Brian Rose Splits With Bobby Rimmer, Will Campaign At 154

By Elliot Foster

Brian Rose and his trainer Bobby Rimmer have split after 12 years together.

The pair, who according to former world title challenger Rose parted on good terms, hit the top of the tree at domestic level before falling short on the global stage.

‘The Lion’, 32, has a record of 29-5-1 with eight early and is a proud holder of the Lord Lonsdale belt outright.

But after such a long period working under Rimmer, he feels it’s time to change his setup as he moves in to what many could see as the last chance saloon.

“Me and Bobby will still remain friends, maybe even become better friends after this,” he told the Blackpool Gazette when revealing the news.

“I know that Bobby is an outstanding trainer - he has worked with boxers like Ricky and Matthew Hatton, Michael Gomez, as well as myself.

“He got me to a British title and a world title shot and put me in world class, but I just feel I need a change.”

Rose, who is experimenting with a number of potential new coaches before making an eventual decision on the identity of his next cornerman, was outpointed by Jack Arnfield –– another former Rimmer fighter –– in a challenge for the WBA International middleweight title back in March.

"I want to learn new techniques and prove myself to a new trainer as I move on to the next chapter in my career and the last chapter,” he concluded, before revealing that he intends to campaign at super-welterweight.
