Roy Jones, UFC Reach Three-Year Streaming Agreement

UFC and Roy Jones Jr. (RJJ) Boxing Promotions have reached a new agreement to live stream up to 72 professional boxing events over the next three years on UFC FIGHT PASS.
 
The inaugural event in the RJJ Boxing on UFC FIGHT PASS series will stream January 31, starting at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT, live from Viejas Casino & Resort in Alpine, California. WBO #2-rated world title challenger, "Mighty" Aston Palicte (24-2-1, 20 KOs), and unbeaten WBO #4 ranked Jose "Chiquiro" Martinez (20-0-2, 13 KOs) will headline in the 12-round World Boxing Organization Junior Bantamweight Title Eliminator.

Roy Jones Jr., a multi-time world champion and future Hall of Fame boxer, formed the Las Vegas-based promotional company, RJJ Boxing Promotions, three years ago with Las Vegas entrepreneur Keith Veltre, developing a growing stable of fighters in a short period of time.
 
"I was elated when my partner, Keith Veltre, told me he had started talking with UFC," Jones said. "This is just the beginning stages of a long, lucrative partnership between these two brands."
 
"Roy Jones Jr. Boxing Promotions will give us competitive, compelling fights to stream to our FIGHT PASS subscribers around the world," said UFC Dana White. "This agreement allows us to enhance our roster of combat sports while partnering with one of the legendary fighters of all time."
 
"I couldn't be happier to bring together the biggest name in boxing, Roy Jones, with the biggest name in combat sports, UFC," said Veltre. "I love that the UFC is allowing us to be creative, so expect to see prospects, tournaments, title fights and more in this series."

If i'm following... does this mean that a return of the HBO commentary team is plausible through his production company?

I can see it now, Roy Jones coming out of retirement for one more fight, to boost subscriptions to one of those events...
