KELL BROOK has gone from tubby to trim ahead of his biggest fight in years.
In 2019, the Sheffield star ballooned to 15 stone as a number of major contests fell through.

But, as he approaches Saturday night’s clash with Terence Crawford, Brook is in immaculate shape.
Facing the undefeated American at welterweight, he is back in the division he held a world title in for almost three years.
The 34-year-old had to battle back up the ladder after failing in his middleweight step-up bid against Gennady Golovkin in 2016, which was followed by Errol Spence Jr snatching his IBF welterweight belt.
Having gone without a fight for the entirety of 2019, Brook had to drop four stone for February’s return at light-middleweight against Mark DeLuca.
That victory set him on course for a Las Vegas showdown with Crawford, and another challenge to trim the pounds.
Brook weighed in on the 10st 7lb limit at the MGM Grand on Friday.
He said: “People have been writing me off and saying this is an easy fight for Terence.
“But I have taken myself away from my missus, my daughters, all of my family to get ready for this and push myself in training camp.
“I have no excuses. There will be no excuses.
“Terence is getting the best version of me, ever.”
Brook has excised promoter Eddie Hearn, trainer Dominic Ingle and Sky Sports ahead of the fight.
It is an example of the ruthless attitude the former champ has adopted in his quest for a second crown.

He told SunSport in February: “When I first got back I was massive, around 15st.
“I started slowly and made baby steps and slowly picked the pace up.
“I should have boxed in December  but that fell through, the old me would have thrown my toys out of the pram and enjoyed Christmas.
“But this time I trained all the way through and I am so happy because I am in a great position and I feel fantastic.”
