[quote=dublynflya;16477052]I would be astonished if it were Bradley!! That fight will probably never be made.

Didn't mean for his homecoming, just a good fight for the future. He needs at least 2 good fights experience before he steps up to Marquez or Bradley.

I agree with you regarding Brook beating Abregu. I also agree that it is highly unlikely that Abregu would KO Kell.

But Team Brook (Eddie Hearn & Co) are unlikely to put the Golden Goose in a position where it could be slain before it lays at least a couple of golden eggs. Which is why my guess (and that's all it is) is Decarie.

Abregu is ranked 9 by the IBF (13 by Boxrec) he's an inch taller than Kell, has a three inch reach advantage and possesses a 78% KO ratio...

Whereas Decarie is ranked 11 by the IBF (22 by Boxrec) of similar dimensions to Kell, was dropped and comfortably beaten by Abregu and possesses a paltry 28% KO ratio.

Like you, I believe that Kell beats both comfortably. But if you are a promoter, looking for a homecoming opponent for your newly crowned WW Champ (who has a plethora of potential mega-money fights in the pipeline) to look good against, would you really risk all those millions by arranging a voluntary against a guy who has an almost 80% KO ratio?

Bearing in mind it is Fast Eddie we are talking about! the man is notorious for taking the piss when it comes to such matters.. I mean look at the fights he has arranged for Quigg.

Aye Tony, Brook-vs-Bradley would be a great fight.

I just feel that were Kell to win his next two fights, the opponents could be something like

1. Voluntary against a no-danger opponent.

2. Khan.

If Kell wins those, he could easily be in line for a crack at Mayweather, which would take Tim out of the picture.

Were Kell to fight Floyd and lose, then Bradley would definitely be a potential opponent. But that could be two years from now.

Can't see Marquez coming to the UK.

Thurman fight won't happen in his 1st defence. To dangerous a fight which would then scupper chances of Brook v Khan, add in the fact Khan will be fighting on the same bill Hearn will want Brook to shine.

I'd like to see Bundu get a crack at a world title. Although I think Brook beats him, he's bagged himself 2 impressive performances on UK shows and has built a bit of a name for himself here off the back of those wins. Think he's #2 or #3 with the IBF also. Only thing is Hearn doesn't seem keen as US TV is interested in the fight and Bundu isn't a big name in the states.

It will be either Lopez or Rios, I can see it being Rios.
