After Michael B. Jordan — star of Creed II — bragged about with the ability to maintain hisself in opposition to ex-champ Roy Jones Jr., it seems that the 49-year-old boxer needs all of the smoke.
“If Michael B. wants this real, contact Roy Jones Jr. and we’ll make it happen,” Jones stated in a video posted by TMZ.
To his credit score, Jordan did concede that he’d have been a lightweight snack for the previous champ in his prime. While the 31-year-old actor has been coaching a number of years for his function as Adonis Creed within the latest movies within the Rocky/Creed franchise, Jones insists that even in his present state, successful can be no difficulty.
“I know he can’t beat me still,” he defined. “I know he’s probably in better condition because he’s younger… but I’m an old school vet.”
The veteran boxer added that he’d be prepared for the struggle with solely 4 or 5 weeks of coaching. The ball is in Jordan’s court.
