Default Cox wants Brook

Quote:
Hot prospect Jamie Cox says he's tight on the heels of British welterweight champion Kell Brook.

Cox, who won gold at the 2006 Commonwealth Games, makes his 14th professional appearance on February 13 at Wembley Arena.

And the Swindon hotshot, who has remained unbeaten since turning professional in 2007, says he wants to challenge Brook by the end of the year.

"All I hear about at the moment is how good Brook is," said the 23-year-old.

"He's a decent fighter but I'm itching to show exactly what I can do.

"I've been chasing Brook ever since he won the British title in 2008, and I'm just hoping that I get the chance to expose him while he's still got the belt.

"If not then I'll have to go after him when he's got to world level, but whatever happens, he's a man I badly want to face.

"I know just how to beat him and I'm going to keep on asking my promoter Frank ****** for the chance to fight him until he gives it to me."

Cox has blitzed eight of his 13 victims, and believes that 2010 will see him make significant strides forward.

"I want to be a championship fighter by the end of the year, whether it's Brook in the opposite corner of someone else," he said.

"I feel ready to make that step up in class and fight for the English or British title.

"There's some good lads at welterweight at the moment, and if the fight with Brook doesn't come off then I'd fancy a crack at anyone else in the division."

Cox is a good fighter, very talented but has some issues with composure it seems. Got really frustrated in the Lloyd fight. Hopefully he gets a decent opponent on the Wembley card.

Pretty much sums it up ishy. Talented fighter with discipline issues in the ring, he can't seem to stick to a gameplan as was evidenced in the Lloyd fight. Would be a good scrap though, hopefully it happens in the not too distant future.

Brooks a good fighter who needs to iron out a few flaws. Cox just looks like one of those young ' prospects ' who swing wildly and get caught way too much.

Brook looks class at domestic level and Cox looks a great prospect. They are probably pretty far off fighting each other though. Cox needs to aim for guys like Lomax and Watson or even McIntyre and Brook should be fighting Euro level guys this year.

Personally, I think it would be an easy win for Brook - I see him winning within 4 rounds. Cox needs to fight some of the top 10 fighters in the division first before taking on Brook IMO (I mooted a fight against Vassell last week), he just isn't refined enough yet.

What he said

Think it was evident from the Lloyd fight that Cox wasn't yet ready for Brook, someone like a Lomax would be a good fight for him or Vassell yeah, he's still only young.
