Kell Brook: Expect Fireworks, Fight of The Year Candidate
By Edward Chaykovsky
British welterweight contender Kell Brook (32-0) is prepared to make it a dogfight next Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. A career defining opportunity is on the table against IBF welterweight champion Shawn Porter (24-0).
In his last fight, Porter blew away the usually durable Paulie Malignaggi in four rounds. Brook knocked out his last four opponents. The fight who calls himself "The Special One" is anticipating a war of wills with many power punch exchanges.
“Fans can expect fireworks from me next Saturday night. It’s a candidate for Fight of the Year. I believe you have two young, unbeaten fighters with punching ability power going at it. It’s been a long time coming. I’ve always wanted to be a champion and it’s now my time. My dream will come true. So believe you me, I’m going to leave it all in the ring that night,” Brook said.
“It’s been a long time coming for me, fighting for this world title, with all the postponements before. But this is the start for me, fighting at the elite level in America. People always have an opinion; I just want to compete with the best fighters in the world. I’m a fighter. I was born to compete."

I watched video of kell train and it was not convincing, but maybe he fights harder than he trains. I've seen greats work the bags, put on a show. Roberto Duran was amazing on a speed bag, big punchers can…Post a Comment/View More User Comments (12)
