Roy Jones Jr in talks for fight with Collins

FORMER middleweight, super middleweight, light heavyweight and heavyweight  champion Roy Jones Jr is lining up a fight with Irish great Steve Collins.

Jones, considered by many the best boxer of the 1990s, is looking to fight the former WBO middleweight and super-middleweight champion in the UK in April, he told the BBC.

Collins, 48, who last fought in 1997, said the biggest regret of his career was not facing the American legend. “He was afraid of me,” Collins told TalkSPORT.

“I don’t think he’s a coward, but at the time he was.” Jones, 44, told the BBC: “I’ve spoken to Steve and I said ‘I don’t duck or dive nobody’, so it’s a very big possibility.”
