CAN ROY JONES BE -- DOLLAR-FOR-DOLLAR -- BOXING'S TOP STAR?
Published December 5, 1995
The publicist for IBF Super Middleweight Champion Roy Jones Jr. (the "world's best fighter, pound-for-pound" according to Wallace Matthews of the N.Y. POST) says Jones has several non- fight deals in the works. Jones, the only fighter to have a deal with Nike, is getting more exposure these days. According to Greg Fritz, Jones' publicist, the boxer has already appeared on Fox's "Mad TV," on a movie on the UPN network, and has been in an HBO pilot. Fritz added that in coming months, Jones will have a Nike commercial out and that he is working on securing a deal to put Jones on a Wheaties box (N.Y. POST, 12/5).
