    Hi Johnny Nelson nice of you to drop in.

    Harrison has said he wants go to the UK to fight Brook. Would be a simple fight for Hearn to make. Why would Brook turn down that fight and fight Smith instead?

    The same boring but obvious reasons other every other boxer chooses one fight over another? Money, Inferior Risk / Reward ratio etc.

    Well if we believe what ingle was saying Kell for the GGG and Spence fight he sparred Williams, Quigley and Smith he is beyond UK level already at 154. He thinks he doesnt need to go to britosh level from what he seen in sparring.

    Brook is finished man. Even man like Liam Smith will feed on him like a vulture on a carcase.

    You said, YOU, not me, You said "continues to duck.." and then named Harrison. Harrison hasn't been a world champion a month, let that sink in, it's important.

    Harrison won his title on 22nd Dec 2018, less than a month ago so to say "continue to duck.." and exaggerate the situation is ridiculous and that's what I pointed out.

    Anyway, Let's start with Harrison, there was talk of a Charlo rematch, a unification fight with Hurd and then Harrison himself called out Brooks name because he wants that sweet DAZN/Matchroom money (I don't blame him, I'd do the same).

    Now, let's move on to Brook and Hearn, for the last few months they have been trying to make the Khan fight, that isn't happening as of THIS WEEK, it's been rather public, they really pushed for that fight NEXT, so wtf are you talking about?

    Like in the last few weeks they are going to drop everything because some unknown American calls Brook out.. behave yourself.

    Also Brook announced not long ago he was moving back to 147. That's important too, Brook said he wanted to campaign at 147. Why are you completely ignoring that?

    Now, He may well go to or stay at 154 but Brook was certainly boiling himself back down, look at his weight for his last fight.

    Harrison said he would be willing to fight Brook and you are on here calling it a "continuous duck" because Brook and Hearn havent agreed, confirmed and tied up that fight. It was a ridiculous comment you made.


    As for Liam Smith, he signs with Matchroom and somebody then suggests a possible future fight with Brook and you have taken that as FACT, likes it's 100% happening and basically pretending it's been signed already just to have a dig at Brook.

    Nobody has turned anything down and nobody as agreed anything so you are talking absolute cobblers, it's pure speculation so to make statements like the one you made is a joke.



    Oh and if Harrison really wants to fight Brook then why doesn't he make Brook an offer? Or does that only apply to the challenger?

    If that's the case and challengers (or b-sides) have to make the offer and the onus is on them to make fights can you have a word with Wilder, Ortiz and Fury fans and explain they should be making the offers to AJ, Whyte and the rest.

    Cheers.

    Jeez you mesmerized with the dazzling skills of a Gallagher fighter. Have you ever watched Smith? I mean more than 3 fights? Brook on form win comfortably on points of tko.

    Smith is above British level for sure, he's fought for and won world titles.
    Never lost at British level

    Probably watched more boxing in my life before you were even born son. We are talking about the current version of Brook, i take it you didnt see what happened to him in the GGG/Spence fight? His face is hanging off now. Did you see the last Brook fight? Obviously not. He is shot to pieces.

    Relatively easy fight, but not that bad.
    Maybe he takes on someone real in the next one.

    Don't forget Brook looked like **** last time out. He's there to be beaten at the minute IMO and an upset could well happen in 2019.

    I don't see this as an embarrassing duck. I think Brook knows he's not fully committed, or post prime or whatever and is obviously looking for a cash out. I think Hurd and Mungia both have the potential to put some real hurt on him. The type that could affect him for the rest of his life. GGG and Spence put real beatings on him, he could've lost his eyesight. Being so close to the end, I think his health and safety would be playing on his mind.

    Harrison even said he was more than willing to be brooks come back fight and brook didn’t fight him. there is a history of Harrison asking to fight brook so there is at least been a bit of mild ducking going on.
