M. Hatton Thinks Brook Special Enough To Defeat Porter

By Edward Chaykovsky

Matthew Hatton, the younger brother of superstar Ricky Hatton, believes Kell "The Special One" Brook has enough special talent to defeat IBF welterweight champion Shawn Porter on Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. Matthew was beaten by Brook back in March 2012. Matthew was dropped in the fight and lost a wide unanimous decision as Brook did a job on him.

It's a tough job for a fighter to travel over and win on foreign soil, Matthew says Brook has all of the right attributes to pull it off.

"Sometimes you worry about fighters who get a world title shot at the first opportunity," he told Sky Sports. "You worry are they fully prepared? Do they tick all the boxes? For me, Kell ticks all the boxes. He’s ready, he deserves his chance, so let’s see how good he is.

"Kell is a very good fighter. You know he’s up against it with Shawn Porter and that big factor for me is going over to America to beat him. But I believe Kell is a special fighter. I believe he can do it."

I view brook as technique wise probably up there with golovkin/kovalev only better but probably not as ring smart as those guys but he's definately gotten more durable imo he should win this fight but I know the yanks are…

[QUOTE=parrish duke;14849303]I'm not to privy on Kell Brook. He has a strong fan base . Porter has gotten very good over his last 3 fights (Diaz2 / Alexander / Malignaggi) his physique is more sculpted and just looks a lot…
