Brad Solomon Inks With Prince, Roy Jones To Train, More

By Rick Reeno

Welterweight contender Brad Solomon (17-0, 7KOs) is ready to get back in the mix. Solomon, inactive since winning a ten round decision over Demetrius Hopkins last March, has signed a contract with influential manager James Prince.

According to Prince, former four division world champion Roy Jones Jr. will be training Solomon. Jones has been using his vast experience to assist younger fighters. In addition to Solomon, Jones recently started working with Kendall Holt.

Solomon, 28-years-old, is likely going to sign a promotional agreement with Top Rank. Standing at 5'11 and displaying a good skill set, Solomon has key wins over Hopkins, Kenny Galarza, Ray Robinson and several others.

Plan are in motion to have Solomon return on July 7th at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California. The event is headlined by an HBO televised doubleheader, featuring Nonito Donaire vs. Jeffrey Mathebula and Brandon Rios vs. Mauricio Herrera.

For me the big news is that Roy Jones seems to be becoming a trainer, something he's very capable of being. He knows boxing, and his analysis of fighters is very good. I don't know if he'll be an analyst-trainer…

Wouldn't mind seeing him fight Kendall Holt. Than, someone like Mike Jones or something.

Good news! Just in time for him to shake off the rust if there is any and chase down a Bradley or Jones kind of fighter. He already has Hopkins and Robinson on his record...LOL
