Number 9. Kell Brook 36-0-0 (KO 25) – Welterweight
Kell Brook, 30 years old, a resident of Sheffield, Yorkshire, United Kingdom, took former undefeated (and former number 9 in this list) Shawn Porter’s title home. Brook smothered Porter’s all-out aggression and landed crisp counter shots that hurt Porter several times. He’s now hunting for a fight to who’s who in the welterweight division.
A showdown with Amir Khan could be possible. But Amir Khan is gunning for Mayweather or Pacquiao sweepstakes. And he’s seemed hesitant to face Brook for an all-British showdown.
With the retirement of both Pacquiao and Mayweather, Khan left hanging but came back with the huge announcement; fighting Saul Alvarez for the middleweight championship of the world, skipping two weight classes.
It’s understood that we’re not able to see a Khan-Brook showdown anytime soon.
