Kell Brook has already said he doesn’t want any excuses after he’s shocked the world against middleweight king Gennady Golovkin, as he insists he can do and will do. And “The Special One,” does not in any way want to risk anybody claiming after his upset victory that it came with the assistance of anything illegal. Brook, the IBF welterweight king who rose through the ranks the hard way, from British level to European and then to world level, has always been a clean athlete.
Making the welterweight limit was proving tough for Brook, which was one of the reasons he agreed to take the massive gamble of a fight with the feared puncher known as Triple-G, but Brook continued to put in the honest, hard work so as to make 147. Never has Brook’s name ever been anywhere close to linked to PEDs, not as much as a whisper – and Brook is making sure it stays that way. Happy to be going through a series of tests conducted by VADA, earlier this week Brook underwent his first test. Brook took to his Twitter page to indicate how pleased he is to be proving – not that he needed to – how he is one of the sport’s clean practitioners.
