‘The Special One’ lived up to his name by using his speed and power to rattle Senchenko early on and stamp his authority on the fight immediately in front of his adoring home fans at the Motorpoint Arena.
The 27 year-old more than made up for a frustrating year by dropping Senchenko in the third and fourth en route to referee Shada Murdaugh correctly ending the fight following the second knockdown – with the Ukrainian all over the place and wanting no more.
Senchenko went into the fight in fine form having dispatched of Ricky Hatton in nine rounds last November, although was no match for the younger, stronger Brook who now moves on to a potential world title challenge in early 2014.
Devon Alexander, whom Brook has attempted to fight three times only for the fight to fall apart, puts his IBF belt on the line against Shawn Porter on December 7 at the Barclays Center and the Yorkshireman is now finally in a position to face the winner.
