SIMFEROPOL, October 15. /TASS/. Crimean Sports Minister Georgy Shestak invited on Thursday legendary US boxer Roy Jones Jr. — recipient of a Russian passport last month — to further his deepening ties with Russia by opening a boxing school on the peninsula's territory.
"Tell Roy Jones to come to me and discuss this issue," Shestak told TASS. "Of course, if this is not a joke," he said, reflecting on Jones' announced intention to launch such a project.
Heavyweight world champion Jones Jr. was granted Russian citizenship by President Vladimir Putin in September. The boxer met Russia's head of state a month before in Crimea’s Sevastopol, telling the president he wanted to become a Russian citizen.
Putin agreed to help the boxer if he connected his future life with Russia. Jones' school plans followed soon after.
