06/04/2012 Today's Boxing Rant

Will we find out who Kell Brook's next opponant will be before the week is out, it was at the start of the week where Brook had left me playing the guessing game after a promising Tweet regarding the name of his next opponant. Names like Paulie Malignaggi, Marcos Maidana, Devon Alexander where the popular choices for me, but whilst i was busy trying to pick his perfect matchup, Brook found himself in a clash of words with fellow countryman Amir Khan. Three weeks ago promoter Hearn told the world that he would love Brook in the ring with Khan, so would the British public but Khan has a job to do against Peterson and in my opinion is out of Brooks league for now. Brook has since mentioned he has no problem with stepping in the ring with Alexander and what a matchup that would be. I think this would be a good measure for Brook to see where he is amoungst the best Welterweights. Either way and whatever the outcome, as a British fight fan i am excited that we may have a Welterweight World Champion before the summer is out.

Sergio Martinez confirms that he has now signed and agreed a deal to fight Julio Ceaser Chavez jr assuming he beats Andy Lee in June. Firstly i could'nt have been more excited, to have one of the best upcoming Middleweights in world Boxing take on the third best P4P boxer in the game. It's a once in a lifetime shot for Chavez, who i personally think stands no chance against the Argentine but does offer  awkward size and ability, but this lifetime shot is still yet to be confirmed from Chavez. I can only wonder why he has'nt signed for this match yet........second thoughts anyone? I really think Chavez needs to have another couple of fights before meeting with Martinez, i wonder if that KO punch against Paul Williams and Dominance over Matthew Maklin might steer Chavez in another direction for a while, to be honest i think i am just holding out for an all Mexican showdown with Saul Alvarez.
