Kell Brook’s Betting Outlook vs Khan

Brook is a former IBF welterweight champion who successfully defended the crown three times.

His career trajectory has not been quite the same though since a courageous jump up to middleweight to take on the fearsome Gennady Golovkin.

Kell Brook is looking at this as a high-pressure fight because if he does not get the W, he will have to hang his head the rest of his life after falling to his arch-rival of close to two decades.

This fight is intriguing because Khan is known for dizzying speed, Brook is known for strong timing with heavy punching that underpins his ring generalship, yet this fight is happening many years after first posited.

To what degree of magnitude do each of these men have these same attributes? This is a true 50-50 fight in many regards with that being reflected in how pundits have discussed this fight at various points over the last decade.
