It seems that between TMZ and Vitor Belfour they have been successful in getting Roy Jones Jr’s attention in facing the MMA hall of famer.
41-Year Old Belfort called out Jones Jr in a recent Media event, saying “One fight I’d really love is me against Roy Jones Jr. Roy, wherever you are, I wanna come challenge you for a boxing match, but with this condition: I’m gonna be able to dirty box with you.”
TMZ playing the role of matchmaker decided to put the idea to Jones Jr himself who was ready and waiting with a reply to the proposition put to him.
“This is what I do for a living. Y’all must’ve forgot. That’s who I am. I love a battle. I love a challenge. So, if that’s what you want, that’s what you get. Ain’t like you gotta ask me twice.”
Picking up his last victory in February 2018, Jones went on to give a timeframe for any such fight to happen
“Well, I would like 8 weeks, cause I like to get right. I need 2 extra weeks just to make sure I can showboat. But, 6 weeks, I can whip you.”
Before in typical Jones Jr fashion, he went on to give Belfort a message for what he can expect.
“I got nothing but the utmost respect for you. You were a helluva MMA fighter. You one of the best of all time. But, when it comes to boxing, this is what I do. I’m the ruler. I’m the king of this thing. Ya understand me?”
“Since Muhammad Ali is not on Earth anymore, I don’t think there’s nothing ever on this Earth as bad as I am with these hands.”
Be careful what you wish for … you just might get it.
