Brook: There is No Way That I'm Losing To Alexander

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star

KELL BROOK is aiming to turn a dream into reality when he challenges for the IBF world welterweight title next month.

Sheffield’s Brook will lock horns with champ Devon Alexander in Detroit on February 23 and says he is in the best shape of his life.

And that, he believes, will help him fulfil a dream he has had since he first walked into the famous Wincobank Gym of Brendan Ingle when he was boy.

Brook, 26, said: “This will be the biggest night of my life and I have been dreaming about it since I first turned up at the Wincobank when I was only nine.

“This is the fight for me, the one I have trained all my life for. There is no way I am going all the way to Detroit without bringing the title back.

“It is my destiny. Every time I walk into the gym, I give it everything. I am so passionate. There is no way I am going to lose.

“I have seen world champions come from my gym and I have always wanted to follow on their footpath, so now is my big chance to become a superstar overnight.”

Brook, unbeaten in 29 professional fights, added: “When you feel like I do the confidence positively oozes from you.

“I feel in the best physical and mental shape of my life.

“I have a great team around me and that is a tremendous boost because they ensure that I am just right for this kind of fight.

“I have had a spartan time, training all over Christmas and being away from my family. But I know it will all be worthwhile in the end.

“I have made a lot of sacrifices but you have to do those things in order to make a dream like mine finally come true.

“There is no way that I am going to make that journey and come back empty-handed.”

[QUOTE=mathed;12923025]I'll bet you, how much you trying to put up? Alexander is going to 1-2, 1-1-2 Brook until the final bell and the UD victory.[/QUOTE] 1M Brook wins. You up for it?

Anybody who is convinced either guy will win easily is tripping,this is a tough call,Alexander has the world level experience but he was well beat by Kotelnik and Matthysse imo and he quit against Bradley-Brook is stepping up,time to see…
