Roy Jones Jr. Battles Hani Atiyo on Sep. 26 in Krasnodar

By Alexey Sukachev

Former four-division multi-title world champion Roy Jones Jr. (58-8, 41 KOs) continues his de facto international farewell tour on September 26 in Krasnodar, Russia. The American icon will take on Hani “The Egyptian Hurricane” Atiyo (14-2, 10 KOs) – it’s not yet clear if his WBU title will be at stake in this fight.

Jones, 45, was last seen in the ring in July in Riga, Latvia, scoring his first stoppage win since 2009 against British veteran Courtney Fry. Atiyo, a reigning Egyptian light heavyweight champion has never fought outside of Africa, losing twice on a kayo to Ugandan veteran Joey Vegas. The show will be promoted by Kirill Pchelnikov.

RJ is gaining more and more confidence. He is taking on guys that are pretty good. Fry was a very good opponent and a previous Light Heavyweight champ. Check out Fry's previous fights and you'll all agree that he was…
