It's a good thing this is a boxing match and not a bodybuilding competition, he looks like shit.

Having a lot of muscle doesn't mean you have great conditioning. In actuality, the bigger the muscles you have the more faster you become tired because all the muscles needs and uses oxygen making you need to breathe faster to pump more blood everywhere. Look at Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier they had no rock hard abs or big chests.

If Brook beats Alexander, I'd go as far to say that he has caused a shock and an upset, purely because Brook aint fought anyone compared to what Alexander has been in with. Brook is the underdog, Brook is the nobody looking to make a name for himself.

If he struggled against Carson Jones, then IMO, this is a step to far, a bit to soon. If Brook had 1 more, maybe 2 more fights against credible opposition and came through with flying colors, I'd be picking Brook in this fight.

Hope you can see where I'm coming from
It doesn't matter what people are saying. I am sure that Kell's team is preparing as hard as they can for this fight. Kell, himself, knows that this is a huge fight for him, so he isn't going to take it easy. Just look at all the shit he's going through to get in shape for this fight. He wouldn't be doing all that work if he didn't think the fight was that important. As long as Brook knows what he needs to do, it doesn't matter what me, you, or anyone else thinks or says on this forum.

One thing in Brook's favour, is that Alexander has only fought 2x at WW. The first was to a overweight Maidana who lacks the neccesary skill set, and against old man Bailey, who refused to do anything in there to even resemble a defending champion, and instead, he lost widely in a total stinker of a fight. I think it's safe to say that at 147, Alexander is relatively untested.

But, again, what anyone says on here means nothing. Brook will train as hard as possible and will try his hardest in the fight.

I like Kell Brook but will warn that Devon Alexander is not to be underestimated at all. He is a quick skillful boxer who can punch with a bit of pop. He has been in there with Lucas Matthyse and Timothy Bradley.
