WILL BROOK SHINE IN SHOWCASE FIGHT?
Las Vegas, NV- IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook(34-0, 23 Kos) isn’t facing the most formidable foe in Frankie Gavin (22-1, 13 KOs) on Saturday, from the O2 Arena in London. However Gavin is a pretty good domestic fighter. A former amateur world champion, Britains first to capture that feat, unfortunately hasn’t fought the level of Brook as a professional. If Brook is to become the superstar outside of the UK, he needs to win impressively. Considering his rival countryman Amir Khan faces Chris Algieri tonight and a potential domestic super fight looms in the near future, Kell can’t afford to slip up here. Both Brook and Khan are heavy favorites this weekend. This will be the Brits second fight since a knife attack in Spain last year left his leg severely injured.
