Roy Jones Jr recently revealed that he is training Jermall Charlo and preparing him for future events.

“I'm working with Jermall Charlo right now, and the hardest thing is to teach him and buy into the different things that you're teaching,” Jones Jr said as quoted by “Because when someone's used to winning a certain way, they want to stick with that way, but it's going really well.

I think his mind got a little side tracked and he got off the right path for a minute. My goal is to get him back on the right path because when he's on the right path, he's a monster and hard to beat”.
