    Default Will Brook fight again?

    A year out and no opponent, sort of seems like he’s done

    Also talking about how Eddie asked him to duck Spence, seems reflective like a guy that’s done.

    Do you have better info over there? Would hate to see him just fade away, but I suppose that’s better than getting hurt.

    He tweeted some video of himself working out yesterday and looked in much better shape than he usually does between fights. Would not be surprised if Hearn makes Brook/Khan in Saudi.

    Brooks story is that of a series of opportunities missed. Never seemed to take advantage of momentum in his career. Not always due to things within his control but often because of bad decisions made and potential chances to shine ungrasped.

    Don't want it to sound like a post career obituary but at this point of inactivity it seems like he is already retired.

    Brooks was in the current issue of Boxing Monthly or Weekly and was intending to fight on. He did not name an opponent but was saying he was keeping himself fit .

    Its seems sad really because he is a good fighter. His only two losses are to Spence and GGG and mainly because of his eye.

    Surely has a good chance of another title shot.

    A really good fighter, massively avoided during his career. He was big, strong, elusive, could punch and had a good chin. Wincobank awkwardness too.

    Its a shame he probably never made the same money as Khan or Hatton, for example, because I think he was always a better fighter than them.

    A somehat chaotic lifestyle outside the ring. And being Sheffield based too perhscwas why he never became a truly international star?

    I still maintain he was crazy to take on Golovkin!

    He can’t make WW Properly, not big enough for LMW, and can’t motivate himself to work his way through the pack.
    The main reason is because he has spent the last 5 years looking for the money grab fight with Khan. He wants an easy payday, don’t we all. But that ship has sailed , it’s worth next to fuck all now and he’s wasted 5 years of his career. Yeah he made good dollar against GGG and Spence, but at what price?
    Shame really cos he was a top top Boxer at his peak.

    The calculated risk that every man and his dog fully expected to backfire, did so spectacularly when Golovkin literally smashed his face in. He fought Spence hard for the most part, was probably winning up to a point but then broke again. The party line being that his other eye was damaged, and it was to be fair but Spence broke more than his eye that night.

    Never really the star attraction that everyone thought he was going to be. If he was he might have been able to cream a few belts off the top in easier fights. His three biggest fights, squeezing past Porter, a hiding from Golovkin and a beatdown from Spence. That's a few tough shifts right there.

    He looked in proper good nick in the pics and vids that he posted recently and fair play to him for that part, always been an issue for him staying in shape. Physically on the surface he looks ready to go. Scratch the surface and there's damage there that can't be undone I feel.

    He'll fight again for sure. But if he gets a big fight against top class opposition. I'd fully expect him to hang in there for a bit until he's softened up enough to plausibly quit between rounds pointing at one of his dodgy eyes.
    When God said to the both of us "Which one of you wants to be Sugar Ray?" I guess I didnt raise my hand fast enough

    Kell Brook vs Mark DeLuca: Sheffield fighter admits to ‘dark times’ as comeback announced after year out

    Kell Brook has revealed his relief at coming through “dark times” and vowed to put on a “statement” in his return to the ring next February against Mark DeLuca.

    The former world champion has been out of the ring for more than a year since a points decision over Australia’s Michael Zerafa last year.

    But Brook (38-2, 26 KOs) has now vowed to impress against the little-known American at the FlyDSA Arena on February 8 as he bids to move back into contention at 147 and 154 pounds, more than two-and-a-half years since losing his title in a knockout defeat to Errol Spence Jr.

    “I’m so happy to be back and I can’t wait to put on a performance for my city on February 8 live on Sky Sports and DAZN,” said Brook.
    “I’ve had a year out, there has been some dark times but what I’ve realised is I love this sport and I know I have some of my biggest years left in the game.

    “DeLuca is a strong, gutsy fighter who is always ready for war but I’m planning on putting on a statement and showing the world that I’m still a force at 154 or 147lbs.”

    DeLuca (24-1, 13 KOs) is a southpaw hailing from Whitman in Massachusetts and is nicknamed ‘The Bazooka’.
