VIDEO Dominic Ingle targeting the big fights for Brook in 2016


Updated 21st November 2015

Ingle Gym Head Trainer Dominic Ingle is targeting the big fights for Kell in 2016.


As the IBF world welterweight champion, Brook, recovers from a rib injury, Dom is optimistic he will be back in the ring early next year.




“Those fights realistically have got to come in 2016,” Dom said.


“He’s 30 in May and after 30 it is all down hill so they say, but you have to work twice as hard to keep your fitness and keep motivated so realistically he needs those big fights in 2016.


“He’s probably got to face his mandatory at some point, I think you call him Kevin Bizier, he won the other week, but I think Kell really wants the bigger fights – we’ve been talking about Timothy Bradley and Amir Khan and I think they are the big fights that he wants, so roll on next year.”


Kell had been scheduled to make the third defence of his IBF title in front of his home crowd of Sheffield last month, but a rib injury sustained in training forced his withdrawal from the fight.


Now on the road to recovery, Dom is optimistic that Kell could be back in the ring as early as January to add to his perfect 35-fight record.


“It’s gradually healing, it’s a slow process,” Dom said.


“Today he has been in the gym and he says it is probably about 50% better than it was, so he has got a couple more weeks to go before he can really start training fully.


“We have been keeping his fitness going but he is probably another three or four weeks before we start resuming sparring and now we are looking at maybe the end of January beginning of February for a fight and it is all geared towards that.


“With a rib injury you have got to rest, you have just got to make sure that you are not getting hit on that rib. I mean, when it first happened it restricted his movement throwing his shots as you can understand by twisting.


“Also, it was affecting his breathing, when your ribs are hurt it effects your diaphragm so sometimes you can be straining to breathe properly when you are under exercise stress.


“That has eased off now and he has been doing his fitness work and hitting the bags and he is probably 50% recovered, so another couple of weeks and you will see it fully healed.


“We are back to where we were last year when he got stabbed and had half of his leg hacked at and that was a slow process, so he is used to injury.


“Unfortunately it has played a big part in slowing his career down, he got through that last year and he came back with a fantastic performance against Jo Jo Dan.


“He is one of those fighters that just has to train through it and sometimes injury comes, but there is always light at the end of the tunnel.


“Mayweather has said he has retired and people are saying he might come out of retirement, Manny Pacquoao is talking about fighting Amir Khan, but we’ve been hearing this talk for years so Kell’s just got to beat who is in front of him.”
