C. Smith v Eubank/Degale winner and L. Smith v Brook Anfield PPV in the Summer then?
That would be good I think. First fight VERY good whoever won out of Junior and James. Bit of needle if Senior hasn't fallen out with Junior and gets involved in the dialogue. I think Degale is friendly with the Smiths so its just a good fight.
Crawford is going to retire Amir soon and I think the same happens to Brook with Liam. Two retirements making Brook/Khan the one that got away.

I like Smith, but dont like the fight. Egginton has just been banjoed by an unknown African.

If Smith fought Mwakinyo it would have more intrigue.

Are we expecting Smith Brook in the Summer? On a bill with Callum at Anfield?

I didn't realise he'd been stopped in his last one. So Ive changed my mind. Im not keen on the fight. Looks like they'll be getting a TTEE for him a few weeks before he tackles Liam,but even if they do it won't make it a good one.

I think thats pretty obvious Grant. Brook/Khan has died a deaths s o that one is the next best thing. Barring accidents to Brook,which could happen inside or outside the ring, this one is nailed on. I like Sam,but he aint doing anything with Liam.

He should be fighting Brook, another fight Hearn has no interest in making between two of his own
I reckon it might be Brook who is not keen on this.

You are probably right though too. Hearn would prefer the Khan fight, or to sacrafice Brookto build up someone new stateside.

It was reported a few weeks ago that Brook is a free agent. That he was mulling offers from other promoters including one from Khan Promotions.

At the start of the year when Khan signed to face Crawford. Brook did claim he was moving on and looking at fights with Liam Smith, Jeff Horn and Jesse Vargas.

None of those happened. He claimed he wanted Crawford that did not happen either.

He will be back to calling out Khan as usual.

Smith vs Brook would be a good fight.

Cheers. Hadn't heard that Brook was a free agent.

I think that at his best he would've beaten Smith. It would be a hard fight for him though, win or lose, and I just don't know if he wants it enough for that. Not for the kind of rewards the fight will bring anyway.

I had a lot of respect for Liam sticking with Warren, especially when all his brothers made the move to Matchroom. And he was rewarded with a gift-wrapped 'world' championship, a Canelo payday, a further title shot against Munguia...

I know it's still early days, but Eddie has a lot to live up to in terms of getting opportunities for Liam. It has been a very lacklustre 2019.

After being shunted off to Mexico in his last fight he's thrown way down the undercard of the Jacobs/Chavez fight. Eddie's gonna feed him to Jacobs in 2020 isn't he.
