KELL Brook has responded to concerns over his conditioning by adding to his backroom team.

The Sheffield welterweight clung on for a narrow points verdict against American Carson Jones last month, struggling in the later rounds having dominated the first half of the contest.


FORMER British champion Anthony Crolla has completed arguably the strongest line-up in Prizefighter history.

The Joe Gallagher-trained lightweight could come face-to-face again with Derry Matthews, who took the championship from him in April.

Stephen Jennings, Terry Needham and Nathan Brough will form the home contingent at the Liverpool Olympia in October 6, joining Kieran Farrell, another ex-British boss in former super-featherweight champion Gary Skyes, and Liam Patrick Walsh.

“I never expected a line-up quite like this, but Anthony’s inclusion is the icing on the cake,” said promoter Eddie Hearn.

“Ideally we would’ve loved to have this in a 5,000-seater arena but the fans will experience an atmosphere like never before in the Liverpool Olympia and this is a must watch night of boxing.”

Rocky Fielding will also challenge Wayne Reed for the Central Area super middleweight title on the Sky Sports televised show.

TONY Bellew returns to the ring for the first time since his knockout victory against Danny McIntosh with a clash against two-time former super-middleweight champion Edison Miranda on September 8.

The Liverpudlian stormed to a fifth-round knockout victory against Norfolk’s McIntosh at his home-city Echo Arena in April, but on the Sky Sports show he will co-headline with the returning Darren Barker at the Alexandra Palace in London.
