By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing (July 30, 2008)  
In a recent article by popular boxing scribe Tim Smith of the New York Daily News, Heavyweight Champion of the World Wladimir Klitschko is quoted discussing many things including fighters he'd like to fight. Klitschko was out with a small group of reporters at Gallagher's Steakhouse this past Monday afternoon. An interesting topic that was hit on was a rumor of Roy Jones Jr. wanting to move up to heavyweight and fight Klitschko.

Klitschko who is no stranger to being called out by other boxers from other weight divisions (see David Haye) stated he'd be a mismatch for Jones Jr, but would fight Jones Jr. anyway if the money was right.

Quoted by Smith, Klitschko stated a fight with Jones Jr. would be a mismatch. Klitschko said: "I think that would be a mismatch." Klitschko did not rule out a fight with Jones Jr., indicating money could make it happen. "Money-wise, financially, if it's going to be exciting, we can think about it," said Klitschko.
