What do we think of Kell Brook now? Stronger for the gut-check, or did it show flaws?

Can Gavin Rees win a world title?

Proksa vs Barker?

Does Eubank take too many punches? Or is he being matched hard early on?

Which awful opponent will Fury face next?

Your thoughts. :think

I think a bit of both in regards to Brook, he showed a decent chin and showed heart and guts to carry on with a fucked nose and running on empty, but also he did start slowing down sooner than you'd think he should, he didn't show much infighting ability though. But still he wasn't exposed as i'm sure some Americans will say he was.

Rees won't win a world title, I think he's solid Euro level, and 135 isn't swimming with talent atm with a few of the top fighters moving up recently, but Rees isn't quite at that level imo

Didn't watch Eubank, but I will say he is definitely being matched tough early, whether that's a good thing or not remains to be seen, but as I said I can't really comment having not watched the fight

I'd like Fury to have a sink or swim fight against a Chagaev or a Dimitrenko or someone at that kind of level, but it will without a doubt be some overweight slugger, maybe a contender from the 90's who's now in his 40's with a bit of a gut.

Oh and Barker wide against Proksa, I said in the rbr why but I cba so basically Proksa is too wild.

Oh and Brook would dominate Bailey, I give Bailey maybe a 1% chance of landing something big, he doesn't throw enough to take brook into deep waters.
Anyone else surprised ryan aston lost inside the distance?

Didn't know he did, I though he looked a decent fighter against Samuels, how did he lose mate?
