Kell Brook reunites with trainer Dominic Ingle, looks to return before end of the year

Brook has been out of action since last December.

Former welterweight titlist Kell Brook (38-2, 26 KOs), after a brief departure with longtime trainer Dominic Ingle, has reenlisted his services as he looks to make a return to the ring by November or December. Brook hasn’t fought since taking wins over Michael Zerafa and Sergey Rabchenko in 2018 — following back-to-back defeats against Gennadiy Golovkin and Errol Spence, fights where Brook had each of his orbital bones broken.

“I’ve got my desire back and everyone in the gym is pushing each other. We’ve got [WBO world super-middleweight champion] Billy Joe Saunders, Kid Galahad, Liam Williams, John Joe Joyce and Yves Ngabu all pushing each other.

“I’m looking for big names and I feel I’ve got a lot more to give. I believe at this stage it’s going to be at super welterweight.”

It’s said that Brook has the possibility on landing on the Andy Ruiz-Anthony Joshua undercard on December 7, but no possible opponents have been named. A fight against longstanding rival Amir Khan would obviously be something Brook would be interested in, but Khan has turned his back on that fight and the fans who’ve craved it time and time again, thus making it highly unlikely.

So if Brook indeed takes his next fight at 154lbs, who’s a good opponent you’d like to see him in against?
