Doctors said the British boxer could have lost his eyesight if he received more punches from GGG
KELL BROOK could have been blinded by Gennady Golovkin’s immense power, says trainer Dominic Ingle.
Ingle – who trains Special K – compared the injuries sustained by Brook as ones you would suffer in a car crash.
Brook will defend his IBF welterweight title against Errol Spence Jr on May 27.

Brook broke his eye socket after his defeat to GGG – after his corner threw in the towel in the fifth round.
And Ingle says his fighter could have lost his eyesight if he had received more punches.
Ingle told Sky Sports: “It’s a common injury you have in car crashes, because your face hits the dashboard and cracks the bone in the front of your face.
“I’ve had one other fighter with that injury a few years back and he said the same thing.
“He said he felt his eye dropping into his socket, so when you hear someone saying that in the corner you think this sounds familiar.
