Anybody ordered the fight for tomorrow? So you think Kell Brook will do it? Does he stand a chance?

Personally I think GGG will win between rounds 7-9. Wear him down with the sheer power he possesses.

I'm not a huge boxing fan so I dont get this whole respect for Brook for taking a fight he can't win. so at the root of it he took it for some money and a bit of praise? If I was a boxer I'd be wanting to win my fights not looking to go up in weight just to get my arse handed to me so people can say well done on doing it.

Apparently Brook was ahead on the cards too but from the offset you could tell it wasn't going the distance. I thought Kells game plan was good but in the 5th he just stayed on the ropes 'rope a dope' style.

It was the right decision to pull him out because of his eye though.

Brooks uppercut was landing most of the fight and his combinations showed that GGG can be beaten, it just needs to be from a massive puncher....kovalev anyone (if GGG would go up to light heavy or meet at super middle)

I'm more of just a casual boxing fan as well but surely it is admirable going up weight divisions to challenge yourself? Especially if you're finding it too easy in your previous weight division.

**** from the judges if that's the case, would only say Brook won the 2nd round.

I thought the same as you. Arguably you could have had it 2-2 at a push but not Brook winning. The crowd can affect the judges I believe and the atmosphere was electric

Tbf it wasn't a case of a quick pay day. It was a huge fight to take and too good of an opportunity to pass up. He didn't accept the fight just to lose. Brook actually turned up and gave Golovkin a good fight, unfortunately for him GGG is just that good. He's getting plaudits for facing someone who the majority of big name fighters out there have avoided. He's ducked for a reason, he's got fists of stone. He broke Kell's eye socket.

I'm not the biggest boxing fan, but definitely tempted to pay to view the Joshua v Klitschko fight if it happens in December.

Molina didn't do anything, just sat on the ropes and didn't even hit AJ.

So yeah, it was an easy fight for AJ
