Former boxing world champion Roy Jones Jr. visits boxing club in Pine Bluff



Pine Bluff, Arkansas – Former boxing world champion Roy Jones Jr. was in Pine Bluff for business on Thursday and took the time to stop by the Merrill Center to meet boxers from the Gloves not Guns boxing club just days after fighting Mike Tyson in an exhibition match.

Jones took extra time to take a photo with Gloves not Guns’ 9-year-old National Champion Darrion White.

Afterwards Jones Jr. said that using gloves over guns shows how a person truly responds to adversity.

Gloves not Guns coach Albert Brewer said it was an honor to have Jones Jr. come speak with his kids.
