It took Roy Jones Jr (56-8, 40 KOs) two days to arrive from Poland to the US soil because of airline troubles, but the former four-division champ has no problem of coming back.

“I’m not a youngster in this sport so battling Glazewski wasn’t really in my plans. It just happened that way,” said Jones in a Fightnews.com interview. “However I do take my hat off to him and applaud him for a great effort. But at the end of the day, I really want a shot at the cruiserweight title. But I did promise a trifecta, so if the fans wanna use #2 up on Glazewski, I’ll have to consider it. I want the Polish public satisfied. I came to battle Kostecki but I refused to not give the fans a fight. So if I must concentrate on Glazewski and beat him more convincingly, that’s not a problem either. But I’d rather move on towards my goal.”

This goal, after beating WBC #8 Pawel Glazewski (17-1, 4 KOs) is the only belt Jones still wants to have in his extensive collection, the WBC cruiserweight title which belongs to another Polish fighter, Krzysztof “Diablo” Wlodarczyk (46-2, 33 KOs).
