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 ****e, 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
