Default Brook/Jones Proksa/Hope II Rees/Matthews II 7th July

Carson Jones hasn't been confirmed yet, but should be tomorrow.



Purdy defending his English title against Chris Johnson, then the likes of Ryder, Aston, Cardle.

Quality card.

Eddie Hearn ‏ @EddieHearn

Ok.. @gavtherock will rematch @derrymathews1 on the July 7th @SpecialKBrook card. Hope v Proksa II and Purdy v Johnson also.

No way this sells out like the Brook/Hatton fight did (which I was at) not many boxing fans really know who Carson Jones is let alone the casuals.

After this fight Brook really needs to step it up or people are gonna lose interest, he can't be expecting the big names to come to Sheffield to fight him, he's gonna have to go back to America and challenge the winner of Jones/Bailey and Ortiz/Berto.

I think your underestimating Eddie's ability to sell a fight, world ranked American, that is all Eddie needs.

The problem for Brook is that no one actively wants to fight him as he usually looks so damn impressive- Jones isn't a bad fight to further Brook's career.

Rees v Matthews could be particularly interesting!

Its a gradual step up for Kell, and I mean gradual.

Not really impressed with this.

Agree, but it gets him closer to the Jones/Bailey winner.

Looks pretty solid apart from the Main Event.

Brook/Jones is a solid fight IMO.

If you've ever watched Jones you'll realize that.

I have But I'll be Honest I think Kell beats him handsomely I mean Jones has some decent wins of late especially the Ouali one but I'm just not excited by the fight I'm probably just disappointed as I was expecting a bigger name.
