    Wilder v Ortiz (Sunday morning)

    Before we go, let's once again remind you that Deontay Wilder meets Luis Ortiz overnight. There'll be a full fight report on BBC Sport in the morning.

    It's only right we let Deontay send a message before we sign off...

  3. Deontay's surprise

    Wilder v Ortiz (Sunday morning)

    View more on twitter

    Deontay Wilder meets Luis Ortiz in Brooklyn in a few hours in a bout which will have a big impact on where the heavyweight division goes in the months to come.

    A win for the Bronze Bomber would keep his stock high and bring that Anthony Joshua fight closer. Defeat and well, let's not even go there as suddenly the narrative would spin more wildly than a Wilder right hook.

    Anyway, when we went to speak to him this week, Deontay had a surprise in store for reporter Ade Adedoyin. Click play above. If you're using the app, you may need to click the link.

    Meanwhile, Josh Taylor gets the job done almost as quickly as Kell Brook at the Hydro in Glasgow.

    The Scot defended his WBC silver super lightweight belt by stopping Winston Campos in round three.

  5. 'He will be a two-weight world champion'

    Promoter Eddie Hearn, speaking to Sky Sports: "Kell Brook was in a terrible place at the end of last year and the people and support of Sheffield has brought him back. That was a great performance. Everything was on the line tonight, his career was a line.

    "This guy is one of the biggest talents in boxing, he always has been. Kell Brook is coming for a second world title and I believe he will be a two-weight world champion in 2018."

    Amir Khan-Brook fight? "Amir Khan-Kell Brook is the fight we have wanted for years. Kell Brook has passed the test, Amir has to pass the test on April 21.

    "It is the fight everyone wants to see."

  6. 'I am here to stay'

    Kell Brook, speaking to Sky Sports: "You thought you had got rid of me. I am the Terminator and I am back now. I am here to stay. I love the sport.

    "To see all these people come out here, my life could not be any better right now.

    "It was all about getting my timing right. I felt very comfortable. I felt relaxed, I felt strong and I felt stable. The weight was good.

    "It was like my first fight tonight after having them losses I needed to get back to winning ways. I am back at it."

    Can you be a two-weight world champion? "Absolutely. Of course I can."

  7. Post update

    That is a very professional performance by Kell Brook. He sized up his opponent, gained confidence from a few wild punches thrown by Sergey Rabchenko and then went all in for an explosive finish.

    Let's hear from the man himself...

    Jack Granard: Damn absolutely brutal, Kell looked so comfortable out there. I think Amir Khan is fantastic but can’t see him surviving that KO power. Rabchenko is not at his level and Amir won’t stay in the pocket like that though.

    Joshua Murphy: Everyone getting ahead of themselves.. Brook just beat an old sparring partner who never even threw a punch! Wait till he faces a Hurd or a Charlo.. he will get stopped

  9. BreakingBrook wins!

    That's it!

    It's over. Sergey Rabchenko isn't getting up from that and Kell Brook wins it in round two.

    Just the performance he'll have been hoping for.

  10. Round two

    Smart uppercoat by Kell Brook catches Sergey Rabchenko before a left hander sends him to the ground!

  11. Round two

    And round two is under way.

  12. Round one

    Couple of wild hooks by Sergey Rabchenko early doors. Kell Brook produces a couple of little jabs, finding his range, before a straight left hand down the middle finds the target. He gets more and more comfortable as the round goes on and it's a positive start by Brook.

    Encouraging applause from the home fans.

  13. Round one

    Aggressive start by Sergey Rabchenko. Kell Brook playing it cool, sizing up his opponent.

  14. Round one

    DIng ding!

    Away we go.

  15. Post update

    Lots of questions for Kell Brook tonight, questions deep down even he probably won't know the answers to. He certainly looks like he's got a point to prove as his name is announced to the sound of loud cheers.

    Let's get cracking.

  16. Tale of the tape...

    Brook v Rabchenko

    Brook v Rabchenko

    Kell Brook's trainer Dominic Ingle made a great comment about this bout this week.

    "Rabchenko is a tough kid with only two losses on his record. He's one of those kids you won't get a lot of credit for beating him but it will take a hell of a lot to beat him."

    Tonight feels like a little bit of a thankless task for 'Special K'. No major title on the line, doubters to silence given his surgeries and then a tough dude from Eastern Europe rocks up with little to lose.

    Brook is an inch taller but there's no huge size advantage. He's always been quick and strong in the clinch. In this new weight division, he should be even stronger in those moments. We will soon find out...

    Andrew Priestley: Tonight is last chance saloon for Kell Brook if he wants to rebuild towards another world title shot.
