Default Re: why are we not producing any solid 140lb & 147lb fighters?

Brook is in a good position to be a player at 147, he's got his hands full against Alexander though, its a big test, for somebody who is virtually un tested at that level, because Carson Jones is shite, lets not pull any punches there!

The excuse for that performance was lack of top class prep! its viable, naive or not you have to listen to a man when he says, "my preparation was amateur like" but never the less Carson is B level, Alexander is an accomplished top class amateur who's had ups and downs as a top pro, but he's a world champion, and has fought much much tougher guys than Brook

Its a big ask for Brook and we'll get the answers on the night
