Michael B. Jordan Trying To Take His Boxing Skills OFF The Big Screen?
First Adonis Creed VS Viktor Drago and now Michael B Jordan VS Roy Jones Jr??? HOLD UP, what did we miss?
We ALL saw MJB in Creed and his GLO UP for Killmonger in Black Panter, there’s no denying he is JACKED. Not only can he play the part, but he looks the part too. He’s built like a real boxer—umm speaking of, have you seen those arms tho?
Jordan caught up with TMZ and when they asked what REAL like boxer he would want to fight, he says that he thinks he could take Roy Jones Jr. in a fight. He was clearly joking and even said that Jones Jr. would knock him out easily in his prime, BUT he thinks now since the veteran boxer is old, the actor thinks he can hold his own:
Well, Jones Jr. doesn’t feel the same. TMZ also talked to the OG, and he says he doesn’t think his age would stop him at all, “If Michael B wants this real, contact Roy Jones Jr. and we’ll make it happen.” Now who’s to say who would win, he even admits, “I know he’s probably in better condition because he’s younger … but I’m a vet. I’m an old school vet.” Hmmm its a toss up…check out the Jones clip below and decide for yourself!
