Photos: Soto Karass Training Hard For Mike Jones Rematch

In his mind Jesus Soto Karass has no doubt he beat Mike Jones last year in their fight at Cowboys Stadium, but he also knows that he will have to be better if wants to beat Jones when they meet this Saturday at the Mandalay Bay in a fight to be televised by HBO.

"I expect Mike Jones to be better, because I know that I will better. After you fight a guy, you know what to expect and I think that will be the case Saturday night," said Soto Karass who has been training in Los Angeles with Joe Goosen for this fight just like he did for the first encounter with Jones.

In the first fight Jones started very fast and had the lanky Mexican in big trouble in the second round and had a big lead after three, but he seem to loose steam and Soto Karass came back but it was no enough as the judges gave the nod to Jones.

"I am not the only one who though I won the fight a lot people did. And I think that is way are doing the rematch, because not only was it a good fight, but the wrong guy got the decision.", said Soto Karass.
 

Soto Karass had a streak of 15 fights without losing stopped on November of 2009 by Alfonso Gomez, then had a no contest in May of 2009 against Gabriel Martinez and then came the controversial loss to Jones last November.

"It has been kind of tough last the few fights, but I feel that I am ready to get going again and this fight with Jones is very important to my career. Things happen for a reason and I feel that all this adversity lately has made me more determined the ever," said Soto Karass.

Sotto Karass and his team will arrive tonight to Las Vegas and will at the press conference Thursday.

Black folks are not mentioning robbery, huh?? Soto won the first fight, and without the hugging tactics of Jones. Maybe he will lose this time, but he won the first fight.
