FANS GRASP THE ‘HAND OF KELL’

THE support for Kell Brook is clear for all to see as he stands in front of a mural containing thousands of Tweets from his fans, backing him to defeat Hector Saldivia at the Betfair sponsored ‘This Is It’ show in Sheffield on Saturday.

Earlier in the week as the welterweight star prepared to take on his Argentinian rival, the 26-year-old launched an appeal for his followers to send him messages of support via Twitter, as the nation seeks payback for Maradona’s famous ‘Hand of God’ in 1986.

Thousands of boxing fans submitted their messages using the hash tag #HandOfKell, with the best ones appearing on a limited edition pair of boxing gloves.
