Ahead of the fight of his life against Gennady Golovkin, below is the Kell Brook Behind The Ropes segment.
After watching Kell Brook Behind The Ropes, it certainly provides some food for thought in terms of how Brook is approaching this sizeable task against ‘GGG’ – notably his strength and conditioning work.
Brook has always been a very big welterweight fighter, probably too big for the 147lbs weight class in reality, but has always found a way to boil down to the limit over the years after exerting considerable stress on himself.
Now moving up to 160lbs he looks a man more naturally suited to a division, with him clearly preparing the right way with a team of experts and not eating his way up to the middleweight limit.
He’s also been getting some top notch sparring in preparation for Golovkin, one of his partners been WBO junior- middleweight world champion Liam Smith who is currently getting ready for his own big fight against Canelo Alvarez next month.
Brook is a very good puncher at welterweight, but the question will be will it carry up with up to 160lbs in terms of having enough pop to at least get Golovkin’s respect and keep him off in the fight?
If it’s a more boxing-type strategy he employs that is. Standing toe to toe and going into the trenches with Golovkin surely isn’t something he’s considering.
I’d be more inclined to think he’ll try to use what could be some superior speed to attempt to stick and move on Golovkin, which is no mean feat in itself mind you.
Stamina will be a big factor in this scenario, as extra bulk and strength gained in this training camp will be put to the ultimate test over twelve rounds against Golovkin, a man who is as relentless as they come.
