Kell is ready to make history against Gennady Golovkin


Updated 3rd August 2016

Kell Brook is ready to prove he is ‘among the elite’ when he challenges Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin for the WBA, WBC, IBO and IBF World Middleweight titles on September 10.


The IBF welterweight king is teeming with confidence and excited to make history’ when he delivers the ‘biggest fight in world boxing’ for the fans when he clashes with GGG at The O2 live on Sky Sports Box Office and HBO World Championship Boxing.

“It doesn’t get better than this,” Kell said.


“I’m the best Welterweight in the world and no-one wants to fight me, he’s the best Middleweight in the world and no one wants him. I’ll be his size on the night and I’m bringing the speed to Middleweight. To be the best you have to beat the best.”


Brook, who stood toe to toe with GGG at their UK press conference in London on Monday, is confident he will maintain his speed and power as he prepares to step up two weight divisions.


“I’m going to be so sharp and so powerful on the night,” Kell said.


“No-one has got the best out of me before but GGG will bring that out in me and I’m excited to see that from myself.


“I always find a way to win and there’s going to be massive drama in the fight.


“I’m very healthy at 160lbs. I’m hydrated and eating well; nice sized meals that are giving me so much energy and I’m giving more of myself in the gym.


“I’m getting pushed in the gym and I’m delivering. I want to go down in history like Sugar Ray Robinson as doing massive things in big fights and beating the best – GGG is the best fighter in the world, and I am going to beat him.


“I’m doing this for the fans that have wanted me to step-up and show them what Kell Brook can really do and prove I am among the elite in the sport.”

The Sheffield star is undefeated in 36 fights, with 28 knockouts, while Golovkin, the undisputed world middleweight champion, has won all 35 of his professional bouts with 32 coming inside the scheduled distance.


The Kazakhstan KO king is looking forward to the fight but accepts that Kell is his ‘biggest test’ to date.


“Kell Brook has my full respect and a great team behind him,” Golovkin said.


“I’m very excited and happy to be in London. I’m excited to perform in front of the UK fans.


“It’s not easy for us to get opponents – he’s ready for me and I’m ready for him. I will bring a big, big show to London and the fans are going to love it.


“Kell Brook is the biggest test to me - he’s a great champion, he’s moving up in weight but great fighters have done that and won so I know he’s a great boxer and he will test me the most.”


Golovkin may not have faced anything like Kell in the ring before, but his trainer Abel Sanchez is no stranger to the Sheffielder.


“Four years ago we were here for Carson Jones and there’s hundreds more cameras,” Abel said.


“Kell’s improved massively since then and we’re looking forward to a great fight against the best Welterweight in the world.


“These guys are very intelligent in the ring and that’s what makes them great. When the fear becomes aggression they want to win and excel. For GGG, Kell, Floyd Mayweather and Andre Ward – it’s the intelligence that sets them apart and makes them great.”



Both times Kell faced the tough American he came out on top and trainer Dominic Ingle feels confident the result will be the same against GGG.


“We’ve had a great camp in Spain. We’re in a quiet place in Fuerteventura and that’s allowing us to get on with our work away from prying eyes,” Dom said.


“Kell is going to be in great shape and he has to be to fight GGG.


“Kell is going to come out on top on the night – we’ve looked at GGG and we’ll have the right plan. Kell has always said he’s going to deliver something historic and he’s done that already, and on September 10 Kell will become the new Middleweight champion of the world.


“You have to go through the gears as GGG is a very clever and accomplished fighter so he has to match his intelligence, power and engine. The fear in the fight makes you perform the best, we’ve addressed all those scenarios and he’ll deliver on the night.”
