Nelson Says Kell Brook Will Be Tested Tough By Jones

Ringside’s Johnny Nelson believes a world title fight will be next on Kell Brook’s schedule if he can overcome the tough challenge of Carson Jones on July 7 at the Motorpoint Arena, Sheffield.

The Sky Sports pundit thinks a positive outcome could open doors to potential world title shots for the winner, heaping even more importance on the fight which is already a must-win bout for both men. Jones, from Oklahoma, is coming to take Brook on in his own backyard and Nelson added that he thinks the decision for him to take the fight on foreign soil should not be taken lightly by the undefeated Brit and could result in a "scary night".

“They’re both at a stage in their careers where they need the win, they desperately need the win,” said Nelson. “The next step is obviously a world title fight. Kell’s boxing the number three in the IBF, young, hungry, lost one of his last 20, stopped the last eight. So Carson Jones is no push-over. For him to come to England at number three, he doesn’t need that. Kell needs him more than he needs Kell. That shows he’s confident, that shows how much he thinks he can win this fight.”

The American is third in the IBF welterweight rankings but is little-known in the UK. Former cruiserweight champ, Nelson, feels he represents a step-up in class for the Special One and that it will be a night of learning for Brook.

“I think it’s a hard fight, I don’t know if I’d have gone down this path,” said Nelson. “I think it’s a points win for Kell. A close, hard points win for Kell. It’s not going to be a push-over, I think it’ll be a scary night and he will discover something else about himself. Be it heart, be it his arsenal, be it his determination, how much he wants it. But I think it’s going to be a close, close fight.”

Before the main event there is a stacked undercard led by two European title rematches as Gavin Rees defends his lightweight title against Derry Mathews and Kerry Hope defends his Middleweight title against Greg Proksa. Lee Purdy defends his English title against Chris Johnson while Matchroom new boy and ex GB fighter Kal Yafai will be making his professional debut. There will also be outings for unbeaten rising stars Ryan Aston and Scotty Cardle.
