Kell Brook vs. Errol Spence – Atlas predicts KO for “The Truth”

Errol Spence Jr. - Errol Spence Jr.

ESPN commentator Teddy Atlas is picking unbeaten Errol “The Truth” Spence Jr. to deal IBF welterweight champion Kell “Special K” Brook (36-1, 25 KOs) his second defeat of his career on May 27 at Bramall Lane in Sheffield, England.

Kell Brook-Errol Spence promises to headline a stacked card in Sheffield on May 27

Errol Spence Jr. - Errol Spence Jr.

Left-Hook Lounge Mailbag: Golovkin, Canelo, & Brook v Spence

Errol Spence Jr. - Errol Spence Jr.

Eric M. (Bronx, NYC): Oscar De la Hoya said that he will take his offer off the table and change it for a potential clash between Canelo and Golovkin. Considering that GGG just won against Jacobs, why does that make sense if they truly want the fight?

Vito W.: I’m not quite sure why, but there’s a popular consensus out there that Oscar’s move was the wrong one. Personally, I think any other promoter in the sport would have made the same move if given the same set of circumstances. When Goldenboy Promotions extended the offer to Golovkin before, I felt it was a bit generous, considering that it was leaps and bounds above anything Golovkin could land anywhere else. Still, they justified the deal based on the growing pulse in the sport around his name. Not results. Simply the ‘buzz’. There was nothing in his resume that earned him a guarantee on the $10M+ level at any previous point.
