Brian Rose Furious With Ref: I Demand Jones Rematch!

Brian Rose insists the referee didn't give him a chance to recover before stopping his fight with Carson Jones on Saturday night.

The Blackpool light-middleweight was beaten inside the opening round by Jones after referee Ian John-Lewis prevented him taking any more punishment.

Rose, who staggered but never fell, claims the stoppage was too early particularly since Jones had already benefited from the referee's leniency after getting hurt.

"He didn’t give me a chance but I feel he gave Jones a chance. I buzzed him and I had him going worse than he had me," Rose told Sky Sports.

"I’m so annoyed at the referee’s decision, he stood in here 15 minutes before saying he’d give us both a chance if we were hurt. He didn’t give me a chance. I might have been hurt, I felt a buzz but I knew exactly where I was and I was about to start firing my shots back.

"That’s the way I fight, I cover up and let my opponents let their shots go. The referee should know that. I’m the sort of fighter who gets hit, covers up, and takes it on the gloves."

Rose had initially stung Jones with a right hook but the American turned the tables in the blink of an eye with a bludgeoning overhand right. Jones followed up with a series of blows, culminating in a left hook, before the referee's interruption with Rose defending himself.

Rose added: "He was going to come with a barrage of punches, I know that’s what he was going to do, but I would have soaked them up and it would have been him in the long run losing all his energy. That’s how I fight, he’s an experienced referee, he should know that.

"I hold my hands up, I was hurt, but so was he. I don’t think it should have been stopped. He caught me and I felt a buzz but Demetrious Andrade hit me 50 times like that.

"I demand a rematch. I want something done. He gave him a chance, why not give me a chance?

I just watched it now on youtube. Stoppage was bad. Rose was doing the Khan unicycle dance but the ref did not give him enough time and there was little time left in the round.

They'll most likely get it, but Jones has options now since he won some fringe belt and probably gets some ranking for a belt nobody can win anyway until Mayweather retires. Jones should take the rematch. He looked slow and…
