PLAYERS: Roy Jones Jr.
Y’all musta forgot or wanted to forget that Roy Jones is still fighting. Like most older fighters, he has to go international to make any money, so he is headed off to Moscow. Jones, who turns 45 in January and has not fought since June 2012, was scheduled to face Bobby Gunn in a 12-round cruiserweight fight on Dec. 18 in Bethlehem, Pa., but that fight is off and Jones will instead head to Moscow to face Zine Eddine Benmakhlouf of France instead, Jones announced on Tuesday. “I told Bobby that I would fight him,” Jones said. “I meant it then and mean it now. On Saturday, John told me that they were still trying to make changes to the contract, but that he could make a deal with Vlad, so I told him that the first one to close a deal was where I was gonna go and Russia won.”
