    This fool waited till the very last minute in till he stepped up against Shawn Porter at 147

    Then got himself obliterated against Spence and GGG

    Then spent the rest of his time calling out Khan

    lmao.

    His momentum was constantly disrupted after he became champion he was out for nearly two years and the state of his leg was just ridiculous to come back from, he then spent the rest of his career chasing the what could have been, I feel sorry for Kell, the talent was always there it was just inactivity bad matchups and bad management that constantly dogged him.
    It’s hard to say how far he could have gone but it should be said how far he went in spite of everything.

    I don’t think there’s a good argument for that. He lost 7-5 plus KD. He did very well. As Porter does against excellent fighters because he himself is very good. But Brook beat Porter in what 2014? That’s so long ago. And he’s been **** since

    Absolutely agree 100%. Personally without the setbacks, I am certain he would have beaten all the welters bar Pacman/Mayweather and possibly Crawford.

    I'm still waiting for him to fight Khan. Then his career is sure to kick off!

    He was badly managed by Warren and then when he finally moved to Hearn they got him the best fight of his career. Unfortunately they didn’t take off from that momentum stateside and talked of fighting the likes of Pac-Man or unifying but instead had 3 dreadful title defenses nobody gave a crap about against donut Dan, gavin, Bizier.
    Eubank jr was offered the ggg fight but declined and Brook jumped at the chance! His biggest mistake of his career imo, he did well to hang with ggg and had some success but in reality had no business fighting at that weight class for the first time against that beast! Those injuries came back to haunt him against spence.

    He should take the crawford fight and then ride off into the sunset. The khan fight people have lost interest and clearly one of them seems to be asking for too much money.

    Not that it has to do anything with this thread, but Kell had the guts to fight GGG when the middleweights were avoiding him. Respect

    Ya, I thought Kell looked good against Triple G until his eye socket went.

    The entire MW division was quaking in fear of GGG when Special K with his elephant-sized British plums jumped up two divisions to face GGG. It took GGG looking human against Special K to imbue Jacobs with the courage to take the Triple G challenge and even then GGG had to bend over backwards and agree to fight him in his backyard and take a pay cut to entice him into the ring even though he was offering Jacobs the once in a lifetime opportunity to win all three of his belts off of him in one fell swoop.

    And it took GGG looking human against Special K and Jacobs to entice Clenelo out of the darkest corner of the chicken coop. Hell, they'd probably still all be duckin' and a cluckin' to this day had Special K not stepped up to the plate.

    Hard to buy you've watched any of them if that's the conclusion you came to to be quite honest. Rjj rampaged through 160 like he was fighting 12 year olds and he probably loses to both Hagler and Monzon. Meanwhile GGGs best win is Danny Jacobs who he arguably lost to
