Rose: Forget British Level, I Want World Title Shot

Brian Rose says his clash with Carson Jones on February 14 at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool is a must-win contest if he wants to fulfil his world champion ambitions.

Rose meets the American for the vacant WBC International light middleweight title but the Blackpool ace says there is more that the belt on the line as he aims for another world title shot.

The 29 year old challenged Demetrius Andrade for the WBO crown in June in New York, and was stopped by the Rhode Island star in the seventh round. Rose admitted he froze on the big stage, but believes he can make his second chance count after the experience - providing he gets past Jones.

Rose said: “Boxing only lasts so long, I want to give it one more big push to win a world title so February 14 is must win,

“I won't step back down to British title level, no disrespect to the guys there, but I am finished with that level. So if I get beaten at this stage then I am done as I want to be a world champion. I have given myself a level to operate at, and that is world level, losing to Carson Jones means it is not worth carrying on as I am not going to stick around to get beaten.

“I am that confident though of beating him and going on to get a world title shot and this time performing to my best.”

Rose’s clash with Jones tops a big night of action in Blackpool as eight contenders battle it out in the 35th edition of Prizefighter, with the middleweights line-up featuring five fighters putting their undefeated records on the line.

They are Tom Doran, Mick Hall, Craig Cunningham (all 11-0), Luke Keeler (7-0) and Blackpool’s own Jack Arnfield (17-0), and they’ll be joined on the night by Cumbria’s Liam Conroy (7-2), Peterborough’s 'Dangerous' Cello Renda (25-10-2) and Warren Tansey (10-1).

I must say I'm a tad baffle with all this! Rose's way back is via Commonwealth & EBU title fights! & preferably outside of the UK!

GTFO, he flopped miserably against Andrade. No one is interested. Too much real talent ahead of him like the Charlo brothers and Julian Williams and others.
