By Sean McDaniel: WBA light welterweight champion Amir Khan (24-1, 17 KO’s) is likely to ignore the reported huge offer made by Frank Warren to fight unbeaten welterweight contender Kell Brook (23-0, 16 KO’s) and instead Khan will likely take on light welterweight contender Lamont Peterson (28-1-1, 14 KO’s) for his next fight in April in the UK.
By Sean McDaniel: British promoter Frank Warren has reportedly offered WBA light welterweight champion Amir Khan a huge money offer for him to fight his star welterweight Kell Brook next for Khan’s April fight in the UK. Brook recently destroyed Philip Kotey, and looked very good in doing so.
By William Mackay: British promoter Frank Warren has offered World Boxing Association (WBA) light welterweight champion Amir Khan (24-1, 17 KO’s) a fight with upcoming star Kell Brook (23-0, 16 KO’s) for Khan’s next fight in the UK in April. Khan, who recently barely beat Marcos Maidana in a life and death bout last Saturday night. Brook, who’s ranked #1 by the WBO in the welterweight division, stopped Philip Kotey in the 2nd round on the same night and looked very impressive.
By Jon Johns: While Amir Khan defended his WBA light welterweight title against Marcos Maidana last Saturday, another star from Britain was getting one step closer to becoming a World Champion. Kell “Special K” Brook defended his WBO Inter-Continental title against Ghanaian Philip Kotey (21-6). The fight was aired on British pay per view on the same bill as the Khan-Maidana fight.
By Sean McDaniel: Number #1 ranked World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight contender Kell Brook (22-0, 15 KO’s) doesn’t see himself having any problems beating replacement opponent Philip Kotey (21-5-2, 15 KO’s) of Ghana on Saturday night at the Echo Arena, Liverpool, England. Brook, 24, is hoping to get a crack at the WBO title in the near future and could possibly be facing someone like Mike Jones in 2011. But in the meantime, Brook has what appears to be an easy fight against the little known known 28-year-old Kotey on Saturday.
By Dallan o’ Donnell: Kell Brook (22-0, 15 KO’s) takes on Philip Kotey on Saturday for the WBO intercontinental title as part of a huge bill In Liverpool’s Echo Arena. . I can’t see this going past the fifth round if Kell brings his A- game on Saturday night.
By Scott Gilfoid: With his inflated #1 ranking welterweight rankings by the WBO, why is unbeaten Kell Brook (22-0, 15 Ko’s) still being matched soft after six years as a pro and and especially with that kind of ranking. On December 11th, Brook, 24, faces Philip Kotey (21-5-2, 15 KO’s) for a bout at the Echo Arena, in Liverpool, England. Maybe I’m missing something here, but shouldn’t Brook be facing better opposition than this with the kind of ranking he has?
By Shaun Campbell: So Nathan Cleverly is back on Sky Box Office after his last thrilling encounter with Karo Murat, which was thought to be the best fight of the night on The Magnificent 7 bill back in September. After stopping the tough German, Cleverly is now targeting a shot at WBO world champion Juergen Braehmer sometime next year. The talented youngster first has to come through the “WBO European light-heavyweight champion” (whatever that is worth) Alejandro Lakatos. The Spaniard has won 31 fights, and lost 5. But the wins on his record do not really fill anyone with confidence that he will have enough to beat Cleverly.
By Scott Gilfoid: Number #1 ranked WBO welterweight contender Kell Brook (22-0, 15 KO’s) faces what’s supposed to be his toughest opponent yet against 37-year-old Michael Clark (40-5-1, 18 KO’s) on December 11th, a the Echo Arena, in Liverpool, England. And sadly, this may actually be the best fighter that Brook has ever faced and that’s kind of telling, isn’t it? Here we have Brook, a fighter that’s ranked number #1 by the WBO, fighting what’s supposed to be his best opponent of his career in a fighter that is nearly 40-years-old. I’m sorry, but I see this as another case of Brook being matched softly. I still haven’t see Brook face anyone that I would consider even slightly good. And to think Brook is supposed to be fighting for the WBO title against somebody if he beats Clark.
By William Mackay: The December 11th fight card with Nathan Cleverly, Matthew Macklin, James DeGale, Paul Smith, Kell Brook, Frankie Gavin and Tony Ballew looked good to me at first but I’m not really impressed with the fights that I’m seeing the card thus far. Of the fights that have been confirmed for the card – Paul Smith vs. James DeGale, Frankie Gavin vs. Dean Harrison, Nathan Cleverly vs. Alejandro Lakatos and Matthew Macklin vs. Ruben Varon – those bouts don’t really aren’t all that spectacular to me. I like the DeGale-Smith fight, but that’s about it.
