Good old social media.
No doubt Omar above enjoyed his five minutes of fame and will have a story in work on Monday.
As for Brook, he appears to be frustrated more than ever in that he still doesn’t know if Amir Khan will face him in the ring.
Despite coming down to 147lbs to make the fight and the two boxers sharing the same promoter, it’s still not a foregone conclusion that the fight will actually happen.
