Devon Alexander: Amir Khan is Better Than Kell Brook
By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes
IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander considers Amir Khan (27-3, 19KOs) to be a better fighter than his domestic rival Kell Brook (29-0, 19KOs). Alexander is scheduled to defend his title against Brook, the IBF's mandatory challenger. Their fight was postponed twice due to injuries and a new date will be finalized shortly. Khan and Brook are heated rivals in the UK and there is a lot of money at stake if Brook captures a world title and fights Khan on British soil.
"Amir Khan, he has the better skills and the better smarts. He fought the better opponents, the better oppossition. And I saw him handle them well. Don't get me wrong, Kell Brook is a good fighter, he's a solid fighter.....an up and coming fighter. You guys think he's special, I don't. There is nothing special that I see about him," Alexander said.
Khan is more proven, but that doesn't make him the better fighter imho. Let's see how Brook handles his test first.Comment by boxheadbox on 02-19-2013
