Default Re: How far can Brook go?

Kell only looked so bad last time out cos he was ****ed with cutting corners and eating pies or whatever...Broken nose didnt help him either....Rounds 1-6 he boxed superb, great display....7-12 he struggled yeah, got tagged the **** out of by solid punches....He never once looked like going down from a punch, looked like he could fall asleep through exhaustion though.

Brook has something to prove now, which was exactly what he needed IMO, hes been in fights that dont mean much for a good while if we are all honest. Now its time to step up his level...The best can do that.

This is where we start to find out how good Kell Brook can be.

Spot on Migs .

I also had Kell winning one of the final few rounds, so even when he was facing adversity he still managed to grab a round on my card. Props to the lad but lets hope he's learned his lessons.

I expect him to win via stoppage tomorrow.

I do mate, shite odds though....Picking a round is the only real value bet.

Yeah i remember thinking ''onto the next one'' halfway through. He made Jones look so bad that you thought he had it in the bag. It was a great learning curve for him. If he doesn't learn from that then nothing will teach the lad.

I fancy round 6 stoppage.

I did the same!...Even went out the back for 2 mins to close the back garage door!

I reckon rounds 3-5...Kind of edging towards rnd 3. No idea why, just a feeling after the weigh in.

Think Saldivia has been beat every time he has fought outside Argentina so I fancy a TKO early doors.

Especially if Kell steps it up like I hope he does!

Agree with you Migs, I think if Kell gets his range early he could bust this lad up fast. He's dangerous but not great defensively this lad, think Kell will look to keep the pressure on he knows he needs to stop this lad really.

If he can box for 12 rounds they way he boxed for 6 rounds against Jones he'll be a World Champion for a long time.
My thought is can he make p4p nu 1?

He defiantly has the abilities and you got to remember each fight he is fighting better opponents. In the fight with Carson Jones he has never been in that pressure before thats why he felt the pace. He showed he could take a dig and still won the fight. So we will know more about Brook this weekend

Agree,except make him evens with Alexander,who I reckon will win tonight.Also agree that tonight is crucial,this should show us a lot.Kell should stop Saldivia without being in trouble himself if hes going to live up to the best predictions.I think he should have been at this stage 2 years ago,but it is what it is.If successful,like to see him face MIKE Jones,who IMO is better than Carson despite Randall Bailey.A bridge too far could be Tim Bradley.Remember last year when they were saying he was afraid of Amir?The lad is afraid of nobody.And hes proved it.

hes a good fighter but p4p no1? his career has collided with andre ward for 1, who'll tie that up for a while, but id doubt hed make it there even without ward dominating the p4p standings, hes a good fighter but hes not looked brilliant in a while, and hes been at gatekeeper level for ages. i think he could win a belt and hold onto it for a while but p4p dominance is truly elite level stuff

If he can fight like he did in the first 6 rounds of the Jones fight but for 12 rounds, then I think he can go far.
