Brook Says He Can Beat Pacquiao, Warren Says "Not Yet"
By Mark Vester
Undefeated British welterweight Kell Brook believes that he's got the style to beat Manny Pacquiao. Brook is close to a shot at Pacquiao's WBO welterweight title. Promoter Frank Warren has been trying to reach an agreement for a WBO final eliminator against unbeaten Mike Jones. The winner would fall in line for Pacquiao. Brook would execute the "Wincobank style" against Pacquiao. Wincobank? That's an area in downtown Sheffield.
"Everyone knows what a great fighter Pacquiao is," Brook told The Independent. "He's a machine. But he's been beaten before and he can be beaten again, and I've got the style to do it. The Wincobank style."
Brook thinks he's ready for a Pacquiao. His promoter doesn't. Frank Warren has asked his young fighter to be patient, advising him to stay patient and wait for his opportunity. He wants Brook to take a few more fights before an opportunity to face Pacquiao.
"Kell isn't ready for Pacquiao yet. I keep telling him he must have a little patience. He's got to sit tight for a while, get a few more decent wins. But he is on the cusp of doing something really big and he will definitely be a world champion," Warren said.

Hmm how about Brook vs Berto? Both undefeated and WWs... I agree, though, it's too early for him to be even contemplating a bout with Pac. A couple of fights first and if he wins those, then he can take…Comment by project xxx1 on 01-02-2011
