Britain`s Kell Brook stretched his perfect record to 33 straight wins by beating Shawn Porter by a majority decision late Saturday to capture the International Boxing Federation`s world welterweight title.

The 28-year-old Brook, who was taking part in the first title fight of his career, improved to 33-0, with 22 knockouts.

Brook, of Sheffield, England, won handily on two judges scorecards, 117-111 and 116-112, while a third scored it even, 114-114.

Porter suffered the first loss of his career as he was making the second defence of the IBF title he won in December.
