Magnificent Seven: Kell Brook stops Michael Jennings on a cut in five

We didn't get to learn anything new about British welterweight prospect Kell Brook today, as he stopped domestic rival Michael Jennings in the fifth round on a sudden cut.

Brook (22-0, 15 KO) didn't look at his best in this one. Bad Left Hook had it even at two rounds apiece through four, but Brook started opening up his offense early in the fifth. A glancing left hand caused the cut, and the fight was stopped just moments later when the referee took Jennings to the corner.

It's a big disappointment for those who were waiting on this fight for the last year. It was delayed multiple times, and not only was there little action, but the stoppage was simply too bad for everyone involved. Brook doesn't get the experience he was expected to because the fight had barely even started, and Jennings (36-3, 17 KO) was presenting him with some new challenges, if nothing terribly troubling.

The heavyweight rematch between British titlist Derek Chisora and Sam Sexton is coming up next, and our live coverage continues here.
