Carson Jones: Purdy Won't Last More Than Six Rounds!

By Ryan Burton

Welterweight contender Carson Jones (34-9-2, 24KOs) is deep in his training camp for his December 8th showdown against Lee Purdy (19-3-1, 12KOs).  Jones lost a close decision to Kell Brook in his most recent fight which also took place in Britain. Many observers felt the fight could have went either way. Jones said that he won't make the same mistake in his return engagement to the UK. Jones doesn't plan on the fight against Purdy going the distance.

"I should have got going earlier in the fight against Brook. People said that Brook had a stamina problem but I think he had a Carson Jones problem. I broke his nose but I got started too late in the fight.  I don't see the fight versus Purdy going more than 6 rounds," Jones stated.   

Jones said that he enjoys fighting in the UK and said that he has been received well by the UK fans.  He said he wouldn't mind fighting in the UK on a regular basis.

"The fans were great. They have supported me real well. I'm focused on Purdy but if they want to talk about more fights out there afterwards I would listen. The fans in the UK have been real good," Jones told BoxingScene.

I like Carson Jones fighting in the UK. Can't see Warren ever putting him in with Frankie Gavin though. A fight with Matty Hatton (who is also IBF ranked) would be a ticket seller and relevant. Wouldn't mind seeing him…

He'd be one of our best welterweights after Gavin & Brook. I'd like to see him fight Gavin too, that would answer a lot of questions. Gavin is out again mid-January.

Should adopt him and match him with all our talent or lack of talent.

Purdy is in too deep with Jones but it will be a war until it lasts. Good to see Matchroom making the fights we want. :fing02:

Fair play, he should fight over here more often.
