Brian Rose Targets Zaurbek Baysangurov Title Clash

Brian Rose is hunting a World title clash with WBO light middleweight champion Zaurbek Baysangurov with his showdown live on Sky Sports against Joachim Alcine on April 20 at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool in Betfair’s ‘The New Life of Brian’ has been made for the WBO Inter-Continental title.

Rose meets the former WBA World champion in what he calls his first test at World level, and with the Inter-Continental title on the line, the 28 year old sees the fight as a huge chance to crash into World title reckoning, with the Russian Baysangurov on his radar.

“We've been waiting for this moment for years,” said Rose. “I'm back fighting on Sky and in a proper fight with big things on the horizon.

“Beating Alcine and landing that Inter-Continental belt puts me right in the picture for the big one with Baysangurov and that’s given me even more incentive to win well against Joachim.

“I've got dreams of being a World champion and I never thought I'd be in this position but I am ready for World level and I'll prove that on April 20.”

Rose’s clash with Alcine tops the bill in Lancashire with Lee Selby’s first fight under Eddie Hearn providing the chief support, and Rose’s Blackpool stable mate Scotty Cardle boxing for his first title, taking on Maxi Hughes for the Central Area lightweight belt.

China Clarke defends his English cruiserweight belt against Blackpool’s Matty Askin, while Team GB stars Kal Yafai, Callum Smith and Olympic captain Thomas Stalker continue their exciting pro careers in an exciting line-up.

Tickets for Betfair’s ‘The New Life of Brian’ cost £40 unreserved, £80 Ringside and £150 VIP and are available through www.matchroomboxing.com or by calling 01277 359900.

My guess is Team Baysangurov will or would fight Rose before they fight Andrade. [SIZE="1"][I]Posted from Boxingscene.com App for Android[/I][/SIZE]

The WBO title means bugger all! To gain any credibility Rose would be better off challenging EBU champion Sergey Rabchencko, thus lining up a genuine title fight with the winner os Alverez/Trout!
