Alexander isn't that much quicker. Quicker hands probably, yes, and Brook could struggle with that along with Alexander's rugged style. Luckily for him, Alexander doesn't hit that hard. Brook's got a good jab and straight right, and throws nice combinations, but he's easy to hit and I'm a bit skeptical about how much his stamina has improved since the Jones fight. I Could see him fade down the stretch, especially if he tries to match Alexander's workrate, which he will have to if he's serious about winning, as I don't see him having the power to knock Alexander out. He seems a little one dimensional to me, and I don't see him being able to change to another gameplan if what he's doing initially isn't effective.

I think Alexander will outwork and out-think Brook to a decision win.
