I always thought that Kell Brook was a good boxer.  Just how good?  I didn’t know for sure.  After his brilliant performance against Shawn Porter, when he won the IBF welterweight title, I was sold.  Brook is a great boxer, and he will no doubt get the big fight.  After last nights total destruction of Jo Jo Dan, I stand by my assessment that he is a great boxer.

Jo Jo Dan came into this fight having won the IBF title eliminator against Kevin Bizier, which is an accomplishment in itself.  Dan grinded out that victory in a split decision, but none the less, he earned his title shot.  Dan simply could not get his offense going what so ever against Kell Brook though.  After a pretty uneventful first round, Brook dropped Dan twice in the second.  Brooks defense was on point as he fired back at Dan with blazing combinations.  Dan seemed to never fully recover from the second round knockdowns, because he lost the third by a landslide.  Then in the fourth, Brook put him down 2 more times, and the second time Dan could not continue.

Brook has made it known that he wants to fight the winner of Mayweather and Pacquiao.  I don’t see that happening quite yet, but it would make for a very interesting fight.  There is also one other fighter that has been calling out Mayweather a lot recently.  His name is Keith “One Time” Thurman, another undefeated champion.  Thurman recently knocked off Robert Guerrero, who was also a Mayweather victim, so imagine this senario.  Kell Brook (34-0, 23KO’s) VS Keith Thurman (25-0, 21 KO’s) with the victor taking on the winner of Mayweather VS Pacquiao.  That is quite fascinating.
