Eddie Hearn confirms Lee Purdy to fight Carson Jones in December

Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn reveals on Twitter that Lee Purdy will face Carson Jones in December.

Matchroom boxing boss Eddie Hearn has confirmed that Carson Jones will be back on British soil later this year to take on Lee Purdy.

Jones was part of a hard-fought battle against Kell Brook in July, losing a narrow points decision to the Sheffield star.

Hearn took to Twitter earlier today to reveal the news, tweeting: "Delighted to confirm we have made @leepurdy1 v @carson_jones1 for December - confirmation of date and venue coming soon..what a fight!"

Purdy elevated his status by claiming the IBF International welterweight title earlier this month with a knockout victory over Gumersindo Lucas Carrasco.
