Kell Brook’s Top Five Opponents

Kell Brook

Gennady Golovkin

LOST – TKO 5
O2 Arena, London – 10 September 2016

Stepping up in weight to face the monstrous Kazakh middleweight seemed a ballsy move on the face of it. With little lose (apart from the odd body part) unbeaten Kell was on a hiding to nothing and needed a big name on his record. Domestic commentators became increasingly excited as the Sheffield mover caused occasional issues with his fast-handed raids, against an off-colour Golovkin. Once “GGG” knuckled down and decided enough was enough, he bludgeoned Brook with hard and accurate shots from both fists to put an end to the madness.
