Roy to focus on promoting!
Roy Jones Jr. says he plans to sign the world's top amateurs, including members of the 2004 boxing team to promotional contracts. "I understand the boxing business and I'm proud of the fact that I've always been responsible for my own career and was able to make the right choices," said Jones. "I know what it feels like to come out of the Olympics and not just want to fight, but to get the opportunity to fight the best. I know what it takes to become a champion. I'm here to pass that along, improve the fight game and make sure everyone wins." Jones' promotional firm, Square Ring Inc., has already had several meetings with fight manager James Prince, in regard to promoting Prince's stable of fighters, including Olympic gold medalist Andre Ward.
