Might have a cheeky fiver on Brook.

He is easily Crawford's best opponent at WW, had lots of notice, can rehydrate after weigh in to as much as he likes, and has nothing to lose

Brook is finished mate, this is a cash out.

On the other hand, he's 9-1 and I think you can make a case to back just about anyone at that price when there's only 2 possible outcomes.

Brook is legitimately shot to bits mate. He wouldn't have beaten Crawford on his best day. I wouldn't be shocked if Bud wins inside six rounds to be honest.

Teofimo Lopez and Gervonta Davies getting into war of words.  Could be a great fight down the line, fancy Lopez if they do though.

I was beginning to think all these war of words aren't as real as they seem.  ;D

Then Khan comes out in support of Brook and my fears are put to rest.

As you say though Lopez v Tank what a fight that would be. I genuinely could make case for either fighter in that contest.

One thing does need to be said: in the post-Benitez era, there was media-led clamour (but also some politicking going on at the club) to make the club more English; the idea being that the club had lost the very essence of what it means to be ‘Liverpool’. Guillem Ballague 18/11/10

"War of words" in boxing is code for "hype up a potential fight" WWF style.  ;D There's very few legit animosity left in boxing.

Wouldnt be surprised if he was locked in your basement  ;D

Last I read he tried opening some big wedding venue that cost way more than he thought so you never know he could be in need of some quick cash, Fordy your dreams could come true, mate.

Interesting but I'll believe it when I see it!

This fight has the stench of Floyd v Khan about it.  Callum playing the part of Khan by putting his career on hold for a megafight that's never going to happen.

He's semi-retired at this point.

I'm going for Brook tomorrow, he'll be close to 170 come the fight.

I'm not that intelligent though. Help me.

Serious answer now, Does he have a chance? Sure all boxers have a chance to either land one and KO their opponent.  But Crawford is too crafty, too skillful for Brook. Kell's chance might be to go for a big haymaker punch.

He's not gaining 23 pounds after the weigh in FFS. Even if he's 160-165, there's every chance dehydrating himself to such an extent weakens him. He's years past his best and he has ONE win worth a damn in his career.

:D

Who has Brook ever KOd worth noting? If he wins it's as big a shock as I've seen in many years. Far bigger than Ruiz vs AJ.

Crawford can start slow so Brook could try to bum rush him but he isn't fighting Jo Jo Dan.

In answer to your question: He has a chance, just not a very good one.

Kell will do well to get this to points.

If he does the above he might his ultimate cash out fight with Khan.

Going by Khan sweet talking in the week he might have the same idea.

The reality is both are way past their best and it really is the only money fight left for them even though its 4 years too late.

Crawford v Spence is the one id like to see and I tip Crawford to beat him.

Loads of big talk from Brook this week, says he's going to do to Crawford what Calzaghe did to Lacey ;D

Reality is he has no chance. Lomachenko v Crolla level mosmatch. Although the odds are so good that I might have a silly punt on Brook in any case.

Brook has exactly one live opponent on his CV and that was 6 years ago. Since then he has had his skull fractured twice and lost to Michael Zerafa in my opinion. He might come in big and try to make it a shootout but he'll take too many shots and get stopped late.

Watched the weigh in last night & Andre Ward was saying what great shape Brook looked in. Just watching an interview that him & Crawford did with Max Kellerman afterwards. Kell looks weight drained to me. I wish him well but think Bud will have too much for him.

He hasn't made 147 for a long time. And he was struggling with it then.

I thought the same, weight drained. Shame it’s not available on tv as it will probably be a good watch while it lasts, but if he is drained at the weight I’m not sure it’ll last 6 rounds
