Brook ‘can be world champ’

Have your say

Lovemore N’dou believes unbeaten Sheffeld welterweight Kell Brook is on the brink of winning a World title.

Brook outpointed the South African last Saturday at Hillsborough. N’dou has never been stopped in his 63-fight career but in the late stages of the fight, Brook had the sell-out crowd on their feet as the 39-year-old looked ready to go.

“Kell gave a great performance and I was the first one to walk up to him after the fight and whisper in his ear that he will become World Champion someday,” said N’dou. “It was a great performance from an up-and-coming prospect; better than I expected.

“Kell is very accurate with his power shots. He showed speed, timing, accuracy, ring movement and power. He would have stopped any other fighter on the night but I’m just one of those fighters it’s impossible to stop.”
