can't wait for this fight.

Spence Jr. is the truth though, I think he'll KO Brook. Spence is laser sharp with devastating power.. People going to keep ducking him after this fight.

Errol spence is good and has power but I think kell brook also has a good chin and maybe able to take some of the shots. But I do feel errol spence would just overwhelm him and win the fight. But I'm not counting kell brook out cos he can box and if error spence comes aggressive, he maybe be outboxed and prob lose like shawn porter even if it's by means of holding alot.

ya Brook is legit af.. I just think spence is on another level. He'll probably make Brook look bad IMHO. Spence isn't going to just stand there like GGG - where Brook did great against that style. Spence is going to move and hit him with lightning fast counters w/ serious power, then move out. Spence will get aggressive when Brook feels a shot, then he'll move out.. He's very patient.

seems like there's a ton of patient fighters out there now.. I love it. Crawford/Lomachanko/Spence/GGG/Canelo etc.

what a fight.. damn!!!!

seifullaah73 you see it?





spoiler:

Spence didn't even look sharp either.. He started out rusty, got sharper as the fight went on. His power is legit. If he touches you, damage. And man you just have to love his vicious body attack. He is committed to destroying the body, love it. I think that's what really did Brook in, he just couldn't handle some of those body shots, which had him dropping his hands alot more in the later rounds & Spence was able to land some uncontested shots. Then obviously that eye injury/accumulated damage just did him in. Brook is a beast & has a ton of heart, but you can see Spence is on another level.

Absolutely love UK fans, so much energy.

Yeh I saw it. Was a little busy.

But man it was an amazing fight. Kell brook had a good game plan in my opinion. Don't let errol spence get into his comfort zone and that's when errol starts to land some deadly combinations and start drilling, so kell brook would hit and box and counter but tie him up to not let errol be comfortable. He was doing really well. At first kell brook was doing good and just testing him out and after that all the way up to round 6-7. Kell brook was winning those rounds. Majority of them. 7-4 or 6-3. Then later on kell brook started to get tired, I think the weight played a role to it as well as the body shots, because kell had to come down in weight it may have affected him, by some amount. Errol spence is very accurate and one thing I didn't like about kell brook is his defence, he would rely on holding but sometimes that would cause him to lean in and get hit and also when moving side to side he makes himself open to shots. Errol spence once he is in his comfort zone he starts drilling and spence has quick combinations, power and good foot movement. So when kell was tired errol spence would easily pick him apart. After round 8 he was done. That golovkin fight destroyed him like pacquiao did to margarito, he broke his eye socket again. Kell brook has a good heart even when losing and hit spence with some good shots. I think if kell had maintained his game plan and did wat he did up to round 5, he would have won. but he just started tiring out.

The british commentators at the end were harsh sayng that he shouldn't have quit like that, especially tony bellew. Great fight but at the end that knee that kell brook took kind of fizzled spence's celebration.

gg to spence, he is the truth but will need to improve where he went wrong in the first few rounds, i think spence just understimated brooks and tasted some brownies along the way :p. He needs to tighten up his defence and hit and guard. Kell brook was good in his counter punching too.

EDIT: kell brook actually broke the other eye socket, rip, spence has power and did the same damage golovkin did to kell brooks, which was mostly due to spence's accuracy but also kell's lack of defence he would rely on his counter punch as his defence. If you box spence and move, I feel spence finds it difficult and that's why I would like to see errol box more.

damn he broke his other eye socket? RIP :/

Yeah Brook taking a knew was nothing to be ashamed of, especially considering his eye was broken.. If he took a knee, he was in some serious pain. He's got heart.



Also one thing I love about Spence, he's calling out Thurman... Dude wants to fight the best ASAP. People have been ducking Spence for a while, expectedly because of the money.. but no excuse now.
