Former four-division world boxing champion Roy Jones Jr. will take Russian citizenship “in the very near future,” his promoter Vlad Hrunov told R-Sport Monday.

Jones declared that he would love to have a Russian passport in the run-up to his points victory over Zine Eddine Benmakhlouf in Moscow on Saturday. It was unclear at that time whether the 44-year-old was serious in his remarks.

Hrunov confirmed the boxe’s wish, however, and said that he was trying to set up a bout in Russia between Jones and mixed martial arts legend Anderson Silva.
