Brian Rose Admits Career at Stake in Jones Rematch

Brian Rose says he must beat Carson Jones to keep his career alive when the pair meet in a rematch on August 1 in Hull, live on Sky Sports.

Rose lost a dramatic one-round contest in Blackpool in February, hurting Jones early in the fight only for the American to turn the tables and stun hometown fans with the controversial stoppage win.

The 30-year-old former world title challenger has bounced back from a damaging defeat before, beating Max Maxwell in a British title defence in March 2012, almost two years after Maxwell had stopped him in an eight-round clash – and Rose believes he will gain revenge on the Oklahoma fighter.

“I have to win this fight and there are no ifs or buts about it,” said Rose. “I have come back from worse than this and everyone knows I have a big heart.

“A lot of people can’t come back from defeat - I can and I have proved it before. I want to clear up what I should have done in the first fight, and I have never been more determined in my life before a fight.

“Everybody said before the last fight that it was a mismatch and that I would beat Jones, and it didn’t happen. Now it will be regarded as a big fight.

“I am more confident than I was when I fought Max Maxwell for the second time after he had beaten me in the first fight.

“I beat Maxwell and I intend to do the same against Jones. There is no doubt Jones is a good fighter - he took Kell Brook the whole way and he beat me in a round in Blackpool, although I thought that it was stopped too early.

“I hurt him early in the first round in Blackpool and maybe I got too excited after that. That is normally not like me, and I will go back to being cautious, which is how I normally approach things.”

Rose’s rematch with Jones is part of a massive night of action at the KC Stadium, topped by the all-Hull WBC world lightweight title official eliminator between Luke Campbell and Tommy Coyle.

Honestly you can't really complain about the stoppage (maybe a tad premature), he was doing the Khan dance. Good luck to him in the rematch but unfortunately it's evident he's not world level. I've said time and time before though,…

When I watched the first fight live I thought it was a terrible stoppage. Watched it again the other day and I've changed my mind somewhat. Still premature but Rose was not fighting back and got hit cleaner with one…
