My eye will be as strong as before after eye surgery – says Brook camp

Kell Brook will have no apprehension when he fights for the first time since undergoing surgery on a broken eye socket, trainer Dominic Ingle says.

Brook fights American Errol Spence at Bramhall Lane on Saturday to defend his IBF World welterweight title.

It marks a return to 147lbs for Brook, who suffered the injury in a defeat to Gennady Golovkin at middleweight.

“Looking at Kell sparring, you wouldn’t think the eye will come into this for one minute,” Ingle said.

“He has sparred a big super-middleweight in Jamie Cox who can punch. He got caught once or twice and there were no signs of problems. We can safely draw a line under that injury and write it off,” he told the 5 live boxing podcast.
