Carson Jones: I Think Brook Will Stop Alexander

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene recently paid a visit to welterweight contender Carson Jones' training camp at The Summit Gym in Big Bear, Calif. Jones is training for his December 8th showdown against Lee Purdy that takes place in the UK.

Jones lost a majority decision to up and coming welterweight contender Kell Brook in his most recent fight. The Briton will face IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander on January 19th in the United States. I asked Jones for a prediction on the Alexander-Brook fight which will be televised by Showtime.

"I am pulling for him (Brook). Hopefully he wins. I think he will stop Devon. Kell is very accurate where Devon is more of a flashy fighter. Like I said before I think he will end up stopping him," Jones opined.

My colleague Chris Robinson then asked Jones if he thought Alexander would have the edge because of his experience against top level fighters. Jones didn't agree and said that he thought Alexander lost some of the fights that he was credited with the victory.

"I don't think so. I think that he lost some of those fights. I think he lost versus the Argentine guy (Matthysse). Brook is stronger than Devon. He is the natural 147 pounder and Devon is coming up in weight. Anything can happen but I think Kell will win," Jones concluded.

I am sorry but Devon is overrated 100%. Bailey probably could have stopped him had he actually had the energy or drive to actually fight that night. Devon is a nice kid sure and humble but he is just boring, and not spectacular whatsoever. "1-2-3 shoeshine, annoying grunt", that his fight summed ...

I don't see anything special about Devon Alexander. People talk about Matthyse, Maidana & Bailey as proof of him having a great chin and being elite level. Matthyse beat him on most people's card, Maidana is inconsistent at best and Bailey set a [U]compubox record for inactivity[/U] FFS. The g...

[QUOTE=taansend]Lou, He also has 34 wins with 24 kayos & has learnt his trade the hard way, not pampered like many (including Brook). I'd say his opinion carries more weight than yours.[/QUOTE] Green K for this right here.
