Roy Jones Jr. Challenges Actor Michael B. Jordan To Boxing Match (VIDEO)
Michael B. Jordan stars as Adonis Johnson, son of the famous Rocky character, Apollo Creed, in the newest edition to the Rocky franchise, Creed II.
I know you’re wondering how we got to this point. Let’s start it from the beginning.
After meeting up with Jordan outside of a nightclub on Saturday night, TMZ Sports asked if there were any real boxers the actor could beat, and he was quick to respond with “Roy Jones Jr.”
Naturally, TMZ has since caught up with Jones Jr. to get his take on the matter, and he seems more than willing to make it happen for real.
“First thing is, you know I never ducked a fight in my life, I don’t duck nothing,” Roy Jones Jr. tells TMZ. “If Michael B. wants this real, contact Roy Jones Jr. and we will make it happen,” he added, stressing that Jordan knows where to find him if he’s for real about the whole thing. “I know he can’t beat me still. I know he’s probably in better condition because he’s younger…. But I’m an old school vet.”
Jones Jr. has been boxing professionally for about 30 years and even won a silver medal at the 1988 Summer Olympics when he was still considered an amateur. In 75 career fights, Jones Jr boasts a 66-9 record, including 47 KOs.
