CARSON JONES is a tough fight, a step up, why did you decide to take it now?

He’s a bigger name [than other possible opponents]. Obviously he lost a split decision to Kell Brook, then Kell Brook beat him. He’s beaten Ben Hall. He’s fought some massive names. He’s had a lot of fights. It’s a real big step up for me and if I go and win this in good fashion, it’ll be put me right out there and put me in to some big fights.

He sets a level doesn’t he?
