Brook's coach Ingle slams 'ignorant' Eubank Jnr


Kell Brook's trainer has hit back at "ignorant" Chris Eubank Jnr after the British Middleweight champion said his corner would never throw the towel in.

Brook went toe-to-toe with WBC, IBF and IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin in a thriller at the O2 Arena last Saturday before Dominic Ingle called for a thrilling fight to be stopped in the fifth round.

IBF welterweight champion Brook suffered a broken eye socket and revealed after the pulsating bout that he could see four or five Golovkins due to the damage the Kazakh powerhouse inflicted on him in London.

Eubank Jnr tweeted Golovkin following his victory over Brook stating: "@GGGBoxing if you want a fight with a real British Middleweight... come get some. My corner don't own towels."

Ingle responded by questioning Eubank Jnr's credentials and accusing the 26-year-old of being naive. 

He told TalkSPORT: "When Chris Eubank Jnr boxed Billy Joe Saunders, the first five rounds were a non-event. That wasn't fighting.

"So it is no good Eubank Jnr talking about fighting to the death. For the first five rounds against Billy Joe Saunders, he stood and looked at the guy and lost the fight. That is the simple answer.

"I've had 30 years' experience in boxing. I have been in hundreds of title fights, I have got plenty of knowledge and I have seen the worst-case scenarios.

"It is just ironic that Chris Eubank and his father were both in fights where fighters were critically injured. It just shows their ignorance.

"Fighters will always fight to the death. Sometimes that is their undoing. It is down to the trainer with responsibility to realise sometimes you have to live to fight another day."
