Few have combated adversity with the tenacity & good humour of Kell Brook. As a boy He found boxing an escape from the streets thanks to renown coach Brendan Ingle & had his first bout at just 12. Kell won 31 amateur fights total, two ABA Championships & Gold at the prestigious 4 Nations Tournament. Kell turned pro at just 18 learning his trade on the road fighting many rough journeyman. Kell seemed poised for success when out of nowhere he was stabbed while on a night out in Sheffield. Kell got back in the ring STAT & the tough tract he sewed bore fruit in ‘08 with a British Welterweight title win. Kell next claimed the WBO Intercontinental Welterweight belt in 2010 & the WBA version the next year. Kell finally realized his dream in August 2014 when he won the IBF Welterweight title after a 12 round war only to be sidelined two weeks later due to a brutal knife attack while on holiday with his then pregnant wife. Characteristically Kell said he would be back to defend his title. Opportunity knocked in September 2016 when he took on feared puncher Gennady GGG Golovkin a full two divisions above Kell’s normal fighting weight & gave a great accounting of himself - many had him winning prior to the freak injury that forced the stoppage in the 5th round, most thought Kell exposed the fearsome GGG & everyone came away respecting Kell for stepping up when no one else would. Kell once again stepped up facing feared young buck Errol Spence Jr dropping his IBF title in a classic fight. Kell will make a fresh start in 2019 coming back from adversity yet again this time at Super Welterweight. Kell has lived three lifetimes in a relatively short career, yet he remains one of the most dedicated, positive & entertaining boxers in the world & we at BOXRAW are honoured to have him as an ambassador - hey Kell, got any more of those chocolate brownies?
