Brook Shocked at Porter's Malignaggi Win, Not Devon

By Edward Chaykovsky

Undefeated welterweight contender Kell Brook was not shocked when Shawn Porter unseated Devon Alexander last December for the IBF championship. Brook, who was Alexander's mandatory challenger but saw three scheduled dates fall apart due to injuries, will face Porter on August 16th at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

"I wasn't shocked because anything can happen in boxing. I think there's a blueprint over that with Devon against as many fighters who just smother him, because he likes to keep that distance and be on the back foot.  So, you know, when watching it, I wasn't really too shocked," Brook said.

But when it comes to Porter's last win, a four round destruction of the very durable Paulie Malignaggi earlier this year, Brook was very shocked.

"I remember watching that fight. I didn't expect that and I was definitely shocked after knowing that Malignaggi had been in with Cotto and some other big names, and other big fighters. I was slightly surprised knowing that Shawn Porter knocked Malignaggi out so quickly. It was a little bit of a shock to me," Brook said.

[QUOTE=Ray*;14811762]Those fights were like 6 years ago when Paulie was a bit younger, I don't get shocked when a young hungry fighter destroys an ageing fighter. Because make no mistake about it Paulie is ageing.[/QUOTE] Yeah, people are overrating Porter's…

I predicted that Porter would maul Paulie so I wasn't shocked. Then again, I also wouldn't be shocked if Porter was juiced to the gills

porter did look a bit of a beast in the paulie fight no doubt its probably because he wasn't worried about getting caught on the way in I guess something does sound odd with the testing on the brook fight…

Malignaggi lost to Cotto, Khan, Hatton, Broner, Diaz. And got gift decisions against Ngoudo, Cano, and Ndou II. Was "world champion" off of beating 13 loss Lovemore Ndou. No surprise here whatsoever.

Those fights were like 6 years ago when Paulie was a bit younger, I don't get shocked when a young hungry fighter destroys an ageing fighter. Because make no mistake about it Paulie is ageing.
