Brian Rose (29-4-1 8KOs), trained by the experienced Bobby Rimmer is a seasoned professional who finds himself in a potentially career ending fight against fellow Blackpool lad Jack Arnfield (23-2, 6KOs).

Brian, 32 has admitted himself, that this fight is a must win for him if he wishes to get back in the elite mix for world titles again.

Standing in his way is long time friend and former training partner Jack Arnfield, 27 who is now trained by Dave and Mike Jennings in Chorley. Arnfield was once also under the guidance of Bobby Rimmer which perhaps accounted for the needle between the two camps at today’s press conference.

We caught up with Team Rose who were in a confident and resolute mood ahead of this big domestic clash which some people are calling “Bragging Rights” or the “Battle of Blackpool”. There is clearly a lot at stake for both teams and we anticipate an exciting fight between two high calibre fighters and experienced men in respective corners.

In this interview Rose says his friend Arnfield has sold him out for money, after taking the fight when he said he wouldn’t. Bobby Rimmer adds, Jack Arnfield is jealous of Rose! Interview by Aky Karim.
