“I don’t care who they will put in front of me – I’m a professional fighter, this is what I do – I fight to win,” said four-division world champion legendary Roy Jones Jr (55-8, 40 KOs) during the final press conference in Warsaw before fighting…and this is the question – who? Jones Jr. supposed to fight #4 ranked by WBC light heavyweight David Kostecki (39-1, 28 KOs) this Saturday, but Kostecki has been arrested and instead preparing for the fight of his life, he watched Jones’ press conference from a prison cell. His promoters are still hoping that Kostecki (who was supposed to go jail next month – but certainly not before the June 30 day of the fight) will be granted a temporary release by Polish authorities and he will be in the ring on June 30. If not, Roy will fight undefeated #8 WBC ranked light heavyweight Pawel Glazewski (17-0, 4 KOs), who vows to do everything he can to win the biggest fight of his carrer. The PPV event in Lodz is getting a lot of press and almost spurs a national debate about the timing of Kostecki’s imprisonment. The card billed as “the most controversial boxing match in Poland,” will also have two more well known US names: four-time heavyweight challenger Jameel McCline (41-11, 24 KOs), who will test the very highly rated new talent on the heavyweight scene, 22-year old southpaw Artur Szpilka (11-0, 9 KOs), and former world champion Nate Campbell (35-9, 26 KOs), who will challenge Poland’s Krzysztof Szot (16-2, 5 KOs).
