Despite being 46 years old, well past his prime and coming off of a brutal knockout in his last fight, Roy Jones Jr (62-9, 45 KOs) does not have retirement in site at this moment.
Even with critics, friends and colleagues calling for Jones to hang up his gloves, he still insists that he will box again. Jones said he is willing to fight any boxer and even suggested a rematch with Enzo Maccarinelli, the boxer who defeated Jones on December 12 via a fourth round knockout.
“I do not pay attention to what people are saying. If you’re going to try to respond to offensive words or justify actions, then you will spend your whole life doing that,” said Jones. “My motivation is inside, not outside, I know I lost, but in fact it was the real victory. The people supported me, I saw it. I am grateful to [Russia] for having met these people here. Every time I [lose a fight], I want to hold a rematch. I hate to lose. I have no fear. I am willing to fight any boxer. But it all depends on my family and on my health.”
