‘Special Kell Brook is only decent, I will expose him’ – Carson Jones

When IBF number three rated welterweight and USBA champion Carson Jones challenged undefeated Kell Brook, he wasn’t sure if the highly-touted Brit would accept. Brook, (27-0-0, 18ko), had set his sights on newly-crowned WBA champion Paulie Malignaggi or the Mike Jones-Randall Bailey winner, but neither bout would be immediately available. Although he initially attempted to leapfrog Jones into a title shot, Brook, IBF number five, ultimately agreed to face him Saturday, July 7 in an elimination bout at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield, United Kingdom.

Widely regarded one of the most dangerous contender in the 147lb division, Jones, (34-8-2, 24ko), is on a strong run during the last three years, compiling a 17-1-1 record against good opposition. His victims include 2000 Olympic Silver Medalist Ricardo Williams, record breaking knockout artist Tyrone Brunson, Michi Munoz, Jason LeHoullier, Michael Clark (41-5-1) and Said Ouali.

Jones, who went from being an opponent to a bonafide contender and stopped all of the aforementioned foes, is fully confident that he’ll have his way with Brook: “He is in my way of a world title shot,” said the 25-year-old Oklahoma City native.

“He’ll have to kill me to beat me and I’m not even sure if that’ll get the job done! I’ll be pressuring him from the opening bell and I think the knockout will come.”

Jones also dismissed all of the hype surrounding Brook.

“He is a decent fighter but should change his name from ‘Special K’ to ‘Decent K’ [because] nothing about him stands out. I’ve already beaten guys in their hometowns and Kell hasn’t fought anybody as good as me. I’m going to expose him!”

Chris Hastings, president of HD Boxing Promotions – Jones’ representative, added: “We’re extremely excited about this fight and this is a huge moment for HD Boxing. Carson is 8-0 with 8 knockouts since moving down to welterweight and he will be the IBF welterweight champion in the future without question. We’re excited to take on all-comers. The top guys should all watch out!”
