    It is very telling that it'll be Brook's second best win.

    Brook looks finished to me, I honestly think he'd lose to Khan.

    Unless it gets announced in the next 1/2 weeks it will not happen in April. He has just had a new baby 2 weeks ago and won't be leaving to go to Fuetuventura soon. I see him on the AJ undercard in May/June or late april/may.

    Absolutely. Kell is shot to smithereens to my measured eye.

    Vargas beats the living crap out of him and Dom ingle replacement chucks in the towel late.

    Kahan immediately signs to fight brook.

    your measured eyes, shot to smithereens? Shows what you know about boxing. You need to see more than 1 fight to see a declining fighter. His sparring before the fight was spot on. Bad night in the office, we need to see him in the next fight before we can judge, but for sure i think he has declined a little but its hard to judge after such a off night and 1 fight. We dont get access to all his training/sparring so he would know and his trainer.

    It does make me laugh when everyone says Brook is finished after one bad fight. He has only ever lost when fighting the lb for lb best so I see him beating Vargas and moving on to a world title fight.

    Brook is a shot fighter. I’ve followed his career closer than most, this isn’t based on one fight the signs have been there a long time. Vargas beats him up at this point.

    For reference I said the WBSS would retire groves when the tourney was announced and received similar responses from the hard of thinking then too.

    I have developed an eye for a shot fighter over the years. Carl Frampton is another.

    I too have followed Brook very closely and been to a lot of his fights from the early days up to now. I think it's slightly unfair to call him a shot fighter. I agree he is probably getting to the end of his career however I still think he has a few more miles left. His last fight was poor but he was going through a transition stage changing trainers and in his personal life he had his pregnant wife to think about. I don't think one bad fight defines a fighter being shot and I think people should give him another chance.

    Still think Brook wins and easily.

    Vargas is ok but Brook is still top tier and too strong at 154

    No, but to early to say he is shot, need to see more than 1 fight to judge. I think the weight is a biggest issue with Kell not necessary the skills.
