Brian Rose Vows To Make His Comeback in Top Form

Former world title challenger and British champion Brian Rose will be back in action on the MTK Global show at Victoria Warehouse in Manchester on November 9.
‘The Lion’ (29-5-1-KO8) has been out of action since a controversial points defeat to Jack Arnfield in March 2017 with a WBA ranking title on the line and is determined to re-establish himself in the middleweight division.

Rose said: “Being out for over a year has done me some good. I boxed since the age of nine and never had a year out so I’ve had a good rest and a good time.
“I did things like go on holiday and go on my mate’s stag-do. I’d never had time to enjoy myself before because I’d always dedicated my life to boxing.
“About six or seven months in, I really missed boxing and realised I needed it back in my life. I didn’t want to get to 40 years old and regret losing close decisions to the likes of Matthew Macklin and Jack Arnfield.
“Those fights could’ve gone either way and I realised I didn’t want to leave my boxing career with any regrets. This last chapter will give me closure.
“Of course, retiring went through my mind. I hit rock bottom after the loss to Arnfield – I’m not going to lie. After that, a few things changed in my life and I realised I could come back from it.
“I’ve come back from worse things. I’ve done it before and I’ll do it again. This’ll be my best comeback.”

Performance against Andrade was the most embarrassing performance by a British fighter in recent times, Rose punched well above his weight, he's a bang average domestic level fighter!

No power and doesn't move his head, and he ducked beefy.

Props to Brian for always taking his job seriously by showing up in shape, making weight and always having a crack but he doesn't have the skillset to thrive against the new crop of talent coming through in the UK.…

A few years ago Brian Rose was still a decent boxer, a few years before that he was a very talented prospect. Then he sustained an awful cut across the bridge of his nose against a boxer who's name escapes…
