Kell Brook signs the Glove you can win
Kell Brook is now one step closer to the WBA world title after beating Poland’s Rafal Jackiewicz last Saturday night.
To celebrate, Scotts Menswear is offering fans the opportunity to win one signed glove from Special K himself, the brand ambassador for Scotts.
The Sheffield-born fighter is on top of the world with a faultless record of 25 wins and is the face of Scotts’ newest advertising campaign to highlight the excellent brands and product available to men who also want to look and feel like a true champion.
Asked about what he sees as his biggest future challenges, the 25-year-old star said: “Whoever has that world title belt, they’re not gonna give it me and I’m gonna take it off them. It’s gonna be one hell of a fight so I think that will be the biggest challenge.”
The new scotts Outfitter featuring Kell Brook boasts quality and masculine designs not unlike Kell, and includes top brands like Lacoste, Adidas Originals, Denham, Pretty Green, EA7, Fred Perry and The Duffer of St. George to name just a few.
Like all athletes, Brook knows how important it is to keep his eye on the prize; his fans will undoubtedly be keeping their eyes on this fantastic prize, too: a glove signed by the man himself.
Participants are required to answer a question that will be revealed on the website at scottsmenswear.com/competitions within the next few days, with a closing date for the receipt of entries on November 11th, 2011.
Alan Hodgkiss, managing director for scotts Menswear, commented: “We are proud to announce Kell Brook as the face of our new campaign. This extraordinarily talented boxer personifies our brand: gritty, masculine style for men who know what they want.
