By Shaun Campbell: Kell Brook impressively closed a chapter on his career Saturday night by stopping the durable Carson Jones in their 152 pound rematch. Brook now moves in to the elite level by beating the gatekeeper Jones. It was a good performance from “The Special One”, although he himself claimed it was “nothing to get excited about”. The fight started off much like their first encounter with Brook dominating behind the jab, while Jones kept plodding forward. But the Sheffield fighter couldn’t seem to miss with his sweeping right hook and in the 2nd round he sent Jones to the canvas.
It seemed as thought it would be an early night for Brook. But the American is tough, and after a slow start began to loosen up and land on Brook, doing damage to his nose. But Brook remained calm and controlled the action at a measured pace. Should he have chose to step it up earlier, the stopped could have probably come much sooner. But in the 8th a series of unanswered punches by Brook forced the referee to call a halt, prompting complaints from Jones. Continue reading
