Brook (24-0, 16 KO) is looking to move into mandatory contender status for the WBA title with this fight, but Jackiewicz (38-9-1, 19 KO) is a tough veteran foe not to be overlooked. Brook will be the favorite, as he's younger, fresher, frankly just better, and has home field advantage, but this should be the toughest matchup of his young career. Now with Matchroom Sport, Brook, 25, is looking to take that next step, which he feels Frank Warren wasn't able to provide him. Whether it was Warren or not is up for debate, but Brook is one of the best and most promising in a currently somewhat depleted division, and he deserves a shot as much as just about anyone.

Jackiewicz, 34, had a rough start to his career, but since October 2005 has gone 23-1, with his only loss coming to current IBF welterweight titlist Jan Zaveck, with whom he split a pair of fights in 2008 and 2010.
