Roy Jr. Jones described his childhood in Sports Illustrated : "After a while I didn't care about gettin' hurt or dyin' anymore.
I was in pain all day, every day, I was so scared of my father. He'd pull up in his truck and start lookin' for something I'd done wrong.
There was no escape, no excuse, no way out of nothin'. Getting' hurt or dyin' might've been better than the life I was livin'.

On August 19, , Roy Jones Jr. Jones stated that he often visited Russia for business activity, and a passport would avoid inconvenient rides.
Jones was known for his unique and unorthodox fighting style that defied many of boxing's oldest traditions.
His style relied heavily on his great hand speed, quickness, reflexes, ring IQ and knockout power which were often the deciding factors in most of his fights during his prime.
He had such hand speed that he could often throw hooks in rapid succession. He was nicknamed "Captain Hook", because he would deliver four or five hooks in a row from different angles.
But he would also mix it up with a variety of punches to keep his opponents guessing. Jones' style often saw him with his hands down and relying on head movement to evade his opponent's punches.
He used his cat-like reflexes to bob and weave, slip and counter his opponent. Jones was a master at this sort of style, and used this to his advantage by sticking his chin out to bait his opponents into hitting him, only to pull back and counter the off-balance opponent with his own punches.
He also rarely led with the jab and instead was known for leading with leaping left hooks or the right cross.
Immediately after his second fight with Montell Griffin, Former heavyweight champion George Foreman remarked that Jones did not need a jab to setup his punches due to his extraordinary quickness and that he is probably the only boxer in history he could say that about.
He also been quoted as saying that Jones, "hits like a heavyweight and moves like a lightweight. Jones is also said to have integrated cockfighting into his boxing style, often using exaggerated feints to catch his opponents off-balance.

Roy was much faster. In , High Frequency Boxing's John DiMaio wrote "The early evidence points toward the real possibility that Jones is the greatest talent this sport has ever seen.
His skill so dwarfs that of his nearest ranked opposition In , Jones formed a group, Body Head Bangerz and released an album. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
