Roy Jones: “Unlike Mayweather, I have always tried to win all the belts.”


Ex-world champion in four weight categories, American Roy Jones Jr., continuing to respond to criticism from the eminent compatriot Floyd Mayweather, explained why he agreed to an exhibition duel with Mike Tyson.

“I wasn’t like him when I fought. I went into the ring and won every possible belt in the division where I fought. Mike did the same thing because we are old school fighters. We’re not going to choose. No, we will try to take everything. …

I don’t care what the belt is. If this guy walks with the title and he’s in my weight class, then I want him. And I don’t want to be wearing a trinket, I need a champion fight. And if it doesn’t mean anything to him, then it matters to me, “Jones said.
