Roy Jones Jr. to promote combination boxing / MMA event in Pensacola, Florida

PRO MMA (http://promma.info) has learned that former pound-for-pound Champion of the World, Roy Jones Jr. plans to promote a combination boxing / MMA event that will air live on pay-per-view on March 21 at the Pensacola Civic Center in Florida.

Never has a combination boxing / MMA card featured such a well known and successful boxer. The 40 year-old Jones will be fighting the relatively unknown Omar Shieka. Jones was last in the ring on November 8, 2008 when he lost a unanimous decision against Joe Calzaghe. Although Jones is getting on up in age, the man has been fighting consistently for 19 straight years.

On the MMA portion of the card, names such as Seth Petruzelli, Bobby Lashley, Roy Nelson, Jeff Monson, and Doug Marshall have been mentioned. It’s not a bad lineup although, Monson’s recent legal issues could potentially keep him from fighting.
