Promoter Russell Peltz has advised BoxingScene.com that welterweight contender Mike Jones (26-1, 19KOs) is still sitting on the sidelines. Jones has been inactive since last June, when he was knocked out by Randal Bailey on the Manny Pacquiao-Timothy Bradley undercard at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Later that year, Jones attempted to break his promotional contract with Russell Peltz, who handles the boxer with Top Rank. Peltz communicates with Jones through the fighter's attorney, Eric Melzer of New Jersey-based Greenbaum, Rowe, Smith & Davis.

On March 22, Jones agreed to face on a June card in Atlantic City, but then changed his mind on March 29th and refused to sign a contract. No reason was provided, but Jones has several years remaining on his current promotional agreement.

A few weeks ago, Peltz was approached about matching Jones against Kell Brook (30-0, 20KOs) on October 26th at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield. Jones turned the fight down and Brook closed a deal to face Vyacheslav Senchenko.

"I've tried to get him into a fight. First it was the Ray Narh fight that he agreed to and then turned down, and then he turned down Kell Brook for October in England. They called us about two or three weeks ago to see if we were interested in fighting Kell Brook and he didn't want to," Peltz tells BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=Rikanlynx86]Tbh everytime I have seen Jones fight since the first karass match, he stunk up the joint. Unless he decides to be a little more offensive monded, which I doubt after that ko loss, I am not in a rush to see him in the ring again.[/QUOTE] The only people he managed to convin...

[QUOTE=.:: JSFD26 ::.]That's what a KO would do to you unless your name is Emmanuel Pacquiao. Posted from Boxingscene.com App for Android[/QUOTE] Or Amir Khan. My man gets more confident with each time he gets KO'd.

Tbh everytime I have seen Jones fight since the first karass match, he stunk up the joint. Unless he decides to be a little more offensive monded, which I doubt after that ko loss, I am not in a rush to see him in the ring again.

Frank Warren tried to make this fight for Brook a few years ago, and Kell ducked him them. Now they want him...
