There are no brakes on the Roy Jones train, apparently.
The former four-division champ's endless quest for a cruiserweight title shows no signs of slowing down, as Jones has expressed a desire to face Ovill McKenzie should "The Upsetter" lift the IBF belt from Victor Ramirez this Friday.
Via Sky Sports:
Jones said: "McKenzie is a very strong puncher, a very strong guy. Sometimes, God blessed people for a reason, and he is such a good guy, you would rather see him benefit than anyone else.
"If it doesn't work out, then we will go with Enzo if we have to. Enzo is a good guy too, I've nothing against Enzo.
"I will fight either one of them, I don't really care. I just want to fight for a cruiserweight title."
McKenzie (25-12, 13 KO) is a tempting target, as a win over Ramirez would make him one of the division's few champions without the kind of punching power to moonlight as Roland Emmerich's special effects department. Still probably a bad idea for the 46-year-old Jones (62-8, 45 KO) to fight him.
Maccarinelli (39-7, 31 KO) wouldn't net Roy a title (God willing), but the Welshman has a name and a chin made of the same material as Audley Harrison's fight-or-flight response. I suppose it's not the worst matchup that could be made for the Unofficial Senior Tour.
Were I not egregiously white, I might refer Roy to the "when will you ****** learn" bit of his hit single, but I'll just settle for saying this whole cruiserweight belt thing is still an awful idea.
