A proposed cruiserweight match-up between undefeated Lateef Kayode (18-0-1, 14KOs) of Hollywood, CA, by way of Lagos, Nigeria, and multi-time world champion Roy Jones Jr. (56-8, 40KOs) of Pensacola, Florida, might be in jeopardy after Kayode allegedly struck trainer Jesse Arevalo at the Powerhouse Gym on Wednesday night. According to Arevalo, Kayode was sparring Malik Scott when Arevalo, who until recently worked with Kayode, made an offhand remark. Kayode threatened Arevalo and after taking off his boxing gloves, struck Arevalo on the cheek and neck. A large number of onlookers were on hand to witness the episode. Arevalo expressed to Fightnews that he would be pursuing criminal charges against Kayode which might put the undefeated fighter’s near future in limbo.
