Brook gets his revenge; stops Jones in round eight. Hearn hints at something big for Brook coming next


Unbeaten jr middleweight Kell Brook (30-0, 20 KOs) scored an eighth round over TKO Oklahoman Carson Jones (35-10-3, 25 KOs) at the MS3 Craven Park in Hull, England. After going life and death with Jones in their first fight, Brook started strong forcing Jones to take a knee after an uppercut in round two. Brook dominated the first four rounds, but Jones started grinding back into the fight in round five. In round eight, Brook scored a questionable knockdown and then got a questionable stoppage moments later. No question that Brook was winning, but Jones still had some fight in him. Brook normally competes in the welterweight division, but this bout was fought a catch weight of 152. After the fight promoter Eddie Hearn stated that Brook will face a “big name” in September in Sheffield. The fight will be announced next week.
