As they sometimes do, things got a little tasty at the weigh-in for the fight between Kell Brook and Carson Jones this weekend.

After both boxers had been weighed, with both coming in under the agreed limit, Eddie Hearn, resplendent in all black like some veteran gunslinger coming into town; called both boxers back to centre stage for the inevitable eye-to-eye.

At first everything remained civil but just before the boxers broke to go their separate ways, Carson decided that a push, on Brooks shoulder was needed. Kell laughed it off but as the fighters exited the stage, an exchange of words could be clearly heard.

Now whilst nothing major should be made of this, perhaps it does show that there is some genuine needle in this match-up and that Carson is none too happy about how the result went when they last met.

Meanwhile, speaking to the media, Brook has promised to make short work of his opponent, remarking,

?He was at 100 per cent that night and I was nowhere near.?

‘He’s going to meet a very frustrated and angry man on Saturday.?

‘The last months have been so hard, with all that’s happened, and I just want to get fighting again.?

‘That fight bugged me because I knew I had let myself down and cut some corners in the build-up.?

‘I might have gone for someone easier, but I want to sort him out. I know he will be hard and test me, but I am in great shape and so ready for this fight.?

‘I have a lot of things to put right and I will make sure I do.’

Can Kell Brook live up to those words on Saturday night at the Craven Arena?

Here at Vital Boxing we hope so but Saturday night can?t come quick enough for us now.
