2015 Boxing Globe Boxer of the Year: Kell Brook

January 3, 2016
Leave a Comment

Kell Brook only fought two times this year after coming to America and taking the belt from Shawn Porter in 2014, but in those 2 fights Brook was barely touched and undefeated in every round.

The vote was tight between our staff, and we had to come back to look at the overall numbers a 2nd time, but Kell Brook is our Boxer of the Year.

The man called Special K, had an impressive year, (or year in a half but who is counting?) and did more than enough as the IBF Welterweight Champion in 2015.

We understand that JoJo Dan isn’t a top of crop opponent, but Brook didn’t handle him like one. He easily dismantled Dan in just 4 easy rounds, and when talking about the fight at our staff meeting we couldn’t remember if Dan even landed a good solid punch in those 4 rounds.

It was a take care of business fight, and Brook handled it like he was working from home on his day off. Light work.

Just 2 months later, Brook entered the ring at the O2 Center as the headliner of a giant card to face Frankie Gavin, and he was on point like a rifle gauge. The fight was called in just 6 rounds.

The 2015 Boxing Globe Boxer of the Year, only fought for 10 rounds in 2015. So it wasn’t by the amount of work, but the dominance in those 10 rounds.

Dominated is an understatement. Brook won all 10 rounds, and wasn’t even hit hard enough to kill a wasp in any of the rounds.

This was the closest vote we have had in our 3 years of naming a boxer of the year, but it was hard to not pick Brook even over PBC Boxer of the Year, Keith Thurman and ESPN’s pick of Canelo Alvarez who actually tied Brook in our first vote.

Congrats to Special K, Kell Brook! @SpecialKBrook on Twitter
