TOUGH, durable and experienced Carson Jones of Oklahoma, 36-10-3 (26) meets Blackpool’s Brian Rose, 26-2-1(8) for the vacant WBC international light-middleweight title on January 23, 2015. Once again the 28-year-old who twice went to war with Kell Brook will fight in the UK, and Jones is ultra-confident he will pick up the win this time.
Q: First of all, how much do you know about Brian Rose and which fights of his have you seen?
Carson Jones: “Honestly, I know next to nothing about the guy, I’ve never heard of him. When I was offered the fight I looked at a couple of videos, but I really don’t know anything about him.”
