What made you change your mind on One Time, or do you just not think much of Brook?

Bingo. I mean, I think highly of him as a boxing talent - but after seeing the way he deals with pressure & power against B-level (and that's maybe generous, probably more like C+) Carson Jones there is little doubt in my mind he'd get flattened by a Thurman...let alone someone world class with any pop and grit.

Agreed. Perhaps Brook learned from that and can take it to the next level. I'm thinking Alexander may be his one and only big chance over here. We'll see.

thurman might have a bit too much power, but who would you favour between brook and maidana at 147?

I want to see Brook in with someone else who will pressure him, he didn't seem himself that night but there is nothing to compare it to in order gauge if it was an off night or if that is his limit because it was against arguably the best fighter he has faced.

Thurman has only beaten one decent fighter and is wasn't at welterweight.

i'm not surprised by all the idiots on here, but i am surprised at IB.

Thurman!? Keith thurman!? get the **** out of here! kell would dominate and end it around the mid to late point.

Thurman isn't going places other than the ****ing canvas. the guy WILL be shown up by a decent fighter not too far from now.

****ing Keith thurman. everybody is on some sort of glue or something.

Hey moron, We're talking about Keith ****ing thurman fighting Kell
****ing brook. The same brook who's a british clubfighter who struggled
in his win with american clubfighter carson jones. Keef one time KO'd
former world title holder carlos quintana faster than Cotto did, so i'd
say that trumps anything your limey boyfriend did.
Class is over.

Thurman would need an impressive victory to win me over. an unimpressive UD wont do anything for me against the likes of Kell Brook

I will take the puncher, since the supposedly well rounded boxer has no defense.

Brook is being severely underrated here.

Yes he gassed against Jones and shipped some punishment, but if he's to be believed and has now addressed this issue he'll win a world title at the very least. He's a talented boy.
