Roy Jones Jr has confirmed that a fight with Tommy Fury could be on the cards.
Fury has defeated influencer boxers Jake Paul and KSI and it looks like his next bout could be against Roy Jones Jr.
Speaking to Betway, the American has revealed they could fight in the early part of next year.
“There is truth to that, we spoke in Saudi Arabia because of the fact that John Fury was with Tyson, said Jones Jr.
“Me and Fury family, we have a lot of history. I was one of the people who told Tyson five or six years back that he could come back and beat all of them and that’s what he has done.
He continued: “To be in the ring with somebody from the social media era and have a big fight with Tommy Fury, I may not be who I was but to be in with against someone from the YouTube era, it’s a different type of thing and can captivate the audience. I think it’s a good thing.
“The fight would have to happen early next year. He’s definitely a legitimate fighter, he’s not a bad fighter at all and he comes from a family of fighters. Sometimes he doesn’t take fighters as seriously as he should. It’s like Tyson, he didn’t take Francis Ngannou as seriously as he should but when he is fighting someone like Oleksandr Usyk it’ll be different.”
