Kell needs to step it up and fight a top contender, someone like Robert the Ghost Guerrero. This would be a tough meaningful fight, since Guerrero lost to Mayweather on a decision not too long ago. This fight should be a good win and get Kell well in line for a shot at Shawn Porter. Come on Eddie, make it happen!!

Interesting thoughts on Kell's potential opponents. Two names spring to mind when thinking of good fighters maybe the wrong side of their best...Zab Judah and Paulie Malinaggi. Both ex-Khan victims too, so would be a great opportunity for Brook to show what he can do, as well as a good name on his CV too. Failing that, what about Josesito Lopez? Maybe more of a potential banana skin though.

Come on Kell you should have been world champ by now, you have all the tools to blow the division apart, make 2014 your year and finish it off by ending Khans career with a big KO if floyd does not beat you to it , MAKE IT HAPPEN !!!!!!

I don't see how a "warm up fight" would benefit any more than good sparring opponents. For sparring you're in control of all elements, reduce risk of cuts & - most importantly - if it doesn't go your way, the only one there to judge you is yourself. I love watching Kell fight - but the next fight I want to see is for a world title!
