Audley Harrison was in fantastic shape against David Price and also against David Haye.

As was David Haye against Wladimir Klitschko.

Just because a fighter is in great shape, or the best shape of their life, it doesnt mean they are going to automatically win the fight, and after seeing Brook in a previous fight against Carson Jones, Brook himself admitted preparation was terrible and they didnt give it 100%. Which led to Eddie Hearn questioning whether or not his own fighter "wants it"

He didnt prepare himself, not just physically, but mentally for that fight and it showed IN the fight, he very nearly gave it away DURING the fight.

There is nothing to say that he wont mentally choke again during the fight against Alexander. Considering the size of the fight, location and it being the first real big fight for Brook, and looking at Alexander's experience and resume, Kell Brook being in shape should be taken with a pinch of salt. And who's to say that Devon Alexander isnt in great shape either?

Fights aren't won by how in shape you look, fights are won inside the ring. And we have already seen Kell Brook crumble mentally against an opponent who everyone thought he would breeze before the fight.

Well done Kell! You've done something you SHOULD be doing as a professional fighter, now lets see what you can do inside the RING. Show the world how good you claim you are on the big stage.

Alexander doesn't exactly have a beet belly.

The best Kell Brook beats an averge DA.
The best Devon Alexander beats an average KB.

This fight all comes down to who brings it on the 23rd.

I agree. I honestly think Brook can win if its the A-game he brings, but he'll need a bit extra considering who it is and where its at. He aint just fighting Devon Alexander he is fighting 2 fights. The judges.

The US crowd will try and influence a US win. Judges ARE swayed by that shit. We've seen it a million times. And will see it a million more.

If Brook wants to win this fight, he should end it before it goes to any points. Timing beats speed, Alexander moves A LOT, if Brook is at it, he can stop Alexander in his tracks.

But personally, I can see Alexander doing a Bailey, fighting a boring super conservative cautious fight to take the W on points.

I hope I'm wrong, I'd like to see Brook win this fight but I dont think he punches with enough volume.

TBH i don't even know if Ward's even seen Brook fight he kinda claimed he studies fights yet he's asking for reasons and claiming this is Brook's first big show. It's his first world class test i agree but Brook's had some nice shows to develop on as a headline.

Andre Ward tweeted: "Tell me, what is it about Brooks that you guys like??"

Can someone who's got a twitter account text Ward back saying "Because he's got a passport and he's not a boring fighter like you".

Got to be honest, I've always found Brook pretty tedious. The only "boring" thing about Ward is that he so completely dominates his opponents so that it's not competitive.
