: Kell Brook: I’m eating nonstop - Boxing News

Earlier Wednesday, Kell Brook (36-0, 25 KOs) weighed in at a very puffy looking 176lbs for his 30-day weigh-in for his bout against “Triple G” Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (35-0, 32 KOs) next month. Brook looked bloated at the weigh-in, and he bragged afterwards that he’s eating nonstop and that he feels that he’s going to be stronger. He doesn’t look stronger unfortunately.

Golovkin is going about his training camp like a true professional. He weighed in at 165lbs today, and he’s only five pounds from his target weight of 160lbs for the fight. You’re not seeing Golovkin ballooning up in weight, because he’s treating the fight just like it’s any other fight.

Brook should be doing the same thing. It’s never a good idea to deviate from your normal training plan when you go into a training camp. If you normally weigh a certain amount, then it’s smart to stay at the same weight rather than packing on 20 pounds and then having problems moving around the ring.

As far as I can tell, Brook looks bloated with food and water and he looks soft. His promoter Eddie Hearn needs to think about pulling Brook aside and tell him it’s okay if he misses some meals because he’s overdoing it. Brook reminds me how Buster Douglas came into his title defense against Evander Holyfield looking well fed and ended up getting blasted out in a real hurry.

“I’m feeling fantastic and I am this weight because I want to be this weight. I am eating non-stop and I am able to push myself very hard in the gym,” Brook said to skysports.com.

This is what I was afraid of. Yep, I knew this was going to happen as soon as Brook signed for the fight with Golovkin. Instead of controlling his weight by eating moderately, Brook is going whole hog in eating food like it’s going out of style and he’s blown up to the 170s.

Brook was weighing in the 180s recently, and sporting a double chin, so he at least burned off some blubber. But for Brook to be bragging now about how he’s eating everything within sight, it’s just not good. I think Hearn needs to come to Brook’s training facility and to house and put a nice lock on his refrigerator and then toss the key. Hearn should put Brook on a diet of fish, rice and bread to burn that weight off of him proper.

“I am these extra few pounds because I want to be these extra few pounds and I want to be this heavy. I will be bringing the speed as well as the power into this fight,” said Brook.

Who is Brook talking about? He’s not fast and he never has been fast. His hand speed is moderately fast for the 147lb division, and I don’t expect him to be any faster now that he’s started to pack on the pounds with his eating like mad. Brook needs to realize that he’s probably going to be slower than Golovkin on September 10, and that he’s not going to be able to get away from him no matter how hard he tries to run from him around the ring.

Running, holding and throwing fast shots are not going to work for Brook. His best and only chance of winning is if he stands in the center of the ring and tees off with his best power shots in his arsenal.

Brook needs to plant his feet firmly and not move an inch from that spot, because if he uses a lot of movement, it’s only going to tire him out quicker and he’s going to get caught anyway. Brook will not be able to get away from a fighter like Golovkin given the fact that the talented Kazakhstan fighter is so incredibly good at cutting off the ring against his running opponents.

“That speed is there and we are adding extra power to it. I am more durable because I am at a natural weight, so I’ll be using my feet as well as my speed and power in this fight. I am going to shock the world baby,” said Brook.

I hate to drizzle on Brook’s parade, but he’s not going to be more durable because he’s been pigging out and putting on weight. He’s going to be getting tired faster if he’s able to make it past the third round, and I don’t think he will. All that useless weight that Brook is putting on lately is going to be like a giant anchor that is going to drag him down when he gets inside the ring with Gennady.

Brook is typical of fighters with the way he’s bragging about having gained power now that he’s put on weight. When you see fighters that have put on weight, it’s rare for them to be any more powerful than they were before they put on weight. They’re usually slower, easier to hit with the same punching power they had before. With their slower hands, it makes it easier for their opponents to see their shots and brace for them or block them.

Not sure bloated is the word I'd use:




He obviously has to cut all the water weight to get to 160 though

Dan Rafael chat wrap 8/12:

- Crawford said after the Postol fight he was willing to fight Pacquiao, but it had to be at 140.
- Would like to see Crawford vs. Garcia.
- Thinks that BJS wants to sit on his title and get paid to fight bums. He is a ducker period. He ran from GGG and now is running from Rosado, Stevens, and Monroe.
- Canelo vs. BJS in December is not necessarily dead, but this will certainly change the terms of negotiations.
- Tim Bradley made a great and loyal decision to stay with TR. It has worked out for him very well financially and they really have done right by him.
- The Canelo vs. Smith undercard is looking roughh with Ortiz and BJS backing out. Quigley and Diego De La Hoya are possible. They are also talking about a co-feature. No idea who it would be, but it better be good.
- Will the winner of Ward vs. Kovalev be the #1 PFP fighter? Not necessarily.
- Does Ward and Kovalev's tuneups being anti-climatic hurt the PPV? No. The people who are interested in this fight will still be interested.
- Don't worry, the Pacquiao-Vargas issues does not put Ward-Kovalev in jeopardy.
- Does Kell Brook have trouble making 147? Yes and he believes it was why he took this fight, because 147 is tough.
- Will Brook last 12 rounds vs. GGG? No.
- Any chance we see Crawford vs. Mikey Garcia? Unlikely, TR isn't about to give Mikey a paycheck.
- Bute should be suspensed at least 9 months for his B sample being positive.
- In regards to Manny Pacquiao's PPV interfering with Ward-Kovalev and potentially making Manny a free agent: everything Bob does is calculated.
- Pacquiao vs. GGG? Zero chance ever.
- Why did Pacquiao choose Vargas instead of Crawford? It is an easier fight.
- Edwin Rodriguez's career is on the way down. He can't beat anyone at the elite level anymore.
- GGG vs. Pavlik? GGG by KO.
- As far as he knows PBC is strictly investor money, Haymon didn't put any of his money into it.
- Will Floyd come back and fight again? Believes so.
- Salido and Lomachenko talks are not dead, still a gap in money, but that is not unexpected.
- ODH vs. Quartey? Decent fight, great 12th round, and DLH rightfully won.
- Sad that JuanMa Lopez is making a comeback.
- Thoughts on Artur Beterbiev? Good contender, but he has doubts vs. top opponents.
- The HW title picture is really jammed up right now, so Jarrell Miller is a ways away from getting a shot.
- High on Rob Brant. He is doing what he needs to do. Just needs more experience and an opportunity. Probably ready to step up to the next level of competition.
- Maidana's retirement: A lot of exciting fights, humble attitude, his team was easy to deal with, and he fought everyone.

BJS is a pussy, straight up. Clearly Saunders' plan is to avoid any type of challenge and get a Canelo fight which I'm sure in his mind he actually has a chance of winning, whereas with Golovkin, Saunders literally said Golovkin would knock out both himself and Eubank on the same night lol. Imagine if anyone else said something like that? And then he talks shit to fighters on Twitter after rejecting fight offers. He obviously wouldn't fight Golovkin, he wouldn't fight Lemeuix or Stevens (who are now going to fight each other which is a dope fight), he wouldn't fight Jacobs and he wouldn't even fight Rosado who has been knocked out so many times the past few years I've lost count. What an absolute joke he's become after getting a narrow decision over Eubank.

He's a clown and the WBO should strip him soon since their rules state a title holder must defend the title within 9 months. The last time he fought was in December against Andy Lee, so that probably means he's going to fight some no name bum real soon because that title is the only thing keeping him relevant.

Didn't hear anything till just now, Googled and I guess it's being explored. Really gotta scratch your head at Gamboa and his team's decisions. Ever since he left Top Rank his career has been shit. It was clear 135 pounds was too big for him against Crawford and here they are negotiating with Cotto who likely isn't going to go below 150 pounds (he wouldn't for Juan Manual Marquez so he won't for Gamboa). I understand it's a big fight for him and if he wants to "cash out" sure, by all means sign the fight and get stopped again by a bigger man, but if he wants to continue his career he should focus on 130 pounds.

Damn, bottom of the article states his boxing career could be over, which makes me think he was shot in the knee.

Jermall Charlo's team puts rumors to rest
by fat Dan

No, junior middleweight world titleholder Jermall Charlo is not injured and, no, he does not plan to vacate his belt in order to avoid a mandatory defense against Julian “J Rock” Williams.

Rumors suggesting those two scenarios have swirled but they are not true, Ronnie Shields, Charlo’s trainer, told ESPN.com.

What is true is that Charlo had a LASIK procedure on his eyes to improve his vision in July and received a 60-day medical exception from the IBF for his mandatory defense.

Understandably, the Charlo camp did not advertise that he had the procedure, which delayed a bout initially penciled in for early October. But the IBF’s Lindsey Tucker told ESPN.com that shortly after he was notified that the sides had a deal for the fight and he canceled the purse bid, contracts were not filed within the 15-day window and then Charlo asked for the medical delay via a letter from promoter Tom Brown.

Tucker said Charlo was granted the exception on July 8 and it expires on Sept. 8, after which contracts for the fight are once again due within 15 days.

Shields said the 26-year-old Charlo (24-0, 18 KOs) and twin brother Jermell Charlo, who also holds a junior middleweight world title, have worn contact lenses since they were kids. He said Jermell had the same procedure on his eyes a few years ago and that it dramatically improved his vision, but Jermall did not have it done until last month.

“It wasn’t serious. I don’t know where all these rumors about an injury are coming from or that he wouldn’t fight Williams,” Shields said. “It’s not true.”

Shields said that before Jermall’s title defense against former titleholder Austin Trout on May 21 in Las Vegas, that the Nevada commission declined to accept his eye exam results from his doctor in Houston and required him to fly to Las Vegas two weeks before the fight to be examined by its doctor. Shields said he went with Charlo for the exam, which cost them a day of training during a critical time of the camp.

“We did it. We made the trip and after we did it Jermall said he would [have the procedure] and get it over with,” Shields said.

Charlo was licensed to fight Trout and won a competitive decision to retain his title for the second time but “the doctor told him in Nevada he didn’t necessarily need the surgery but that if he fought somewhere else [with stricter rules on uncorrected vision] he might not have passed the exam, so he did what his brother did and had it done,” Shields said.

“But Jermall is not injured and he has never said he wouldn’t defend against Williams. It’s a tough fight but we live for tough fights. It’s a fight Jermall has wanted. We’re looking forward to it. Jermall loves to fight and wants to prove he’s the best out there. He will fight whoever they put in front of him.”

Shields said Charlo is training and should be cleared for full contact in about two weeks.

The fight against Williams (22-0-1, 14 KOs), 26, of Philadelphia, is likely to take place sometime in November and probably will be televised by Showtime.

Billy Joe Saunders calling out GGG again, this time it might be for real since Tyson Fury is telling him to fight him:

JOHN3:16. ✔ @tyson _Fury
It will take a Gypsy to beat this unbeatable GGG, that Gypsy is @bjs aunders_ Let's Bash another Kazak Both K2 aswell, #Gypsybrother ������

GGG can either take this fight in the UK or the WBA will order Jacobs vs Golovkin. The latter is probably the better fight but Saunders has that last belt so I'd like to see Saunders in December, Jacobs early next year.

This is promising news. Best fight at 160 between the #1 vs #2 (until Canelo makes his move to 160 permanently).


Golovkin's Manager Confident Daniel Jacobs Deal Will Get Finalized - Boxing News


Lots of power in this fight - Jacobs has stopped his last 12 opponents and Golovkin has stopped his last 23 opponents.
