Former four division world champion Roy Jones Jr. hopes Ovill McKenzie wins the IBF world title this weekend so he could face him, or else he will go with Enzo Maccarinelli.
Jones (62-8, 45KOs) is hoping to land a shot at a cruiserweight title and resting his hopes on McKenzie beating IBF champion Victor Ramirez in Buenos Aires. If McKenzie wins, Jones would fight him later in the year in Russia.
Failing that, Jones says he would like to take on Welshman Maccarinelli, a former cruiserweight world champion himself, who bounced back from last year's defeat to Juergen Braehmer with a first-round stoppage of Gyorgy Novak in March.
Jones has won eight fights in a row since getting knocked out by Denis Lebedev. He captured world titles at middleweight, super middleweight, light heavyweight and even jumped to the biggest ranks possible to win the heavyweight crown in 2003.
Jones said to Sky Sports: "McKenzie is a very strong puncher, a very strong guy. Sometimes, God blessed people for a reason, and he is such a good guy, you would rather see him benefit than anyone else.
"If it doesn't work out, then we will go with Enzo if we have to. Enzo is a good guy too, I've nothing against Enzo. I will fight either one of them, I don't really care. I just want to fight for a cruiserweight title."
