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.”
