Kell Brook Vows To Display 'Nasty Side' Against Jones

Kell Brook will put his unbeaten record on the line against Carson Jones in his home town of Sheffield on July 7.

Brook told Sky Sports' Ringside programme he will tackle the American - beaten just once in his last 19 fights - in an eliminator for the International Boxing Federation's welterweight title.

Jones is ranked third by the organization - two places above Brook - while top-rated duo Mike Jones and Randall Bailey contest the vacant title next month.

And Brook, who won a unanimous decision over Matthew Hatton in March, said: "I'm ready to get on the world stage now.

"I thought I was too nice against Hatton. Against Carson Jones you're going to see the nasty Kell Brook - you'll see me pushing the fight and being aggressive."

Would-be welterweight Amir Khan remains the long-term target for Brook, who said: "I'm in the mix now and it's just a matter of time. That's the fight we all do want to see."

The Sheffield bill will also feature two European title fights.

Gavin Rees and Derry Mathews will meet again for the lightweight belt after last October's fight was declared a technical draw following a clash of heads.

Meanwhile, Welshman Kerry Hope will take on Surrey-based Pole Greg Proksa for the middleweight crown. It is another rematch with Hope having won the title in their first meeting.

[QUOTE=komodo;12114444]First go and "research" the level of opposition he's faced before you start hyping him up. Fair enough he's stopped 7 of his last 8 but they weren't exactly top class opposition. On top of that he's not even ranked…

The title can say Kell Brook's full name, but not Carson Jones. Just to waste some ones time for they can click it and think it's Mike Jones. With my slow internet, this is really really annoying.

[QUOTE=komodo;12114444]But a KO ratio of 52% doesn't make you a puncher.[/QUOTE]NOT Correct! There are many fighters with solid power who have learned how to throw punches more correctly and land with power. Jessie Magdaleno has an average KO% but hit…
