Brook eases to win over Hatton

Brook eases to win


Brook, who took his professional record to 27 wins with no losses, turned on the style at the Motorpoint Arena as he raced out of the blocks and recorded a one-sided victory.

The fight was scored 118-109, 119-108 and 119-107 in favour of Brook by the three judges.

“I enjoyed it,” the 25-year-old said. “It was a spectacular night, now we're going to go on to bigger and better things as there's no-one to touch me in Britain."

Brook drew blood from Hatton’s nose before the end of the first round, with a series of combination punches.

That set the tone for the bout and Brook continued to dominate, despite a brief period in the fifth when Hatton connected with a couple of solid right hooks.

Hatton did well to go the distance after he was left on the canvas early in the ninth after Brook landed a sharp left encounter.
