Take it from a fighter who went blind in one eye – Kell Brook did the right thing

Kell Brook was absolutely right to take a knee against Spence, says John Murray

IN the wake of his stoppage loss to Errol Spence Jnr at the weekend, during which he suffered a broken eye socket, Kell Brook has received criticism for voluntarily taking a knee to end the fight.

The Sheffield star made a bright start but his left eye socket was broken in the seventh round before he was dropped and eventually stopped in the 11th when he took a knee and was counted out.

Last September Brook moved to middleweight and was stopped in five by Gennady Golovkin after breaking his right eye socket.
