Friday afternoon Kell Brook and Carson Jones weighed in ahead of their IBF World Welterweight Title eliminator in Sheffield on Saturday evening. Emotions were running high as both men engaged in a heated stare down which has followed on from a war of words ever since the contract was signed between the two.  Jones will be the underdog with the bookmakers but does boast an impressive recent record stopping his last 8 opponents. Jones is no stranger to winning away from home and will hope that the hometown crowd does not have any sort of effect during this fight as we have witnessed in the past,most recently in Carl Froch’s demolition of Lucian Bute in Nottingham.  Special K, Kell Brook boasts a perfect professional record and is tipped by many to go on and have a successful career at the top of the welterweight division.  With the uncertainty surrounding the future of Floyd Mayweather and the on between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley coupled with the unfinished business between the Philippine hero and Juan Manuel Marquez it really gives Kell the chance to put himself in the world title picture.  Whilst the likes of Mayweather and Pacquiao are the pinnacle of the division and seemingly out of Kell’s reach in the immediate future, the possibility of facing newly crowned IBF champion Rendall Bailey is a promising prospect for the Sheffield man.   Check out the footage from today’s weigh in….
