Roy Jones Eyes Title Run: I Feel Like I'm 27, 28-Years-Old

By Yuri Tarantin

On December 21st in Moscow, former four division world champion  Roy Jones Jr. (56-8, 40KOs), 44-years-old, will take on 36-year-old Frenchman Zine Eddine Benmakhlouf (17-3-1, 8KOs). Jones, fighting in the cruiserweight division, says he doesn't have any plans to retire in the near future. Jones will return for the first time since the controversial June 2012 victory over Pawel Glazewski in Poland.

"I am delighted to be back in Russia. I hope to make history here again. I intend to win all of the titles. I'm back and I'm in good shape. I'm going to show some good boxing [in the ring]. I trained very well for this fight, because I'm always ready, I set out to win. I feel like I'm 27, 28-years-old, and I could box for 25 more years," Jones said.

RJJ has become a massive joke. Really you feel like you're in your 20's? You can't even speak a sentence without sluring your words to advertise your $5 Internet PPV's. Somone put this retard out of his misery already

[QUOTE=- Ram Raid -;14053147]That really was the point that I was making. Regardless of fundamental technique both fighters became very vulnerable after stripping off lean body mass. So for me it isn't an issue of Roy not having the fundamentals…
