Blackpool boxer Brian Rose produced one of the most outstanding and brave performances of his career to beat American Carson Jones at the Hull Kingston Rovers’ rugby ground
He took the verdict on all three judges’ cards after an at times brutal clash when both boxers’ bravery shone through in abundance.
In the process Rose gained revenge for a loss at the hands of Jones in Blackpool back in February.
Rose was hurt in the second round by a sustained barrage from the American and for a few seconds he looked in real trouble.
But he weathered the storm to take control earning even more admiration from his supporters after such a valiant display.
