Light heavyweight champ Calzaghe set to face Jones on Sept. 20
When Wales' Joe Calzaghe defeated Bernard Hopkins for the light heavyweight championship April 19 in Las Vegas in his first fight in the United States, there was one spectator perhaps more interested than anyone else inside the Thomas & Mack Center.Roy Jones Jr., the former undisputed light heavyweight champion and pound-for-pound king, was ringside working as an analyst for the British radio broadcast of the bout. At the postfight news conference, Calzaghe said he might fight only one more time before retiring and wanted it to be against Jones.
