Kell Brook seems to be perpetually treading water just below the world title level and he has another tune-up bout against unknown Mexican Alvaro Robles in Liverpool.

Robles has never fought outside of Mexico but his record shows that he won the Mexico welterweight title last year. Although that is an achievement this is a huge step up in class and the visitor has already been stopped twice in his career - although both times he lasted until round 8 against pretty big punchers.

Robles' highlights show him to be a stocky, muscular opponent and he has a good ko record, so Brook must be careful, however the Brit has shown himself to be rugged and his fast starts should be enough to overwhelm his opponent.

It seems very likely that Brook will stop Robles but in which round is anyone's guess - it will depend on a lot of factors: the condition and attitude the men turn up with, Robles' ability to connect with Brook, how Robles can deal with Brook's body shots and so on. With such short odds on a Brook stoppage win, betting on this one is worth avoiding.
