Former four division world champion Roy Jones Jr. (62-9, 45KOs) finally has an opponent for the UR Fight internet pay-per-view on March 20th at the Celebrity Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona.
As previously reported, Jones will be the headliner of the card, where a lucky fan would have the opportunity to win a $100,000 if they are able to beat the former champ.
Fans were required to submit videos to UR Fight. The submitted video had each fan/fighter explain why UR Fight should select them to fight Jones.
The selected opponent is unknown 33-year-old MMA fighter Vyron Phillips, who has a 5-3 record in MMA. Phillips will have the opportunity to win the biggest payday of his career if he is able to beat the former champ.
The last time the 47-year-old Jones was in the ring, he was brutally knocked out in four rounds in December by former WBO cruiserweight champion Enzo Maccarinelli in Russia.
The internet pay-per-view will have four main bouts, each in a different genre to attract a variety of different fans.
MMA fighters Chael Sonnen and Michael Bisping will battle in a grappling match.
Former WWE superstars Kurt Angle and Rey Mysterio Jr. will have a pro wrestling match.
UFC legends Tank Abbott and Dan Severn will clash in an MMA rules rematch. Abbott replaced Ken Shamrock, who was originally announced to face Severn.
