Recently, Roy Jones Jr., who was in a chat with Boxing Social, revealed how can the ex-champ end up on the winning vertical.

He said, ‘‘I don’t know, but if he goes out and depends on his punch again, then he won’t win the fight. But if he goes out and implies some of his skills that he’s learned from his new trainer, then maybe he’ll win the fight.”

More than anyone else, ‘The Bronze Bomber’ has his vision clearly set on seeking revenge from the British boxing star. The pair first met each other inside the ring in 2018, and this scuffle ended with a draw.

Later, they locked horns in 2020 again, wherein the Alabama native succumbed to his first career loss.
