Carson Jones has vowed to punish Kell Brook when they meet in an IBF welterweight title eliminator on July 7 after Brook predicted he will KO the American. Brook and Jones clash at the Motorpoint Arena Sheffield on July 7 and Brook raised the stakes last week when he promised to knock out the Oklahoma fighter to claim a shot at the title. Rated one spot higher in the rankings than Brook at number three, Jones travels to England for the first time in his career and says he’ll make ‘The Special One’ pay for calling him a quitter and grab the title chance for himself.
“This kid is confused about what he is up against,” said Jones. “There is no quit in me, which is why I am in this position I am in right now. I never gave up.” Jones said he wasn’t impressed by Brook’s destructive 12 round win over Matthew Hatton and Brook himself admitted that he needed to be nastier against Jones – and the visitor has his own take on that claim. “I agree we will see the nasty Kell Brook, because after I beat the hell out of him his face will look very nasty,” said Jones. The 25 year old has stopped his last eight opponents on his way to facing Brook, and the USBA champ has got his eye on another British fight should he beat Brook in his backyard. “Amir Khan is a good boxer but I don’t think he has the heart to match,” said Jones of the Bolton boxer linked to a future showdown with Brook. “And I think I would stop him just like I will Kell Brook.”
