Kell Brook Not Worried About a Robbery in Porter Fight

By Edward Chaykovsky

Undefeated welterweight contender Kell Brook (32-0, 22KOs) is less than two weeks away from his big shot, a mandatory crack at IBF champion Shawn Porter (24-0-1, 15KOs) on August 16th at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

While Brook admits that he's thought about the possibility of a robbery if the contest reaches the scorecards, he's not overly concerned. Brook's promoter, Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport, is not worried either - because he expects his fighter to win by knockout in the second half of the contest.

"Yes, of course, it goes through your mind, but I think the entire world is going to be watching. It's a hard division, and to win I have to be winning clearly, so all the world's going to see it. Obviously, they're going to remind me, I think, in my own country but I think, in this fight, it's going to be so clear who the winner is there's not going to be no doubt," Brook said.

If brooks can handle Porter new found power then I say he can beat Porter quite easily. He is the better boxer and has decent pop of his own, however the Porter that beat up Paulie I think KO's Brook.
