Kell Brook Unveils New Team Members For Saldivia Bout

By Edward Chaykovsky

Welterweight contender Kell Brook (28-0, 18KOs) has added a few new members to his team, after a lackluster performance against Carson Jones on July 7th in Sheffield. In the second half of that fight, Brook grew tired and took punishment.  After twelve rounds he won a close majority decision.

On October 20th at Motorpoint Arena, he will face dangerous Hector Saldivia (41-2, 32KOs) in an IBF final eliminator.

To prepare for that fight, the Sheffield Star reports that Brook has added nutrionist David Stache, joint owner of S1 Supplements of West Street, and he also brought on Dave Hembrough, an expert in therapy and rehabilitation who has worked in the fields of power lifting and Olympic weightlifting. Dominic Ingle will remain as the head trainer of Brook.

Does he really think a powerlifting coach is going to make the difference? The great fighters of the past didn't even lift weights, they just did calisthenics and wood chopping.
