I like brook. Followed his progress for years now. His timing is as good as i have seen. He is very clever and picks his moments. He has good power and what looks like a decent chin (might be tested tonight). The weakness? His defence! Ships a lot of punishment at times which could cost against a puncher like the lad tonight.

He has sorted his personal life out now and deserves the accolades he is getting now he is fully focused.

Hope he wins and eventually meets khan in a battle of britain up north somewhere in a football stadium in a couple of years. Both need to keep winning though.

very good fight but not convinced that brook answered all the questions. he was well tested and came thru but he took some serious punishment when he probably shouldnt have. looked totally fucked at the end which suggests hes being doing less hard graft in training than he should have. good lesson for him.

Just hope thats not Brooks level found already. He'll need at least another gear or two if he's gonna bother any of the top WW's. Gavin Rees looked good earlier on as well.

Yep. Have to agree there. Though the broken nose seemed to fuck him regards his breathing. He could hardly breathe doing his interview afterwards which could have played a big factor in the latter rounds.

He looked vulnerable for the first time. He has a habit of shipping a bit of punishment late on in fights. That needs training out of him.

Tyson fury looked excellent last night. He has really matured over his last 3 fights or so. Still a bit weird though!

From the after fight comments it seems as though brook has been tossing it off during training. That was his toughest fight. Hes shown he can take a shot and come back!


Cant stand fury!!!!
Think david price would beat him....


RE: Fantastic - Peterson beats Amir Khan - drsrhino - 07-08-2012 07:46 AM

Not on fury's last 3 performances he cant.


RE: Fantastic - Peterson beats Amir Khan - chesterhino - 07-08-2012 08:02 AM

Why?! Fury is fighting total bums.....


RE: Fantastic - Peterson beats Amir Khan - drsrhino - 07-08-2012 08:15 AM

And david price is knocking out the klitchkos is he?

The guy fury fought last night took mormeck the distance.

yeah it said more or less directly that brook didnt do the work before the fight, and, it seems they had even talked about it. he wont make that mistake again, or he best not.

I listened to an interview today with hearn and he said that it wasnt a case of him not doing the work in the gym or comitting to the fight it was the nutritional side to it. He said he wasnt eating burgers and chips or anything like that but he really struggled to cut to weight so they knew he would tire later on. Thats probably why his corner was on at him winning the first 6 rounds. He did say it rested with the fighter but also said he and the trainers were to blame for not watching him. He also added that brook has already said that next time he will get the nutritional experts in which was suprising as i just assumed he would have that covered.

Wake up call for brook but one that hearn said he will note. Should be better next time out.
