Carson Jones Hoping For A Repeat Performance

Carson Jones will be hoping for a repeat performance when he faces former world title challenger Brian Rose this Saturday in Hull. Jones who is remembered by some for giving IBF World Champion Kell Brook the toughest fight of his career so far, caused a big upset when he stopped Rose in the first round earlier this year.

At the time questions were raised about how much Rose had left in the tank, after the beating he took at the hands of Demetrius Andrade, but the Blackpool man has shown fighting spirit by getting back in there with Jones straight away. However the American is confident of repeating the job, and didn’t speak to kindly about his opponent.

“I know I will stop him again,” said Jones. “I don’t know what round but it’s going to come. He wasn’t a threat in the first fight and he won’t be on Saturday. He’s a decent fighter but he won’t trouble me.

“What will Brian do after I beat him again? That’s up to him, it’s not my concern. I know how it feels to lose and I wouldn’t want anyone to give up on pursuing their dreams. But I don’t think he is cut out for the top.

“Maybe the fight could have carried on but that’s not down to me, that’s the referees job and he did what he thought was right.

“My daughter punches harder than he does. He caught me and I was a little stunned, but not hurt. I always start slow. He doesn’t have big punching power so he wasn’t going to be able to finish me off, but I knew I had to jump on him early when I hurt him in order to catch him when he was wobbling.

“If it was stopped early then it was stopped early for me too because I would have knocked his head off in the rest of the round.

“I think he’ll be the same fighter. He thinks his weight was an issue in the first fight but it doesn’t really make that much difference; he still won’t be able to punch. He’ll be the same person, not changed at all.”
