Default Roy Jones Jr issues challenge to Lateef Kayode

Future hall of famer and living legend, Roy Jones Jr wants a shot at the IBO cruiserweight title. Jones told 8CN this evening that he would like to fight Lateef Kayode of Nigeria for the vacated title belt. Kayode fought the former IBO champion Antonio Tarver for this same title but the fight ended up in a draw.


Tarver would then test positive for steroids after the fight vacating the title. Roy Jones is coming off of back to back wins over Max Alexander and Polish brawler Pawel Glazewski.


Jones told 8CN that not only would he fight Kayode for the belt, but he would fight “anyone” for the belt.


Jones shared his thoughts on Kayode this evening, “ I think he is a great prospect and he showed a lot of promise against Tarver. He is a strong and dangerous puncher, but that's the kind of fighter a champ must conquer.”
Long time Jones fan but I don't think he would have enough to keep Lateef off him since Jones power hasn't seem to carry him in the CW division. Plus Jones mobility seems a lot worse and showed his last fight by laying on the ropes again. Something he didn't do in his fight with Max Alexander.
