the distance - but has also been frequently floored himself.

Brook said: "This is a very important fight and it is a banana-skin fight. It is important because if I don't win this there is no big one to follow.

"Robles is going to be game and he will want to take my head off. I am looking forward to the opportunity to get in there and show people what I can do."
