If Alexander comes forward and fights he will feel the power and will back off. Kell will completely shut him down unless he gets caught with something silly.

If Alexander fights smart, it could be a very close and interesting fight.

But I'll go with my heart, I'll go with Brook.

I can't stand Alexander but I think he's going to take this.

Which rounds did you give to Jones, out of interest?

Just because it was close doesn't make it a gift. Nobody actually thinks Carson won the fight bar Carson himself. You talk about the last six rounds as if the first six didn't happen? Brook looked like magic early on in the fight...if he can sustain that performance level over 12, he gives every single active welter (bar Floyd) problems

Surprised Brook is ahead in the voting. Compared to Alexander, he's virtually untested. That experience counts on big nights like this. Not saying Brook will freeze, but he'll be in there with someone who'll be showing things he ain't seen before.

magic. 6 rounds of magic against a Club fighter then proceeds to get thumped like a scared child the rest of the fight. Orale.

Tim Bradley stomps him. Pacquiao kos him. Maidana ends his career. Dudes average at best

Bradley is one of the best fighters in the world. Bradley gave Pacquiao problems.

Brook got bossed around by a club fighter. Bit different level son.

Devon has faced a better quality of opponent and beaten a better quality of opponent. You can say well be got a few gifts. All those were against the best in his division.

Meanwhile Kell Brook got a gift vs a club fighter. Bit different son

If Brook couldnt handle Carson Jones Maidana would kill him. Maidana nearly killed khan. And Devon handled him with relative ease.
DA is nothing special, but Kell Brook is a British hype job.

Alexander UD Brook.

Americans only throw out the hypejob label to discredit fighters they don't like - Calzaghe v Lacy is a perfect example.

If you want hypejobs, look no further than:

Chad Dawson
Kelly Pavlik
Danny Jacobs
Devon Alexander
James Kirkland
Andre Dirrell

All of these guys were made out to be something special, when none of them are. Each time they've stepped up their competition, they've been found out. I bet you are or were fans of these fighters at some point

The whole 'hypejob' label is used as a defence by Americans when people say they're not as good as they think they are. They say oh that guy was a hypejob anyway, '[insert name here] is the real deal, they should fight him'

Once Brook executes Alexander in Devon's backyard, the hypejob term will get thrown around a lot more, I'll look out for your posts after that fight Jeff
Idiotic post.

Kelly Pavlik beat the guy who beat the guy at 160lbs. To date, he has lost to only two fighters: a sure fire first battle HOFer (Hopkins) and a guy presently in the same sentence as Manny Pac and Floyd May for P4Per (Sergio Martinez).

How the **** is that being a "hype job?" When Pavlik had his shit together, he would have annihilated the current crop of Brit MWs.

what a ****ing shit fight we have in prospect here we have uhuhuh Devon who aint afraid to quit and Kell the massive queer that dont like being hit they may just stand and look at each other for 12 rounds dont expect a war here .

when your best win is against someone who barely scrapes into the best 15 welterweights in the world its a wonder he has a title shot at all.

Just reading comments by Alexander's trainer Kevin Cunningham.

Quote:
Kell Brook is a good, solid fighter but he doesn't bring anything to the ring that Devon hasn't already seen. He's not a big puncher, he's not extremely fast and he's not slick. So what's special about this guy?

Can't really argue with anything he says there. Alexander's already faced better in Bradley, and possibly even Matthysse. Going to be a tough night for Brook I think.
