Brook went face-to-face with September 10 opponent Gennady Golovkin as a mass of press watched on and promised to put on the performance of his life against a fighter widely regarded as one of the best pound for pound in the world.
“This is the biggest fight in world boxing,” declared Brook. “It makes me so excited to be in the game. It’s the best fighting the best.
“I’m bringing the speed up to the middleweight division and some power. It doesn’t get any bigger than Gennady Golovkin.
“I want to test myself at the highest level. I’m excited to see the best of me and what I can do. I always find a way to win. I’m eating well, drinking water and I want to go down in history like my hero Sugar Ray Robinson.
“It’s wonderful for me having so much energy. I’m not minimising my meals and giving the team so much energy,” he added.
The 29 year-old moves up 13 pounds to take on his greatest challenge, although there wasn’t much difference between the two at the face-off ahead of the World Boxing Council’s check weigh-in due to take place in the coming days.
Golovkin is always the epitome of cool and seems happy to be taking in the UK sights before his scheduled return trip to trade blows with Brook in the fall.
