Golovkin To Fight Brook In London In September

Brook will be fighting in the middleweight category, and believes his speed will better Golovkin’s strength.

Speaking to former Golovkin opponent Matthew Macklin, who visited the 30-year-old’s training camp to observe his preparations, Brook said: “I have got no respect for him when I get in that ring. He has got to show me the power to get that respect.

“My thoughts for this fight are to keep the speed of a welterweight coming up, but to also use the extra power I will have at a higher weight.

“That is what I have got to do – use the speed and use the angles. I need to be elusive, use movement, be thinking and be sharp in this fight.”

Brook added: “I have to drain a lot to make welterweight. I know I am going to be coming into this very healthy, very hydrated and full of carbohydrates so I will have that energy to last 12 rounds and keep that speed and power throughout every round.”
