Brian Rose Grabs Split Decision Win, Upsets Prince Arron

Brian Rose upset Prince Arron to capture his British light middleweight title by split decision.

Arron, 23, looked hesitant, understandably so given that on the rare occasions he did throw his hands he was generally caught on the counter by Rose.

The champion came into the fight in round five and the middle stages were evenly matched, though he needed to string his punches together and was told by his corner that he needed to win the last four rounds.

But his most dynamic shots came after the bell for the end of round 10, when the fighters had to be separated by the referee, and though Arron shaded the closing stages Rose was a worthy winner.
