If indeed Floyd Mayweather is going to retire after his September fight, hopefully with a perfect record of 49 – 0, there is one fighter that stands in the way of greatness.  Yes he needs the win over Pacquiao to achieve greatness, but Pacquiao is not the fighter in question here.  Floyd Mayweathers’ last fight absolutely has to be against none other then Kell Brook.  The senario happening here is very interesting.  Floyd fights Manny on Saturday May 2nd.  The interesting part about this is that Mayweather currently holds TheRing, WBA, & WBC Welterweight titles.  When he defeats Manny Pacquiao on Saturday, which he will do, he will win the WBO Welterweight title to go along with all of his other belts.

Now, here is the million dollar question.  Who holds the only Welterweight title that Mayweather will not have after Saturday?  The answer is…. KELL BROOK.  The super talented Englishman (Brook), is the current holder of the IBF Welterweight championship, which is the only other title that matters.  If Floyd Mayweather decides to fight Kell Brook in his final fight, we will crown a completely undisputed Welterweight Champion, as the winner would then hold every major title in the division.  If Mayweather can dispose of Brook, that would be a hell of a way to end a magnificent career, and cement his legacy as TBE (the best ever).

Kell Brook is a mega talent, and I truly thank Showtime for going international, because not many people in the US have the Sky Sports channel, and Brook is a enormous treat to watch.  Kell Brook has the rare combination of ring IQ, pure boxing ability, speed, and power.  He can take u 12 rounds and embarrass you on the score cards, or he can dispose of you in 3 rounds with a knockout.  Just ask Jo Jo Dan about that.  Brook, like Mayweather, is undefeated and holds a record of 33-0, and would easitly dispose of Amir Khan.  It will be interesting to see if Khans’ loud mouth can get him a fight with Brook or even the winner of Mayweather VS Pacquiao, or if the right thing will happen, and we get the amazing experience of Floyd Mayweather VS Kell Brook for the undisputed welterweight championship.
