Roy Jones Jr. Admits Retirement Could Be Very Close
By Luke Furman
According to former four division world champion Roy Jones Jr. (55-8, 40 KOs), there might be two fights left in his career. The 43-year-old boxer, who won titles at middleweight, super middleweight, light heavyweight and heavyweight, is looking to accomplish one more goal - winning the cruiserweight title.
On Saturday night in Lodz, Poland - Jones will face undefeated contender Pawel Glazewski (17-0, 4 KOs). If Jones wins on Saturday, there is a pre-fight agreement to face WBC cruiserweight champion Krzysztof Wlodarczyk (46-2-1, 33KOs) in the fall.
If he manages to capture the WBC championship, he admits his career might finally be over and he might finally head to retirement.
