Dimitrenko is Now Being Groomed By Tommy Brooks

By Luke Furman

American trainer Tommy Brooks, who years ago worked with Evander Holyfield and Mike Tyson, is now grooming Alexander Dimitrenko (32-2, 21 KOs). After suffering a knockout loss to Kubrat Pulev in May, Dimitrenko knew it was time for a change. Now that he broke away from Universum, Dimitrenko has high hopes for the future.

My contract with Universum ended on September 15. I'm a free agent, but I have a team supporting me and a good coach," Dimitrenko said.
