One of the co-hosts of Championship Rounds was spot on with his prediction as Spence Jr. stopped Brook by 11th round TKO. How do the guys look at both fighters now following their classic battle last weekend? For Sean, Spence answered all the questions he had about him going into the fight in resounding fashion. "The biggest questions for Spence heading into the fight with Brook," according to ST. "One could he take a punch? Check. Two, could he weather the storm if faced with any adversity in the fight? Check again. And three, could he live up to all the hype and deliver against an elite level fighter and toughest fight of his young career? Checks all around for Spence." As for Craig he wondered what Brook still had left following the punishment he absorbed not just last week, but his previous fight as well. "Two broken eye sockets in his last two fights," said CCV. "Not sure he (Brook) will ever heal right again. Retirement should strongly be considered at this point for Brook now." Also on this week's edition of Championship Rounds the guys look ahead to this week's light heavyweight championship fight and get excited over the possible big fights that could take place in the next year in that division. "With Stevenson, Ward, Kovalev, and even Joe Smith Jr. you have the potential for some fun fights that could crown the true undisputed champion of the division," said ST. "Sign me up for any combo of any of these fights." One of the biggest names in the sport of boxing Miguel Cotto has a fight coming up and a new promotional company backing him as well.
