Brian Rose said that his highly anticipated showdown with Carson Jones is so significant that he will hang up his gloves if he happens to lose the fight, and bookmaker software services can’t wait to see what will happen in this clash, and with his career.
The fighter from Blackpool will face Jones at home on the 14th of February, and this fight will definitely prove to be very important, with the WBC International light-middleweight title in jeopardy at the Winter Gardens.
Rose, 29-years-old, said that he has to win the fight if he wants to have another opportunity to try to clinch the world title, something that many fans want to see.
In June, Demetrius Andrade was able to stop Rose in round seven when the fighter challenged for the WBO crown in a fight that took place in New York, but he believes that his performance will improve if he can have another go at a title.
“Boxing only lasts so long,” said Rose. “I want to give it one more big push to win a world title, so February 14 is must-win.
However, many fans believe that all that the fighter has to do to change his mind about how long a boxer can last is to take a look at Bernard Hopkins’ career.
“I won’t step back down to British title level. No disrespect to the guys there, but I am finished with that level. So, if I get beaten at this stage then I am done, as I want to be a world champion.
“I have given myself a level to operate at, and that is world level. Losing to Carson Jones means it is not worth carrying on, as I am not going to stick around to get beaten.
“I am that confident though of beating him, going on to get a world title shot, and this time performing to my best.”
The showdown between Rose and Jones in Blackpool is at the top of a huge night of action, as there will be eight challengers at middleweight who will also fight in Prizefighter’s 35th edition, with five of them putting their undefeated records in jeopardy.
Boxing fans and bookmaker software services know how important this fight is to Rose, but they hope that he doesn’t retire just yet whatever happens in the ring , for the sake of his fans and his career.
