Jones Jr. to fight Green
SYDNEY -- Eight-time world champion Roy Jones Jr. will fight Australia's Danny Green in Sydney on Dec. 2 in the American's first professional fight on foreign soil.
The IBO world cruiserweight title will be on the line, with the 40-year-old Jones trying to add that belt to a career that includes titles in divisions ranging from middleweight to heavyweight. His career record is 54 wins, 40 by knockout, and five losses since 1989.
Green won the IBO cruiserweight title in Biloxi, Miss., last month with a victory over Argentina's Julio Cesar Dominguez on the undercard to Jones' NABO light heavyweight championship win over Jeff Lacy.
