NABA and WBO NABO welterweight champion Mike “MJ” Jones out of Philadelphia seeks 23rd straight win at Cowboy’s Stadium in Dallas Saturday night! Jones is facing his toughest opponent to date in Jesus Soto Karass, 24-4-3 (16), of Mexico, who in his last fight fought a NC with now WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez. With only one loss in his last 17 fights Karass is looking to move up the ladder on the higher ranked Jones.

Only common opponent is Germaine Sanders whom both have defeated. Since defeating Sanders Jones has defeat all Latino’s in his last 9 fights. Jones has scored 18 knockouts in his 22 wins and per co-manager Jimmy Williams Jones will be seen by more people on the undercard of Pacquiao and Margarito in one night than in his entire career.

Jones has brought that “old Philadelphia” style of his mostly between Philadelphia and Atlantic City only venturing elsewhere 4 times in his young career. The Jones-Karass will be over 10 rounds with Jones NABA and WBO NABO title’s at stake.

Jones other co-manager Doc Nowicki and Williams have a fine stable they are building with Jones leading the way. Jones promoter J Russell Peltz for the first time is putting Jones in with another promotional team in Top Rank. With the best pound for pound boxer in all of boxing in WBO Super welterweight Pacquiao moving up to 154 to meet the WBC’s No. 1 contender in Margarito for the vacant title, Jones is in a good position if the title is vacant at No. 2 to meet top rated Kell Brook for a possible vacant title. Jones is No. 4 in the WBC taking on the No. 7 Karass and hopes to move up to challenge Andre Berto, WBC champion. Jones is the top contender in the WBA and No. 4 in the IBF.
