Roy Jones Jr. Never Wants To Retire
Former four division world champion Roy Jones Jr. is not looking to hang up his gloves anytime soon.
Jones was on the broadcast team for Saturday Night’s WBO super middleweight fight at Madison Square Garden, and watched Puerto Rican superstar Miguel Cotto enter the ring for the final time as a professional fighter.
Cotto suffered an upset loss by way of a twelve round unanimous decision at the hands of Sadam Ali.
The entire event was a big farewell for Cotto – and after the fight the boxer received a video package that focused on the key points of his career.
Jones, 48 years old, has no interested in a farewell event, farewell videos or anything similar to that. He wants to continue fighting to the very end.
“I don’t want no farewell video. When I’m in the coffin you can talk about my stuff. I don’t want to go, I want to still be fighting and be in the coffin throwing punches at people. I don’t want to go out like that [with a farewell event], that’s their stuff, I don’t do all that.”
Jones won his last three fight since getting knocked out cold by Enzo Maccarinelli in December 2015 in Russia.
The former world champion bounced back in March 2016, and followed up with a win in August of that year and a TKO victory over Bobby Gunn in February of 2017.
