JONES JR OPEN TO THE POSSIBILITY OF FACING BELFORT

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.
