SEVASTOPOL, October 20. /TASS/. Legendary US boxer Roy Jones Jr., recipient of a Russian passport last month, will open a boxing school in the Crimean city of Sevastopol, governor’s press secretary Kirill Moskalenko told TASS on Tuesday.
"Sevastopol Governor Sergei Menyailo backed the initiative on the American boxing star to open a school," Moskalenko said. "Roy Jones Jr. will engage in popularizing sports in the city which is an important event for us."
"We do not have any exact dates, but the plan will be fulfilled," he said. "The boxing school under the guidance of Roy Jones Jr. will be opened for anyone willing."
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.
