Round and about
Apparently Kell's ballooned up to around 17 and a half stone.

Talks Brook/Khan from 6.12 onwards..

Kell Brook needs to dump Hearn and sign with PBC Al Haymon controls all the big names at welter. And Jnr Middleweight. Failing that sign with Top Rank and get a fight with Crawford.

Hearn the muppet has refused to promote Kell Brook as a fighter in his right....all he has done is just piggy back Brooks marketing of Khans name for the last decade. He has no plan B.... Until AJ came along Brook was the biggest name on the matchroom. Hardly gets a mention from Hearn these days.

Brook needs to take the bulk of the blame if you ask me.

Pretty much everyone he has worked with has commented on him being difficult to work with, and having issues with motivation and living the life. Then there are the stabbings and the various rumours.

Spent too long having learning fights and eliminators, and has wasted what's left of his career waiting on a Khan fight that will probably never happen.

Hearn, Warren, his dad, the Ingles are all somewhat complicit, but he is a grown man and has to shoulder responsibility for his own life and career.

(he is a former world champ with money in the bank, but I think most people believe he could have achieved more).

Any fighter would want to make the most money for taking the least damage possible. Brook made good money but took a hell of a lot of damage that effectively ended his career aged 31, a better promoter could have made him more money over a longer period of time without taking the beatings he took.

He's given me a lot of entertainment over the years and I don't begrudge him a penny of what he's made.

Probably earned less then Nathan Cleverley...and James Degale.

As far as money goes was no where in the big leauges.

Highest purse £2.3 million was GGG. Only fights were he made 7 figures was GGG and maybe Spence.

Not only did Kell under achieve career wise also under achieved financially in comparison to his contemporaries.

To be fair, Warren didn't do a great job with him either.
Warren did offer potential opportunities which Kells Dad and Manager turned down. ( A fight with K9 Bundrage for a belt at 154lb and a potential fight with Miguel Cotto ..)

Kells dad seemed to have a master plan, fight Khan beat Khan become an overnight superstar. Did not want to take any risks that could put that plan in to jeopardy....That did not work out too well.

Here is Kells dad in an interview with Terence Dooley years ago. Just After leaving Warren in 2011.

You can imagine how happy Kel must have been to see Khan warm a reported £7m to fight Billy fucking Dib.

'That kids got issues' - Dennis Hobson

John Fuekes his trainer for his last fight works in Hobsons gym so Dennis clearly knows something.
