Otherwise known as ‘The Special One’, Kell Brook started off as a youngster in the gym and quickly picked up the unorthodox, familiar and switch hitting style.


Kell started boxing when he was nine, when his father brought him into the gym to see if Brendan could channel his energy and natural punching power.


At the age of 12, Kell decided to follow the path and become a professional fighter.


His amateur career saw him win gold at the Four Nations Junior Tournament in 2003 for England, as well as see him train and learn alongside the likes of Johnny Nelson and Junior Witter and turned professional straight after his 18th birthday.


His pro career all began in September 2004, defeating Peter Buckley at Don Valley Stadium.


Following that Kell showed a statement of intent in his next three fights; defeating Andy Cosnett and Brian Coleman inside the opening round and Leeroy Williamson in the second.


A year since turning professional Kell had nine straight victories to his name.


Brook made quick work of all he faced and with 16 wins to his name he took on Barrie Jones at York Hall for the vacant British Welterweight title.


Kell took the belt with a seventh round stoppage.


After defences against Scotsman Kevin McIntyre in Glasgow, Stuart Elwell at York Hall and Michael Lomax at the M.E.N Arena in Manchester, Kell claimed the Lonsdale belt outright.


He was named the Young British Boxer of the Year by the Boxing Writer’s Club in September 2009, an honour once bestowed on former Ingle Gym fighter Prince Naseem Hamed and Brook was certainly showing star potential.


In March 2010 Brook added the WBO Inter-Continental title to his collection, demolishing Krzysztof Bienias in six rounds at the ECHO Arena in Liverpool. An all British clash with Michael Jennings came next and Brook won with a technical knockout in round five.


In August Kell accomplished his life dream and became the IBF World welterweight champion with a 12 round majority decision over champion Shawn Porter at the StubHub Center, Carson California.


Kell became a household name and after his brave World Middlweight showdown with the most feared fighter of the time, Gennady Golovkin in 2016.


His reign as the IBF Welterweight champion lasted nearly three years before losing to current champion Errol Spence Jr in 2017.


Brook returned to the ring in February 2020 after 14 months without a bout, showing he is still world level defeating Mark DeLuca in seven rounds. He is looking to become a two-time world champion before he hangs up his gloves.
