    I'm saying now that he does. 151lbs or 152lbs. 100k per lbs isn't enough of a deterant for a fight of this magnitude and money involved.

    Brook was looking big at the public work out. I find it hard to believe he will come in at 149lbs but we'll see.

    He looks in shape and up for this.

    after the Crawford loss I picked khan to win but as this fight has gotten closer I’m going with brook via mid rounds stoppage

    I think it's more likely Khan will pull off that shitbag move.

    Just your normal press conference .
    Khan hints at Brook being gay.
    Brook mentions Khan being caught wanking on webcams.
    Khan accuses Brook of being a racist.
    Then the 2 trainers start shouting.
    All this after Johnny Nelson says Brook should come in at 154 lbs.
    What a world!

    I hope he does and i hope he shatters Khan's jaw with a right hand haymaker.

    I was thinking about this the other day, if you think you've got this fight and then a potential PPV fight with Eubank Jr if you win, then you must be thinking take the financial penalty, come over a few pounds heavy and more healthy, you make that back and more with a Eubank fight.

    He hinted he might in his interview, but it would be reckless if he did. 100K a lb is a lot of money even regardless of what they are getting paid. I can’t see it personally. Kell has been embarrassed in every interview, press conference and face to face so far with Amir making him look stupid (impressive feat by the way.) This is Kell’s last ditch attempt at mind games which I don’t think will work.

    Kell and Amir both did a WBC check weight on Tuesday evening and both weighed in at 154lbs Dom said.

    Eubank way too fresh and big for Brook, especially this version of Brook. Not a fight i'd want to see.

    WBC check weight? What are the wbc doing involved in this non title fight between two shot to pieces Brit level fighters?

    Even with non title fights they have to get weight checked in build up. WBC, WBA & IBF all have different methods of doing it. But both fighters agreed to WBC check weight.

    I think that’s a decent shout, maybe 8,9 rounds for me.
