The legendary boxer capitalized on his fame and released his first album in 2001 called Round One: The Album. He released his tracks “And Still” and “Y’all Must’ve Forgot” to mixed reviews.
Despite being an active boxer during the early 2000s, Jones formed his rap group Body Head Bangerz and released the cult classic “Can’t Be Touched” with the rap collective.
“Can’t Be Touched” definitely sent waves throughout the industry and is considered one of the most famous songs ever released by a boxer. The album reached the Top 40 in the official charts. However, the legendary boxer hasn’t recorded an album ever since.
Jones has certainly shifted his focus towards boxing and is set to make a highly anticipated return against Mike Tyson. Jones last fought in 2018 where he secured the WBU cruiserweight championship. The fight has come under scrutiny due to both fighters being over the age of 50. However, the recent training videos of both fighters suggest otherwise.
Jones looks in great shape and has posted videos on social media, displaying his immense skill. This fight is set for 8 rounds and is sure to be a close fight between the two legends.
