Roy Jones Jr. and Kimbo Slice In Talks to Fight at the End of the Year

According to Jamaica Observer, Roy Jones Jr. and Kimbo Slice are in talks to step into the ring and face each other at the end of the year. In the newspaper's report, the fight would take place at Montego Bay in Jamaica with the event also available to people in the United States via Pay Per View.

While the bout is reportedly being billed as "Beauty and the Beast," it could also be seen as a match between two fighters in two different points in their careers. At 43 years old, Jones Jr. is in the twilight of his boxing days and with retirement looming, RJ may just be looking for one last main event victory before calling it quits. Meanwhile, with only five professional fights under his belt (5-0-0), Kimbo is searching for an upgrade in competition.

If the bout does come to fruition, will you be watching?
