KELL BROOK promised not to give his fans the jitters in his next fight.

He insists there will be no repeat of his last scrap against Carson Jones when he faces Hector Saldivia in a final eliminator for the IBF welterweight title.

The pair meet in Sheffield on October 20 and Brook says his fans wont be left with their hearts in their mouths this time around.

That was the case last month when Jones came back strongly in the latter stages of the contest and had Brook, 25, in trouble for the first time in his career.

Brook admitted afterwards that he hadnt prepared properly.

But he has now added a dietician to his team to make sure there is no repeat of his Steel City panic.

Brook said: Weve addressed a lot of the problems that came out against Jones.

I scared a few people towards the end of that fight and it got a bit hairy in there.

Carson was more dangerous than people thought and he had done his homework.

I broke my nose midway through the fight and I was swallowing blood so it was hard to breath.

I wasnt myself in the build-up to the fight and I didnt feel good in training. I had to dig in to get through.

I was picking things up that I thought were the right way to go about preparing and you can get away with it up to a certain level.

But now I am at the top and looking to mix it with the elite. We have brought in a dietician who has got me eating steaks in the morning and six carefully selected meals in the day.

Im losing weight the right way now and Im ahead of schedule.

Weve also brought in a strength and conditioning guy.

Were going to Spain next week to do some really hard graft so Im confident there will be no repeat of the struggles against Jones.

Argentine Saldivia has a stunning record of 32 KOs from 41 wins and Brook knows he has to improve if he wants to reach his ultimate goal a world title shot.

TICKETS for the Brook-Saldivia fight are on sale from the Motorpoint Arena Sheffi eld box office at www.motorpointarenasheffield.co.uk or (tel) 0114 256 5656.
