In a highly charged IBF welterweight eliminator, #4 rated Kell Brook (28-0, 18 KOs) won a hard fought twelve round majority decision over #3 rated Carson Jones (34-9-2, 24 KOs) on Saturday night at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield, England. Brook built up an early lead, then withstood a furious late assault by Jones to win by scores of 114-114, 116-113, 115-113.

In a rematch, middleweight Grzegorz Proksa (28-1, 21 KOs) avenged an earlier upset loss and knocked out Euro champion Kerry Hope (17-4, 1 KO) in round eight. Time was 2:59.

Former world champion and reigning Euro lightweight king Gavin Rees (37-1-1, 18 KOs) scored a good action ninth round KO over Derry Mathews (30-7-1, 16 KOs). Rees battered the game Mathews, finally decking him at 1:20 of round nine.
