Roy Jones, Jr., fresh off his 12-round unanimous decision over Felix Trinidad, who hasn't won a fight since 2004, has made it known that he is looking for even smaller challenges, and challengers too!
Trinidad, who has never weighed over 160 pounds in his professional career, weighed nearly 170 pounds when he faced Jones. Yesterday, Jones, in a release issued by his promoter, stated he is "...ready to take on all comers in the light heavyweight or super middleweight divisions and beyond."
"Let's see, he named middleweights Kelly Pavlik and Jermain Taylor, super middleweight Joe Calzaghe, light heavyweight Bernard Hopkins, who has been asking for a rematch for over 10 years, and junior middleweight Oscar De La Hoya; funny how big old 'Superman' doesn't want to pick on someone his own size, like the reigning WBC light heavyweight champion...me," said undefeated world champion Chad Dawson, who celebrates the one-year anniversary of his WBC light heavyweight title reign on February 3.
Dawson's promoter, Gary Shaw added: "Chad doesn't have to send out misleading statements that he's faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive or can leap tall buildings in a single bound. Chad is just stating fact. Until Roy steps up to fight for the world light heavyweight title, the only thing he has in common with Superman is being a cartoon."
