Jones and Hopkins plan rematch

BOXING: Six-time world champion Roy Jones Jr and two-weight title-holder Bernard Hopkins have reignited their rivalry by agreeing a rematch for early next year.

Jones, 40, claimed a unanimous points decision when the two ring legends fought in 1993. He has won his last two fights, after losing to Joe Calzaghe, while Hopkins, 44, beat middleweight king Kelly Pavlik in his last bout.
