Jones Warns Kell Brook: Now There Will Be No Escape

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star

CARSON JONES insists he will not let Kell Brook off the hook again in their rematch on Saturday.

The welterweights clash at Hull’s Craven Park just a year ­after American Jones gave ­Sheffield’s Brook a major fright.

When they fought in Sheffield, Brook suffered a broken nose in the eighth round and had to pull out all the stops to get a majority points decision.

The careers of both men have stuttered since due to injury, so Jones believes they are back to where they were for the first fight and this time he intends to put Brook away.

The 26-year-old Jones said: “I really did have Kell in all kinds of problems in Sheffield, but he got away with it in the end.

“I took four or five rounds to get started, but as soon as I did it was popping. This time I’ll be on him from the start. I know there will be no escape route for him this time – I want a world title shot just as much as he does.”

Jones, who has won 35 of his 47 contests, received an award for Best Overseas Performance for the fight with Brook by the British Boxing Board of Control.

Jones said of that fight: “Everybody keeps making excuses, ­saying that he had stamina ­problems. He didn’t have stam­ina problems – he had a Carson Jones problem.

“I was pressing him, hitting him with clean shots, I broke his nose in the eighth round and from then on it was pretty much my fight.

“I don’t have a problem coming over here. I’ve been to his hometown before, and I’ve been to other people’s backyards and taken home the victory. When it comes down to it, it’s just me and him fighting.

"Whether it’s his hometown or mine, it’s not going to change the outcome.

“He’s never had anybody up in his face before, and he really didn’t know how to react to it. He looked a little scared to me.”

The bout between unbeaten Brook, 27, and Jones is on a bill topped by local Olympic gold hero Luke Campbell, who will make his pro debut against Andy Harris.

Welsh featherweight star Lee Selby takes on Romanian Viorel Simion and there’s a tasty battle for the vacant Commonwealth lightweight title between Hull’s Tommy Coyle and Liverpool’s Derry Mathews.

2012 Olympic bronze medallist ­Anthony Ogogo boxes for the third time in the pro ranks.

He is joined on the ­undercard by Liverpool’s Rocky Fielding, Sheffield’s Curtis Woodhouse, ­Islington’s John ­Ryder and young Hull talents Joel Haigh and Zak Collins

[QUOTE=Light_Speed;13549577]Hmm maybe because the first fight was close and Brook got beat up in the late rounds and looked like he was gonna get TKO'd several times in the fight? Just a wild guess.

Brook HAS to win this fight clearly to be taken seriously at world level. I think he'll do that. Kell has a lot of knockers and Jones is a tough warrior who'll put it all in but I see the…

I can see Jones taking Brook out. Someone that says they fell out of love with boxing is worrying. Jones is up for this and will try to impose himself again on Brook but earlier on. iffy fight.

[QUOTE=Dirk Diggler UK;13548894]Why would anyone apart from you be interested in that fight? Jones is a decent opponent for short notice and a chance to put right what happened in the first fight. Disappointed it's only 10 rounds unless Brook…
