Kell Brook, Carson Jones Face Off: War of Words Eruption

Kell Brook has branded his July 7 showdown with highly-ranked American Carson Jones as the last stepping stone to a long-awaited world title shot.

The unbeaten Sheffield welterweight has been on the verge of a challenge for global honours for over a year as he tries to make a final push to the front of the queue.

He is currently riding the crest of a wave having established himself as a box office star in his native Sheffield. After outclassing domestic rival Matthew Hatton earlier this year he now focuses on manoeuvring himself directly towards a world title opportunity, taking on a fighter ranked third with the IBF.

Brook, rated fifth by that body, then hopes to fight the winner of June's clash between Mike Jones and Randall Bailey for the vacant title.

The 26-year-old told Press Association Sport: "It's a big fight. Carson Jones is ranked higher than me and the winner basically goes on to fight for the world title against the winner of Bailey and Jones.

"I'm two fights away from being a world champion now. I've dreamed about this since I was nine years old and so this will be one of the biggest fights of my life."

Brook came face-to-face with his opponent today and said: "He's said the things he's going to do and that he'll come to my city and do things to me.

"In my last fight I was a bit too nice with Matthew Hatton but in this one, you're going to see the nasty side of me and he's going to get taken out.

"This kid is going to get taken out in style. It's not going 12 rounds. It's going to live up to expectations and an amazing fight.

"Carson Jones, you need to train hard mate!"

At a lively press conference, Jones (34-8-2, 24KO wins) warned Brook not to overlook him.

"Thank you, Kell Brook, for making this huge mistake," he said.

"A lot of your fans are saying a lot but when it comes down to it, you're the only person in the ring and the only person that can fight. Please, please, I'm asking - I'm begging you - please come straight forward and fight like you say you're going to do.

"Because you might be a beast, but I'm a monster. On July 7 I'll show you.

"I'm sure there are going to be 9,995 Kell Brook fans and about five Carson Jones fans but I'm still going to whoop his ass on the night."

Brook (27-0, 18KOs) responded to Jones' taunts in kind.

"We're going to war, mate," he promised. "We'll stand in the middle of the ring and go toe-to-toe. No backward steps."

Brook will be supported by two European title fights on the undercard at the Motorpoint Arena, while amateur star Kal Yafai makes his professional debut on the bill.

People are heavily overlooking Jones. I'm telling you, don't be surprised if you see Brook lose. Jones has 8 losses but as of recently he's beaten some decent opposition and has very good pop on his shots. This is the…

Only way Jones can win is a KO and he has the ability to get it done. But Kell knows all he needs to do is get on his bike for 12 rounds to win. Doubt he stands and fights…
