Brook Hopes Hatton Win Will Boost The Wincobank Gym

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

KELL BROOK says beating Matthew Hatton on Saturday will bring back the glory days to the Wincobank Gym in Sheffield.

Unbeaten Brook trains at the same gym – run by Brendan Ingle, 71, and his sons – which has produced world champs like Naseem Hamed, Johnny Nelson and Junior Witter.

And Brook, 25, is the latest Wincobank star on a quest for global glory. But before he gets a world title shot, the Sheffield welterweight must first clash with Manchester rival Hatton.

And Brook insists Hatton – the younger brother of former light-welterweight world champion Ricky – will not upset his plans at the Motorpoint Arena.

He said: “It’s been a quiet few years for the gym but all that is about to change. My fight has been getting a lot of publicity and I’m top of the bill.

“Now I’m at the stage where I’m flying the flag for the gym. I’m glad I’ve brought the gym back alive again.

“The gym breeds champions. Now it’s my turn – and I don’t mind which world champion I face after this next fight.”
