Former four division Roy Jones Jr. (56-8, 40KOs) is currently on tour in Russia, performing his music for his Russian fans. There were discussions taking place for a fight between Jones and heavyweight tough man Kimbo Slice (6-0, 5KOs). The two sides explored the fight but Jones doesn't expect it to happen.

"I don't think it will happen. That's something I don't see happening," Jones said.

Jones, 43-years-old, is not going to retire in the near future. He wants to have three more fights and then retire from the sport. After his tour wraps up in Russia, he will start making plans for his next fight.

"I would like to have three more fights. I think that's enough," Jones said.
