Kell Brook vs. Carson Jones: Preview, Prediction for Junior Middleweight Bout

Brook struggled mightily with Jones in their first fight.

Unbeaten British welterweight contender Kell Brook will get a second bite at the apple this Saturday when he meets rugged veteran Carson Jones in a rematch of their highly controversial 2012 bout. 

Brook dominated the early rounds of their first contest with his boxing ability, but he faded badly down the stretch under a withering assault from Jones. Many observers felt that Jones, who came close to stopping Brook in the final frame, had done enough to earn no less than a draw.

The only opinions that matter, however, are those of the official judges and they awarded Brook a majority decision victory by scores of 115-113, 116-113 and 114-114. 

The rematch will be contested at junior middleweight, and it will give both men a chance to jump back into the championship picture. 

Read on for our complete preview and prediction for Brook vs. Jones II.
