I didn't expect Crolla to be tough enough to withstand the onslaught that Murray brings. Fair play to Crolla though. Spot on performance.

Brook will now fight Porter in 90 days or Porter will have to vacate the title. Brook vs Porter looks a real decent contest. Thats an impressive win vs Malignaggi last night.

Sorry drs posted at same time. Wonder if brook will have to go to the u.s

Porter is very good no mistake & has probably taken the route that brook should have done. If brook get past porter then he would be right up there with the top level & should command some big paydays. Trouble is if porter can take Mannys punishment then brook would have to bide his time During the fight IMO.

mallignaggi aint a big puncher though,, brook beats porter 75% of the time but will need to bring his A game.

Apologies DRS, I meant to say he serves to defend his belt against the best.

Rigondeux is the best and quigg doesn't even mention him when talking about unification fights. All he wants to do is talk about Frampton. Everybody wants to fight kiko martinez because he is shite. The lad last night was a handful a few years back with a full training camp. He has gone backwards since 2009ish and was a late replacement and was obviously not ready for the fight. Its a win for quigg and he looked good doing it but to be honest it meant fuck all.

Porter, as good as he is, is the weakest of the welterweight champions. Brook HAS to go to fight in the U.S. I think its a real 50/50 fight. The only blot on Porters record is a draw with julio diaz, who put khan on his backside before losing narrowly on points. Porter has since beaten diaz on points in the rematch.

It would be a close match. Kell would have to improve his stamina because he fades after 9 or 10 rounds.

Give him the big fights. That is the only way we'll know if Quigg can hack it right at the top.

Im hearing rumours that shawn porter isn't as clean as some people think. Malignaggi is implying that he had 'unexpected' power thqt he has never come across before. He stopped short of saying PED's but it was obvious thats what he meant.
