I understand why Kell Brook is apologize and he needs to be very careful with his alleged drug use.
With that being said it is very disheartening to know your so called friends would sell you out to the media for a quick buck. Whoever was recorded and decided to sell the video to the tabloids isn’t a real friend and like someone said, Brook needs to make sure he has better people around him going forward.
In a statement, Brook said that he is dealing with some mental health issues after officially retiring from the sport.
This isn’t uncommon with athletes.
Initially, his manager, Terry Thompson, told The Sun it was “a joke” — but Brook issued a mea culpa over it all on Thursday on his social media pages.
“I messed up,” the 36-year-old said. “I hold my hands up and want to apologize to my family, gym, friends, and fans.”
“It’s no secret that I struggle with mental health and I’m finding retirement hard.”
The British boxer, who won the IBF welterweight title in 2014, added, “I’m actively seeking the help I need to get me on the right path. And again apologize for the hurt and disappointment I’ve caused.”
The 40-3 boxer retired in May 2022 — a few months after knocking out Amir Khan in the 6th round at the AO Arena in Manchester England.
However, Brook would like to return to the ring, according to his promoter Ben Shalom, and was recently called out by middleweight boxer Liam Smith to come out of retirement.
Brook should probably stay retired and he needs to find better ways to spend his time.
The last thing we need to hear is another athlete overdosing or being arrested for their excessive drug use. Go to rehab, get cleaned up and do it for your family and friends who actually care about you.
