Roy Jones Jr: I’ll Whoop Vitor Belfort In Special Rules Boxing Match



Dirty Box

Aside from commending the Asian mixed martial arts organisation, ‘The Phenom’ revealed his long-time desire to fight light heavyweight boxer Roy Jones Jr. Continuing with his statement, Belfort called him out to a special-rules ‘dirty boxing’ match.

“I’m going to be in your face the whole time so it’s going to be a different boxing match. So that would be a very fun thing to do.”


Responding to the callout during an interview with TMZ Sports, Jones said Belfort is getting what he’s asking for.

“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,” the 50-year-old boxer said.

Jones then laid out how much time he needs to ‘whip’ the mixed martial arts legend inside the squared circle.

“Well, I would like eight weeks, cause I like to get right. I need two extra weeks just to make sure I can showboat. But, six weeks, I can whip you,” he continued.

“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.”
