Born Again: Kell Brook can’t “live at peace” because he knows what he has done between fights

THE last time I attempted
to get hold of Kell Brook with a view to writing a feature about him the
interview was scuppered by the small matter of him being slashed in the leg
while on holiday in Tenerife.  

That incident occurred just 19 days after Brook beat Shawn Porter to become the IBF welterweight champion in 2014, and it forced me to pull a handbrake turn on a feature meant to originally celebrate Brook’s seamless ascent from prodigious teenager to fully-fledged world champion.

Unable to answer the phone, much less speak about his victory, Brook spent days in a Spanish hospital recovering from the attack, while I spent days trying to source men to offer comments on his behalf: Dominic Ingle, his current trainer, Dave Coldwell, his old trainer, Johnny Nelson and Ryan Rhodes, his former Wincobank stable mates.
