I think he'll learn from it and continue to improve. Brook wins this.
i agree completely on the brook-jones fight. if he struggled early and couldnt outbox jones that would be a problem at the higher level, but he didnt. he outboxed jones easily and controled the fight early, but he was in poor shape so he wore down. jones may not be top class but hes solid and if you get tired against a solid fighter you get punished for it.

thats what happened, but like you say he stayed tough throughout. he didnt fold and he showed me more in that fight than any of his previous outings. he showed great boxing skills early, great heart late and he learned a valuable lesson that will serve him in the very near future.

that said i think you underestimate alexander. everyone is going on about what a beast matthysse is, but even if we say he did beat alexander it was a close fight. matthysse had a very hard time with alexander so if hes such a beast you gotta give devons some credit too.

one thing that should be mentioned is when ppl try to box devon he becomes more of a boxer puncher who sits down on his shots and fights much better.

most importnatly devon is world class, hes been in there with much better oposition than brook and won. one of the best chins in all of boxing too, talk about granite. brook is in there with a whole other animal than anything he ever faced before.
