Default Is Jnr Witter a good sparring partner for Brook in preparation for Alexander?

I do worry that Brook doesn’t have any real experience dealing with someone as quick and awkward as Alexander. This fight will get very messy at times, and Brook is going to need to stay calm and not get frustrated.

Would Witter or even McCloskey be good preparation for Brook?

I don't think shadow boxing is the way forward...

Witter could be decent sparring though, not as fast as he used to be but still an awkward bugger.

Both Alexander and Witter are both capable of stinking any venue out, so yes.

DeMarcos Corley could be another good sparring partner.

Alexander is not much of a fighter to be honest, Amir Khan would end him in 6 rounds.

Kell Brook will win via 12 decision or stoppage.

using witter for devon is like using forbes for mayweather. this fight will be won by the better fighter i think. no so much as game plans and this that or the other. the better fighter will win, i think devon has the experience on his side and he has fought the better fighters. id favor devon in this matchup in a close 60-40.
