Kell Brook opens up on video of him snorting white powder being leaked

‘The guy who did it… one day I’ll actually thank him!’: Kell Brook makes shock claim after a video of him snorting white powder was leaked… as the ex-world champion reveals he was in ‘unbelievably dark places’ following his retirement from boxing

  • Kell Brook was filmed snorting white powder at his Sheffield home in January
  • The video was leaked to the press and Brook revealed he would ‘seek help’
  • Brook has claimed he is now in a much better place after the video went public 

Kell Brook has admitted he’s grateful to whoever leaked a video of him snorting white powder as it has helped him turn his life around following his retirement from boxing.

Brook decided to hang up his gloves last year after beating his bitter rival Amir Khan in February, but has revealed that he has struggled to find peace after walking away from the sport.

He was filmed snorting white powder in his Sheffield home in January, and insisted that he would ‘seek help’ after the video went public.

The 36-year-old has opened up on how difficult it has been after retiring, and why fans seeing the video could actually turn out to be a positive in the end.

‘[I was in] unbelievably dark places for a long time. I felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders,’ Brook told Boxing King Media when discussing his reaction to the video making it into the public domain.

Kell Brook has opened up about his struggles after retiring from boxing last year

Brook was a world champion between 2014 and 2017, but has found it difficult to leave boxing behind

‘As a fighter, I keep things to myself, the struggles I’ve had to deal with. The guy who did it [the leak], one day I’ll actually thank him. Because I think God did this for a reason. 

‘Now I’m on the up and I’m feeling amazing. I’m not late, I’m sticking to my schedule, doing my gratitude list, and the list goes on. Without going too much into it, all I can say is I am on the mend.’

The schedule that Brook has put in place has included him returning to the gym to stay in shape amid rumours of a possible return to the ring.

Brook says he’d be willing to end his retirement and fight Conor Benn if offered ‘mega money’

Conor Benn has emerged as a possible opponent for Brook, after the welterweight contender was cleared to fight by the WBC following their investigation into his two failed drugs tests last year.

Brook and Benn have engaged in some back and forth on social media in recent days, with the latter claiming: ‘last time we tried to make the fight he chose retirement instead. Must have been that sparring session…’

Brook has denied he is running from his domestic rival, and confirmed that he would be willing to face Benn if his promoter Eddie Hearn offers ‘mega money’.

The former world champion appears supremely confident that he would deal with Benn despite being out of the ring for over a year, as he warned him ‘I’ll show you, boy’ ahead of their proposed grudge match.
