Diego Chaves Plans To Target The Body of Kell Brook

By Elisinio Castillo

Former interim-world champion Diego "La Joya" Chaves of Buenos Aires is very confident as he continues training for his fight with welterweight world champion of the International Boxing Federation (IBF), Kell "The Special One" Brook, on Saturday October 24th at the Sheffield Arena in the city of Sheffield, England. The fight will be broadcast live through TyCSports for Argentina and much of Latin America.

Chavez (23-2-1, 19 KO), 29 and currently the No. 4-ranked IBF welterweight contender, sees a lot of flaws in that he can expose in Brook (35-0, 24 KOs). It was will be Chaves' first fight since going to a draw with Timothy Bradley last December.

"It's a great chance to prove myself. Brook is tough and a technical fighter. His opponents so far have not shown the ability to punch like myself. He's good in the short distance, but he has problems when he steps back and after studying him for a while, he can be hurt by body punches, one of my specialties," Chaves said.

"All we have in mind is to walk away with my arm raised. That's why my team, led by my brother and trainer Ismael, will try to give joy to my people. It will be difficult, but remember we had faced Keith Thurman, who surprised me after I dominated much of the fight. Brandon Rios, the only way he could win was by disqualification, and Tim Bradley, one of the pound for pound fighters in the world and I fought him to a draw."

[QUOTE=Weebler I;16018412]Chaves was actually the one who was hit low by Bradley in his last fight.[/QUOTE] Chaves spearheaded him early on in the second I think. In between rounds, his corner was commending him, saying stuff like you got him…

This punk got outpunched and outlanded by Chaves and he's acting like the draw was legit....yeah, OK, sure it was.

I've never understood fighters revealing their gameplan prior to the fight.

Any video clips on Brook showing what Chaves is talking about? Or it's just a ploy to disorient Brook's game plan? I'm not into reviewing past fights. I'm lazy. Could be in the Carson Jones 1 fight... who knows?
