Roy Jones Eyes Robert Guerrero-Paul Spadafora Clash

By Bill Emes

Former four division champion Roy Jones Jr. advised BoxingScene.com that he wants to match junior welterweight contender Paul Spadafora (46-0-1, 19KOs) against Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero (30-1, 18KOs), the WBC's interim-champion at welterweight.

Spadafora returned on Saturday night in West Virginia, for the first time in two years, and won an eight round unanimous decision over Humberto Toledo.

Spadafora is now promoted by a new company that Jones is involved with, TNT Promotions.

"I think I'm going to give him one more fight and then I'll be looking for Robert 'The Ghost' Guerrero for him....because I think that's a great fight for him. I always dreamed of him fighting The Ghost because I think their styles are a lot alike. I think that's a great fight for him," Jones said.

They probably forgot to put the 0 space. Anyway... why not? Guerrero ain't fighting Floyd any time soon. Get a Guerrero vs Maidana match going again and let's set this puppy off next year
