Kell Brook Looking To Hire Carl Froch's Trainer McCracken?

By Edward Chaykovsky

According to the rumors going around, welterweight contender Kell Brook is considering the possibility of hiring Carl Froch’s trainer Rob McCracken. There are rumors that Brook is looking to make some changes after his recent scare against Carson Jones.

Rising prospect Kid Galahad, also trained by Brook's current coach, Dominic Ingle, has also heard these rumors. He doesn't see how a switch to McCracken will help Brook.

“Kell’s relationship with Dominic is different to mine with him. I think it’s all been one-fight deals so far. They are not as close as I am with Dom; I think with them its strictly business," Galahad told the Sheffield Star.

“My gut feeling is he will stay. The Ingles have always looked after him and got him into the position he is in now. When he left the Ingles a few years ago, he looked ordinary sometimes and then after he came back he looked a million dollars.

“I hope he thinks long and hard. Maybe last time he left it was a mistake and he wouldn’t want to make a mistake twice. McCracken looks after Carl Froch and is involved with the Great Britain squad so how would he have time to look after Kell properly?”

I think hes technically very sound it was just his conditioning that let him down which is quite strange for an Ingle gym fighter. Dom Ingle knows his stuff and is in supreme condition himself, I am thinking it maybe…

Brook would've been more suited to a style other than the Ingle's. He's a very nice boxer but his frailties lie in his style and lack of defence. McCracken is a good coach but if Brook wants a change, he…

[QUOTE=junior gong;12371700]Rob is a very good coach...maybe a good move. Not sure how good he can be for Brook in terms of improving his technique, his fitness and conditioning will take a leap though.[/QUOTE] I agree with this, but his…

Good move for Brook, Mcracken makes sure his fighters are superbly conditioned and good fundamentals, exactly what Kell needs as he takes over from Amir Khan as britains premier fighter from 140-147
