After seeing Kell Brook beat Carson Jones again in their rematch Saturday,there’s no doubt  Brook is ready to step in the ring with a big name.Brook is undefeated and has steadily stepped up his competition in the last two years by beating the likes of Carson Jones,Lovemore Ndou,Mathew Hatton and Rafal Jackiewicz.He had a big title fight postponed and finally cancelled against Devon Alexander earlier this year due to injuries by himself,Alexander then himself again.Now after this win against Jones ,Eddie Hearn has said he already has a big name,big fight lined up for September.

Early rumors are that the big name is Shane Mosley.While most fans will look at this fight as Brook taking on an over the hill star no more,it still is the biggest step up Brook has faced.Mosley looked decent in beating Pablo Cesar Cano in Mexico last month.I would pick Brook to beat Mosley and easily if it’s in England.Even if it’s in the United States Brook will box circles around Mosley.Brook has too much speed,accuracy and power to not win this fight.But we still don’t know if it will be Mosley,it’s a rumor at this point.Other names like Marcos Maidana and Victor Ortiz have been mentioned.Those are two dangerous fights for Brook but ones that would pay off alot more than a win over Mosley.A win over Victor Ortiz or Maidana would line Brook up for a title fight against the winner of the Amir Khan vs Devon Alexander title fight.Whoever wins that fight would be perfect to face Brook.Khan would make it a high speed battle of two of the U.K.’s most popular fighters right now and Alexander would be unfinished business in a fight that should have happened already.Brook can definately outbox Maidana like Devon Alexander did but Victor Ortiz might be alot tougher for him.Ortiz has more power and if his heads on straight fight night he is a tough fight to win.Brook can still win but it would be more of a war than Maidana would be because Ortiz is faster and can catch up to Brooks more than Maidana could.Whoever Kell Brook faces next will answer alot of questions about Kell Brook.We will find out if he’s “Special” K or just a hype job that couldn’t reach the next level.
