Eddie Hearn has confirmed that Kell Brook will rematch Carson Jones on a "Huge night of boxing" at Hull's Craven Park Stadium on July 13. Brook-Jones II will be joined by Luke Campbell's pro debut and the Commonwealth lightweight title showdown between Hull's Tommy Coyle and Liverpool's Derry Mathews.
Brook, 29-0 (19), suffered a broken nose en route to a decision win over Jones, 35-9-3 (25), last year, but has been unable to move forward with his ill-fated showdown with Devon Alexander. A rematch with Jones will give the Sheffield-based boxer the opportunity to shed some ring rust, he has fought not fought since wiping out Hector Saldivia in three rounds in October, and help get his world title bid back on target.
Campbll, 25, won bantamweight gold at the Olympic Games and is ready to take his professional bow in front of his hometown fans. "We've got a big venue for this one and we can't wait to take Luke back to Hull," said Hearn when speaking to BoxingScene about the show.
