When he stopped Kevin McIntyre in a round back in 2008 I said he would be world champ in 2 years tops.I dont think American fans realise Brook turned pro in 2004. Well before most of these fighters at Welterweight. His first world level opponent was Shawn Porter 10 years later 2014. His first 10 years of pro career was wasted. Whilst guys who turned pro after him were earning millions.
One of the most talented uk fighters I ever saw live.
It was 6 years before he fought Porter. When he won that I thought he would have a series of great fights.
He got stabbed, fought a lot of nothing fights then rolled the dice against GGG because he was desperate. Then stupidly fight Spence. Then wasted years chasing Khan.
Such a waste of talent.
