Kell Brook was in the US this past weekend to watch WBO welterweight world champion and pound for pound star Terence Crawford wipe out long time rival of his Amir Khan inside six rounds.
The bout came to a frustrating ending as an accidental low blow was landed on Khan which then forced him to withdraw himself from the bout.
An action that resulted in the dismay of the onlooking crowd and audience watching on TV around the world.
Backstage Brook ran into Crawford’s sister who as one would expect told him passionately who she thought would win in a fight between him and her brother ‘Bud’ Crawford:

It’s hard to see how Brook, as good a fighter that he is, would be able to beat a prime Crawford at this late stage of his career.
Kell Brook like Khan has bravely gone up and down the weights and suffered some heavy losses as a consequence.
Notably to middleweight knockout artist Gennady Golovkin who many feel Brook has not been the same since he fought.
Brook relinquished his IBF welterweight title in recent years to Crawford rival Errol Spence.
Perhaps the logical fights to be made would be Brook vs Khan and Spence vs Crawford.
Boxing seldom operates off of logic and common sense however.
