Kell Brook makes a triumphant return home.

SHEFFIELD, YORKSHIRE — Kell Brook’s return home was triumphant as the IBF titlist inflicted four knockdowns on an overmatched Jo Jo Dan to earn a fourth round corner stoppage.

From the opening exchanges, Dan’s southpaw aggression made him susceptible to hard left jabs and straight rights. When Dan tried to make it into a mauling contest, the stronger Brook positioned him into massive uppercuts. The knockdowns commenced in the second round with Dan being floored twice off a short right uppercut and a right hook. A series of power shots dropped Dan late in the fourth, and a counter left at the bell would be the final knockdown that took all the fight out of Dan, who suffered his first stoppage defeat.

Afterward, Brook and promoter Eddie Hearn held court in ring center and publicly called for a UK showdown with Amir Khan, which elicited massive cheers from the crowd.

“Come get in here with me. I know you’re delicate around the whiskers,” Brook taunted.

The win was Brook’s first title defense since winning the belt last June from Shawn Porter and receiving a blood transfusion following a machete attack in September.

************************************************

It’s getting a bit harder for Khan to ignore Kell Brook. Khan can still hold onto the fact that he’s a bigger U.S. name than Brook, but he can’t deny that facing Special K back home would be Khan’s most lucrative and feasible fight that can happen. Sorry Khan, Mayweather nor Pacquiao will be happening for you this year, and facing Adrien Broner would not give you this type of payday (nor bragging rights).

At press time, Khan’s only public comments are a congratulatory tweet about Brook’s performance. Stay tuned.
