Jones Jr. against Sheika?

Looks like four-division world champion Roy Jones Jr. will return against Omar Sheika in a March PPV event. According to Jones’ hometown newspaper the Pensecola News Journal, the bout could take place March 21 at the Pensacola Civic Center. The 40-year-old Jones (52-5, 38 KOs) would be making an unusually quick comeback coming off his loss to Joe Calzaghe in November, while former world title challenger Sheika (27-8, 18 KOs) is taking only his second fight since 2005.
