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.

Check out this 14 minute interview with RJJ talking about Tarver being on steroids, his past plans, future plans. Darius M., Gerald Mccullen etc.

People seeking him out for interviews are feeding his delusion that he's still relevant.

Roy looked bad in his last fight against a nobody who been retired for two years. He also looked like he had changed his style a bit, not one leaping left hook in the entire fight. Hope he dosen't get ko:ed tonight.
