Brian Rose-Carson Jones Pushed To February 14th

Brian Rose’s WBC International Light Middleweight title fight against Carson Jones will top a Prizefighter Middleweights bill at the Winter Gardens, Blackpool on Saturday, February 14, live on Sky Sports.

Rose’s clash with Jones was originally scheduled for January 23 in Manchester but following the postponement of that bill the Blackpool boxer will now have the chance to fight in front of a hometown crowd as he continues his charge for a second World title shot.

American Jones is familiar on these shores after he gave Kell Brook the fight of his life in July 2012 and returned for a rematch 12 months later.

The bout tops an exciting Prizefighter Middleweights line-up with five fighters putting their ‘0’ on the line.

The unbeaten quintet are Tom Doran, Mick Hall, Craig Cunningham (all 11-0), Luke Keeler (7-0) and Blackpool’s own Jack Arnfield (17-0). They are joined by Cumbria’s Liam Conroy (7-2), Peterborough’s 'Dangerous' Cello Renda (25-10-2) and Warren Tansey (10-1), who fights for the first time in 14 months.

Promoter Eddie Hearn said, “I’m pleased to have been able to re-schedule Brian’s bout with Jones for Blackpool. I know how much he enjoys fighting in front of his hometown crowd and I am sure he’ll receive fantastic support at the Winter Gardens.

“It is a great opportunity to bring Prizefighter back to the North West, where it is always a popular show. We have some great fighters confirmed and I am sure we’ll see a superb Prizefighter in Blackpool.”

Tickets are available now to Matchroom Fight Pass members and will be available on general sale from 9am on Wednesday, December 31 at www.MatchroomBoxing.com priced £40 unreserved, £70 ringside and £120 VIP.
