52-year-old Jones last November had an exhibition fight with 54-year-old former undisputed world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson. The fight ended in a draw. After this bout both athletes announced their desire to hold another meeting.

“I am trying to be a coach, but, apparently, for now, they want to see me in the role of both a coach and a boxer. So I don’t know yet - if there is a good offer, I will accept it, and if not, then I will remain a coach. I like it. I don't think I will have another fight with Tyson. Now he is going to fight Holyfield. I would like to fight Anderson Silva or MMA legend Fedor, it would be a great show fight. Let's see how it goes.

"I think I finished my career, but if something good turns up... Actually, I got a call today about the fight with Glenn McCrory in Dubai. They pay a lot of money there, so we'll see what happens,” Jones said.
