An agreement has been reached for Roy Jones Junior to challenge Glen Johnson for the International Boxing Federation Title on September 25, most probably in Los Angeles or Sacramento. The champion's management team have verbally agreed to a $1million package to defend against the recently defeated pound-for-pound superstar and contracts are expected to be signed this Friday.
The champion's manager Henry Foster pictured with Johnson by Mr Will told SecondsOut on Wednesday: "We pretty much were speaking the same language with Brad Jacobs (who runs Jones's Square Ring organisation) immediately. Everything is verbal right now but we are in agreement for everything and I'm hoping to have the fight signed, sealed, delivered by Friday. It is looking real good and it is a fight we've wanted for Glen for a long time."
Foster said his fighter will be going into the Jones fight to win, not to merely do ok, as so many former RJJ opponents have done. "We are going to win, Jones is not invincible anymore although we respect him more than any other fighter in boxing. He's still the best light heavyweight in the world, one result doesn't change that in my book. But Glen's style of in your face boxing will give Roy problems and of course Roy was knocked out last time.
