Jones confirms Calzaghe clash
by Mark Doyle, 27 June 2008

Roy Jones Jr. has revealed that his proposed bout with Joe Calzaghe is likely to go ahead on September 20.

Two-weight world champion Calzaghe has made no secret of the fact that he hopes to bring the curtain down on his illustrious career with a mouthwatering clash with Jones and, according to the American, the deal is all but done.

“Calzaghe and I are going to be fighting this fall,” Jones declared.

“They are holding September 20 or November 15 for us, but right now it’s looking like September 20.”

Calzaghe unified the super-middleweight division with a thrilling points win over Mikkel Kessler last November before stepping up to light-heavyweight and defeating arguably the division’s number one in Bernard Hopkins earlier this year.

Meanwhile, Jones Jr., who was once consider the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world, has gotten his career back on track with three successive victories, the most notable of which being his points win over Felix Trinidad in January
