Could he though?

He's somehow got a belt by fighting complete nobodies. He's just extremely marketable.

I think he could just because Arreola is almost always out of shape these days.

yeah don't get me wrong I think he would too, it's just annoying that he's the IBF champ and still hasn't had a meaningful fight.

Garcia fan but he hasn't been answering questions lately.
I like Garcia too, and I think with his father who's basically the opposite of him personality wise, he has a chance at being the most marketable welterweight if he continues to win. I don't mean just the most marketable to PR boxing fans. I think he's generally underrated and I'd love to see him against any of the bigger active names out there.

Looks like Parker-Joshua is going to happen in November.

Tough fight stylistically for Parker, with a significant reach disadvantage, but he is the faster of the two.

GGG v Kell Brook on Sep 10.

Eubanks Jr supposedly backed out.


Good test for GGG or if he actually destroys him then he just fought a welterweight?

Similar to Khan fighting Canelo?

I do think Brook is a bigger welter and he is better than Khan so it's not the same but what do you guys think?


I can kind of see where GGG is coming from since no one wants to fight him and this is probably the biggest name he could get but I am curious why Brook is taking the fight considering there are better fights for him in welter? Just after the $$$?

Don't give us that bullshit propaganda.

Erislandy wanted to fight him.

Ward wanted to fight him.

gennady is in it for the easy dollars. Difference is he didn't come up the hard way first before becoming a businessman unlike manny and Floyd.

These British fighters have been showing big balls lately.

First Amir vs Saul. Now Kell vs gennady

Garcia doesn't have as many fans as he should have.

People are angry that he isn't amazing at anything yet still wins.

He should be good until he fights a Kell Brook or Bradley type

GGG vs. Brook
GGG is the favorite and it seems like a money grab for Brook. But, it could also work in his favor getting him better fights at welter after getting his ass kicked by GGG.

After seeing Kovalev v Chilemba, if Ward is in tip-top shape then Krushers going to be in trouble.

Either way, it's looking like it's going to be a great fight either way.

Kell Brook will get the same treatment as Khan.

Yeah, it's rather disappointing that nobody wants to fight Golovkin, so we're seeing matches like this made.
I wanna say props to Kell Brook, but I also want to shake my head at it.
I won't be buying it.

Wilder TKOs Arreola with a broken right hand and torn bicep (same arm I believe).

He's out the rest of the year now.

Terence Crawford is very, very good

also, Oscar Valdez looks like a superstar
