Brook vs Spencer Jr: Kell Brook expects Gennady Golovkin to KO Saul Alvarez
Last Updated: 21/05/17 9:32am
Kell Brook is backing former foe Gennady Golovkin to KO rival Saul Alvarez.
The 'Special One' believes the unbeaten middleweight supremo might not be "in his prime", but still expects him to beat 'Canelo' when they finally fight on September 16.
Golovkin moved to 38-0-KO33 when he stopped Brook in five rounds last year, with the IBF welterweight champion back down to his familiar weight to take on Errol Spence Jr, on Sky Sports Box Office.
Brook emerged with great credit but, although he expects Alvarez to do the same, he can only see one winner.
"I think Canelo is in his prime but Golovkin is not in his prime anymore," he told Sky Sports during filming Behind The Ropes.
"I think he's still up there [among the world's best], but with the fight against me and Daniel Jacobs I think there's a blueprint that now they've got in their minds that he can be beaten.
"Triple G might be too strong and too much in his face. I can see a Golovkin knockout."
