Queensbury Boxing League - Kinslow prepares for Seabrook

As Carl Kinslow and Joe Seabrook are set to meet in the ring for the National Cruiserweight title, Jack Figg reports on the challengers view heading into the bout. 

Cruiserweight national title challenger Carl Kinslow has warned champion Joe Seabrook he ‘coming’ for his belt.

Kinslow and Seabrook meet on June 30, ‘True Grit’ bill with the National cruiserweight title at stake. 

The two were previously scheduled for an April showdown however the fight was postponed as Seabrook suffered a work related injury. 

Kinslow comes into the bout as a former regional heavyweight champion and national heavyweight title challenger, while also stint as a professional MMA fighter. 

Seabrook captured the belt in February 2018 stopping Joey Pirotta in 20 seconds of the opening round, while also having experience boxing as an amateur representing Repton and Times ABC, leaving Kinslow to acknowledge his opponent's ability. 

“Joe is a good lad and he’s got a good pedigree from the amateurs” Kinslow admitted. 

“I’ve already come up against some tough lads one had 40 odd amatuer fights so from that I’m working on where I went wrong which will help me win this one.”

While recognising the in-ring experience Seabrook has, Kinslow also insisted he is coming for the title he failed at clinching up at heavyweight. 

“I really want to win that title, there’s a want there I’m working hard for it. I’m going to keep on going with a clever mindset. Talk is cheap, I may as well show it.

“I’m looking to come and get this, I’m not much of a talker I’m proven. “I’m coming to get that belt, the National title is a massive thing, I’m hungry for this belt.”  

As Kinslow has dropped down in weight the Kent man said he is also adapting to the timings of rounds from MMA to boxing, and revealed he is becoming sharper. 

“You can see I’ve lost about a stone or two from the last fight from working always, but working with talent” he said. 

“Normally I do the pro three minute rounds and I think that’s always been my error, by the time I get in there it’s over. 

“So what I’m, doing is still doing the long minutes but I'm working hard quick and fast and get in there quick and fast.”
