Former great Jones reveals his exit strategy in the latest edition of Boxing News

FORMER pound-for-pound king Roy Jones Jnr could vie for a world title in a fifth weight class later this year.

The 46-year-old has won world honours at every weight from middle through to heavyweight, except in the cruiserweight division. However, he plans to make it a full set before the end of 2015 and told Boxing News that he may retire soon after.

“I should be fighting for the WBA Super world cruiserweight title in December, after that I may do one or two more [fights] then ride off into the sunset,” he told Boxing News.
