SparBar Inc., the original pioneer of SparBar™ boxing, Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and fitness equipment, welcomed Roy Jones Jr. to his new position as part of their Committee of Athletic Advisors as a Board of Athletics Director.
Roy Jones Jr. was named "Fighter of the Decade" for the 1990s by the Boxing Writers Association of America and is a one-time holder of the WBC, WBA, IBF, IBO, NABF, WBF, and IBA light heavyweight championships; a record seven belts at the same time. He is also the first former Middleweight champion to win a Heavyweight title in over 100 years and holds the record for the most wins in unified light heavyweight title bouts in boxing history. Considered by many to be one of the best boxers of all time, pound for pound, Jones was known for possessing exceptional hand speed, athleticism, movement and reflexes, all attributes highlighted and honed by SparBar™.
