Kell Brook Hopes To Raise UK Boxing's Image a Boost

By Steve Lillis, courtesy of The Daily Star

KELL BROOK is kipping on a blow-up air bed in the spare room just weeks before the biggest fight of his life.

‘Special K’ became a dad for the first time last Thursday when partner Linda gave birth to baby daughter Nevaeh.

It has meant sleeping on an inflatable in the build-up to his big welterweight 12 rounder against Matthew Hatton at Sheffield Arena on March 17.

The unbeaten Yorkshireman, 25, said: “A blow-up bed in the back room might sound uncomfortable, but I’m sleeping like a baby.

“I am so tired from all my training that the minute I lay down I am out for the count.”

The WBA intercontinental champion also believes he’s the man to give boxing a boost after the shameful scenes involving Dereck Chisora and David Haye.

He added: “There are lot of kids in the gym who look up to me as a role model and I would never get involved in terrible stuff like that.”
