*WBF Official Golovkin v Brook Thread*

Recommended Posts

WBC/WBA/IBF middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin faced off with IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook at a press conference in London today to promote their September 10 showdown at the O2 Arena.


Gennady Golovkin: I’m very excited and happy to be in London. I’m excited to perform in front of the UK fans. Kell Brook has my full respect and a great team behind him. 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.

Kell Brook: This is the biggest fight in world boxing – I’m so excited. 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. I’m going to be so sharp and so powerful on the night. 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. It doesn’t get better than this and 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.

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.


Abel Sanchez – Golovkin’s trainer: Four years ago we were here for Carson Jones and there’s hundreds more cameras – 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.

Dominic Ingle – Brook’s trainer: 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. 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 says 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.

Tom Loeffler – Golovkin’s promoter: The heart that Kell Brook shows as a Welterweight stepping up to fight GGG is much bigger than the Middleweight’s that won’t get in the ring with GGG. There’s been a huge response for this fight with HBO and RTL in Germany, GGGs first fight with them and we’re excited about that. This fight solves the problem for both guys trying to get opponents to get in the ring. The ticket sales were remarkable and the response to the two press conferences has been brilliant – we can’t wait for this fight.

Eddie Hearn – Brook’s promoter: Every now and then you make a fight that makes your hairs on your arms stand on end – this is it. We have the best Middleweight in the World and best WW in the world. Kell Brook has been with us for 13 fights and I believe he’s very special. I was in Madison Square Garden when GGG beat David Lemieux and I had the same feeling about him. Kell is stepping up to face the most best dangerous fighter in the world – and to be a great fighter you need to do great things. We’re very confident and Kell is here to win not be in a no-lose situation. It’s my pleasure to bring GGG to the UK for this wonderful fight – he’s a fighter I admire greatly and it’s great to work with Tom Loeffler and HBO.

Im hoping Kell has it in him, but I just dont believe he has the necessary experience in him at the top level to have a chance; GGG is p4p the toughest fucker on the planet for me!

"I think I will defend my title again but it all depends on what is the biggest fight out there for me," Brook told Nick Parkinson. "I'm not going back just to fight anyone, I want to fight people the fans are excited about.

"I want to be in huge fights. I've become world champion and now I get excited by fighting the best out there, so I will only go the weight where the big fights are. Errol Spence would be a big fight and he's tipped to do great things. There would be big interest in me fighting him in the US and he's my mandatory so that's a fight that could happen. If people want to see that fight, I will do it."

Im not sure Kell can win the fight but he deserves a big name and im seriously rooting for him - G is right though he needs to keep focused on one fight at a time!

Kell Brook showed off his impressive physique ahead of his fight with Gennady Golovkin


If there was any lingering doubt as to whether Kell Brook would be able to move up two weight divisions for his mega fight then this image should dispel those concerns. With his added bulk, the unbeaten Sheffield fighter looks in impressive shape ahead of his meeting with feared WBA Super, WBC and IBF world middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin for his belts at the O2 next Saturday. Posing during a training session, Brook flexed and roared at the camera, posting the image to Instagram with the caption: 'Week out... Let's get it... #WarReady.'
