MOSCOW, October 20. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin will not handout personally the Russian passport to boxer Roy Jones Jr., Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists on Tuesday.

"As far as I know, no ceremonies are planned. Such event is not in the presidential schedule," Kremlin spokesman said. It is expected that migration services will most likely hand the passport to the boxer.

On September 12, Putin granted citizenship to US legendary boxer Roy Jones Jr.

The boxer met the Russian president on August 19 in Crimea’s Sevastopol and told Putin he wanted to become a Russian citizen. Putin agreed to assist if the boxer connects his future life with Russia. On August 20 in Yalta (Crimea), the boxer filed an application for the Russian citizenship.

Roy Jones Jr., born in 1969, has been viewed as the world’s top boxer regardless of weight category. He began his professional boxing career in 1989 and won world titles in four weight categories.

He scored a unique achievement in winning world titles in the middleweight, super middleweight, light heavyweight and heavyweight classes. In all, he has 62 wins and 8 losses to his name, among them taking silver at the 1988 Summer Olympic Games in Seoul, South Korea.
