KELL BROOK will begin his move to light-middleweight by fighting Sergey Rabchenko at Sheffield Arena on March 3.

The 31-year-old in May lost his IBF welterweight title to America’s Errol Spence and, after his long-term struggle to make the 147lb weight limit, will fight the Belarussian who ended the career of former stablemate Ryan Rhodes.

His step up to 154lbs provides a further barrier to making the fight he has long wanted with Amir Khan, who is expected to return at welterweight, but gives him the chance to be a two-weight world champion.

I’m back Babi! #154 #BrookRabchenko
