Rounding out the unusual card will be a special boxing match between Roy Jones JR, who has held World Titles in numerous different divisions taking on a “Fan” with a prize of 100k on the line if the fan is able to win the bout or knock Roy Jones JR out.

According UR Fights official Facebook page the company has already received “thousands upon thousands” of entries for the contest and are in the process of reviewing them all.  One entrant into the unusual contest that many Canadian wrestling fans would be happy to see take the boxing legends challenge is Devon “HANNIBAL” Nicholson, who posted an entry video this week on his “The HANNIBAL TV” YouTube Channel which has been getting a lot of reaction.
