Sadly, the truth gets overlooked. Devon is good, but he's hardly unbeatable. A step or two above Lacy, many steps below Mayweather.

No, it doesn't work like that. If Devon wins, then perhaps Brook needs to look at what he did wrong, UK fight fans aren't nearly as fickle as Americans. The only time I've heard British fans say our fighter got beat by an American because he was an unbeatable tour de force was when Hatton lost to Mayweather, and to be fair, Mayweather is the best America has to offer.

Lacy - perfect example. The mini-mike Tyson, loses to Calzaghe, oh ermm he was never anything in the first place.

Dirrell
Michael Grant
Danny Jacobs

Were all the next best fighters on the planet, as soon as they got beat, they were all hypejobs and never anything in the first place

Doesn't matter though, come January 20th Kell Brook will be world champion, bet on it
