In the Russian language Roy Jr. announced to the World, “I am Russian”

No less a personage than Russian President Vladimir Putin signed the decree following upon a meeting in the Crimea.

It is now official Roy Jones Jr. is a Russian citizen.

The four-division champion widely regarded as one of the finest boxers of his generation was presented his Russian passport in a ceremony on Tuesday at the Federal Migration Service’s offices in Moscow.

“I am Russian,” Jones, 46, said in Russian.

“Thank you, Vladimir Putin. I’m really glad to have become a Russian citizen. Russia’s such a welcoming country and many people in the world want to request Russian citizenship.

President Putin had signed a decree to grant citizenship to Roy Jones Jr.’ in September after the boxer announced his intention to apply during an August meeting with the Russian President in Crimea.

President Putin granted the request on the grounds that Jones “intends to spend a significant part of his life working in Russia.”

Roy Jones Jr., a native of Pensacola, Florida, represented the United States at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul. He won a silver medal when he was cheated out of a Gold Medal by corrupt officials.

It was amateur boxing at its worst.

Roy Jones met with President Putin in August to request Russian citizenship.

‘Nice’ people.

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND THOUGHT?

Three of Roy Jones’ past nine fights have taken place on Russian soil. He added, “This is one of the happiest days of my life.”

Roy Jones Jr. is a native of Pensacola, Florida, and represented the United States at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, where he won a silver medal after a highly disputed loss to Park Si-Hun in a light middleweight final that saw him land nearly three times as many punches as his opponent.

The uproar that followed left an indelible toxic stain of corruption that will never be forgotten.

As an exceptional professional, Roy Jr. won world championships at middleweight, super middleweight, light heavyweight and heavyweight. After a 49-1 start with the lone defeat coming on a disqualification, he lost seven of 12 fights between 2004 and 2011.

His record is 62-8-45 Kos.

Roy is a boxing analyst for HBO.


Vladimir Khryunov, Jones’ promotional partner in
 Russia, said in August that Jones has no plans of renouncing his American citizenship.

It will be interesting to see the reaction from the USA, and elsewhere warmongers and those who believe a devastating Third World War is the only hope to find a solution to end the devastating financial crisis. ~
