Sheffield's Kell Brook is predicting another Manny Pacquiao win when the Philippine sensation collides with 'Sugar' Shane Mosley at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas later tonight. 'Pac Man' makes the second defence of the WBO welterweight belt he won from Miguel Cotto in November 2009; Shane is hoping to put a recent run of poor form behind him to upset the oddsmakers. The 39-year-old Californian bucked the form guide in January 2009 when brutally stopping Antonio Margarito in nine, leading Brook to give him the slenderest of chances going into this win or bust contest.
"I'm going for Manny Pacquiao in that one. He is non-stop, every fight he seems to be getting better and I think Mosley is getting a little over-the-hill but he has got a puncher's chance - I'll be staying up late to watch it," enthused the 25-year-old when speaking to Sky Sports .
Kell takes on Lovemore N'dou in Sheffield on June 25th. 'Special K' believes that a punctuation win over the teak tough African could set him on the path to world titles. "Yeah, definitely, Eddie [Hearn] and the [Matchroom] team are pushing for a world title - I'm more than ready. I can't wait to get in on June 25th in Sheffield. I want that world title very, very soon," insisted the 23-0 (16) stylist.
