In defence of Kell Brook and new trainer John Fewkes

Don't be surprised to see Kell Brook improve, just like Tyson Fury did, against a better opponent, writes Dennis Hobson
Kell Brook
Sheffield Show Weigh In  |  Mark Robinson/Matchroom Boxing

I WAS at the Kell Brook fight against Michael Zerafa at the weekend.

I thought Kell was a little flat, but when a fighter gets in his 30s and only has maybe a few fights left, then people start to say, ‘Is he done?’

He’s had flat performances before though – if you look at his first fight with Carson Jones he got hurt, but then did a number on him in the rematch; which shows how flat he can be, and also how on top of his game he can be too.
