Re: Who is next for Kell Brook?
What a good fighter Kell Brook was. Big at the weight, awkward, strong, good punch, heart and absolutely superb timing. Lovely smooth style too. A pretty damn glorious career and he only lost (gamely) to the very very best.
He was avoided for years and his career started to stagnate as he was from that slippery Sheffield style that it's so hard to look good against. he didn't go to the Olympics, nor was he a hyped amateur - he did it all the hard way. Kell was absolutely the real thing in the ring.
Funnily enough, he reminds me a bit of Junior Witter (except much better). Witter was a strong, awkward Yorkshire fighter who never got the hype or build up that Ricky Hatton did. No disrespect to Ricky, but I always thought that Witter was stylistically all wrong for him. Retrospect tells us that Ricky may have thought so too.
Khan was the golden boy in terms of the media and the hype he got, but IMO Brook would have defeated any version of Amir at any point of their careers.
Great career champ, hope you have a long and happy retirement. One of our very best welterweights.
