Abstract

Now if you’re not a boxing fan you may not be familiar with Brook but he’s the first British boxer in 28 years to win a world title in the US from an unbeaten American fighter, Shawn “Showtime” Porter.

Brook’s victory was the culmination of 20 years of hard work and support – and of course a sprinkling of science courtesy of his team from Sheffield Hallam University. I’ve been Brook’s sports scientist for two years.
