Kell Brook left frustrated by premature death to Gennady Golovkin battle

Kell Brook was forestalled at his trainer Dominic Ingles decision to end his world middleweight game with Gennady Golovkin early but the Sheffield fighter dedicated to return and compete at light-middleweight

Kell Brook could not disguise his thwarting and dejection following his defeat to Gennady Golovkin here on Saturday night, questioning the decision of his teach, Dominic Ingle, to throw in the towel midway through the fifth round at a stage where he felt he was settling into the contest.

Brook was given little chance but the Sheffield fighter battled hard and hurt Golovkin on numerous occasions. However, Brook was taking a lot of penalty himself and including with regard to to his right eye, which had become perceptibly vicious by the third round.

Brook has recognized that Golovkin had burst his eye socket in the previous round, which gave rise to blurred eyesight, but he insisted he felt capable of fighting on. When “youre starting” assuring three, four or five of him its difficult but I was tricking him, I was forestalling him, said the 30 -year-old I hurt him, his legs buckled. Im a warrior and I wanted to carry on. I was ready to fight on. Anyone who develops me knows that.

Ingle, the man who does civilize him, clearly disagreed and intervened to delivering a halt to proceedings 1min 57 sec into the fifth round. Questioned about the decision Brook responded through quite gritted teeth: Youll have to ask Dominic why he did that.

When the question was put to Ingle he justified the decision by insisting that his boxer was taking too much penalty. It was later confirmed that Brook was sent to hospital because of the damaged eye socket but his camp held it was a precautionary measure.

There was no doubt that Brook was being rocked by Golovkin. Kell is a very good soldier but hes not a middleweight, said Golovkin, who has now prevailed 23 consecutive rivalries by knockout or strike and stated its determination to next face another Briton in Billy Joe Saunders, the WBO holder.

For Brook, there is a need to go back to the drawing board and having gone up by two load separations for this fight “hes having” stated his desire to drop back by one and compete at lightmiddleweight.

Id love to fight Canelo[ lvarez] or Liam Smith, said here Sheffield fighter. One things for certain: Ill be back.
