Ryan Rhodes: Brook Will Stop Porter in Ten or Eleven

By Edward Chaykovsky

British veteran Ryan Rhodes expects the early rounds to be tough for mandatory challenger Kell Brook (32-0, 22KOs), but eventually he sees his countryman breaking Shawn Porter (24-0- 15KOs) down and putting him away to capture the IBF welterweight crown at the StubHub Center in Carson, Califoria.

"It is going to be a tough, tough four or five rounds for Kell. Porter will be sharp and strong and I've seen videos of him and that head movement. The way he comes on does make him look like a mini Mike Tyson! Kell has to stay behind that jab - which is one of the best in the business - and then after that Porter will start slowing down. I think Kell can't afford to let it go the distance, so I am going for Round 10 or 11," Rhodes said to Sky Sports.

It'd be easier to give a list of British fighters/promoters/pundits that think Porter will win. Khan thinks Porter will edge it Gavin Frank Warren Anthony Fowler Jim Watt Spencer Fearon

I might be wrong but didn't he break hattons nose with a jab. He will have to weather a storm though. Big step up for him, he should have been fighting a better class of opponent before this. Not sure…
