Kell Brook displays guts and courage to overcome impressive Carson Jones in Sheffield

Posted: July 8, 2012 in Uncategorized

Kell Brook survived the biggest scare of his career so far after digging deep to overcome Carson Jones in Sheffield last night.

The Sheffield welterweight stretched his perfect record to 28 victories but it was anything but a comfortable night for Brook, who will now fight for a version of the world title.

Brook looked in dazzling form early on and came close to stopping the American on a number of occasions – most notably in the sixth and seventh rounds.

But a combination of fatigue and Jones courage almost saw the fight turn on its head.

Brook, who sustained a suspected broken nose, struggled to breathe as a result late on and came under immense pressure.

Jones (34 wins, nine losses, four draws) surged forward in the final round in search of a knockout and some prolonged punishment in the final seconds almost finished Brook.

But the undefeated Englishman clung on to claim his most notable victory in the face of severe adversity.
