Kenny Porter, father and trainer of IBF welterweight champion Shawn Porter (25-0), says unbeaten challenger Kell Brook (32-0) has never faced high caliber competition. Porter will defend his title against Brook on August 16th from the StubHub Center in Carson, California.  

Kenny says his son has faced, and beaten, a world class level of competition, and Brook has beaten fighters who are more suited for the domestic level. When they step into the ring, Kenny predicts his son will pound Brook right back to the domestic level.

“[Julio] Diaz was a two-time world champion, Devon [Alexander] was a two-time world champion, Paulie [Malignaggi] was a two-time world champion in different weight classes. Brook doesn’t have the resume of those guys. Not that Shawn made it look easy against those guys, but he pretty much dominated those fights. This is another level stepping up for Brook and he has to climb up to us. Once he tries to get up to us, Shawn will kick him right back down, that’s just what he does,” Kenny said.

Interesting fight. I like it when guys who have been fighting bums at home all of a sudden have to fight for a living. Brook has power so they say. Brook has good timing they claim. August 16th is coming and we will know for a fact if his timing works on someone with a pulse. We will see if that ...

cant really argue with the points made still think / hope kell can pull it off brook has enough pop to get fighters respect so don't expect porter to be jumping in as soon as he's tagged should be a good scrap anyway :boxing:
