    No I just wiggle my arse til it's clean. I have to do it over and over again. Nobody particularly likes it or shows me any sign of encouragement to keep doing it but I do it repeatedly anyway.

    Imo kells heart isnt in the game
    Until he sorts his head out he will be a shot fighter

    technically he has some skills
    Just mentally he is lacking

    Kell has got to be the most mis-managed fighter in Hearn's stable, and on these shores of recent years. He was built up really well domestically, then got the breakout win against Porter before completely stagnating. He has not one other world class win and that was 5 years ago. I could never have picked him to beat Khan, they were operating in completely different classes of competition, regardless of how good Kell was.

    Still, the late, late Khan / Brook fight should happen and then they can both retire. I'd pay to watch it, despite it meaning nothing else other than bragging rights.

    When Brook won the welterweight world title in LA against Porter, Khan was boxing for the "Silver" or "International" titles. It was almost 5 years until Khan fought for the world welterweight title and he quit.

    Have to agree - poor from his promoter.
    I was responding to a poster that claimed that Khan was fighting at a higher level of competition when Brook was a world champion.

    It's going to be very satisfying seeing Marrero knock Kid Galahad's large and small intestines out of his rectum.

    DeLuca is a real banana peel at this point in Kell's career, much better than his resume would have you believe. He's tough as nails and has a solid skillset, an upset here wouldn't shock me, especially considering Kell will be coming off of a 14 month or so layoff.

    After reading your previous posts on him i watched some vids of him on youtube and he is very solid and appears to have an all round skill set

    Banana skin indeed here for Kell

    Yes, Brook had one massive win - which was the point of my post. Brook went no mark, Porter, no mark, no mark, whilst Khan was boxing Collazo (coming off a KO win over Victor Ortiz), Devon Alexander and Chris Algeri. All three of those would be Brook's second best win!

    Looking forward to this card

    Would also like to see Brook fight Smith , two wins for Brook against DeLuca & Smith could kick start his career big time.

    Sound like it's all setup for a Matchroom scorecard robbery.

    I don’t know much about DeLuca but from what some people have been saying Brook is going to lose this. His heart is only in the Khan fight.

    You claimed they were operating in "different classes of competition". Porter is different class to Collazo, Alexander and Algeri.

    I think I'm past caring about Brook but I'm certainly past caring about Brook Vs Khan.

    Brook was finished after Spence Jr, I just don't see what is there for Brook now at 147 or 154, what "Big" fights are there?

    Pacquiao at absolute best, that's all there is, for example if Brook Vs Pacquiao happened in the U.K. In a Stadium then I can see the logic.

    It would be huge here, Pacquiao fighting in the U.K. would be special and it would be sold out within minutes.

    Other than that, I just don't see a really big fight for Brook out there that would justify a big PPV event and grab the imagination of the British Boxing fans.
