Jones, will fight August 15th vs (TBA), headline Knockout Season 2’s live fight card at the Foxwoods Hotel and Casino and will be broadcast live on Fuse/NuvoTV. Then again August 29th.

Jones, who has captured world titles as a middleweight, super middleweight, light heavyweight and heavyweight, is working his way towards a title shot at cruiserweight to complete the quinfecta. He is also scheduled to fight on August 29th (against Danny Santiago in Phillipsburg, St Maarten) and said that he loves keeping a busy schedule. “I am going to fight on Knockout on the 15th and then again on the 29th. I did two (fights) in March and I am liking how it feels so I am going to do two again in August and see how that feels. If I like how it feels then I will do it again maybe two or three weeks apart,” said Jones.

The end goal for Jones is to capture a cruiserweight title, which would make him the only fighter in history to win belts at every weight class from middleweight through heavyweight.
