Prince Badi Ajamu hopes to shock Jones on Saturday night!

Press Release: All good things must come to an end so the saying goes.  It’s time for one good thing to end and another good thing to begin. Saturday night at the Qwest Arena in Boise, Idaho, it’s time for Prince Badi Ajamu to try and overthrow former pound-for-pound boxing king Roy Jones, Jr., who challenges for the Prince’s regional light heavyweight championship in a twelve-round fight shown nationally on Pay-Per-View.

Prince Badi (25-2-1, 14 Kos), known as “The Fighting Prince” hails from the legendary gyms of Philly and hopes on taking Jones to the school of hard knocks.  A future Hall of Famer, Jones has been accused of avoiding opponents capable of turning a “fight” into a “war”.  Ajamu thinks Roy Jones, Jr. (49-4, 38 Kos) will find himself in a “war” Saturday night. 

“I’m coming to fight, coming to win” says the Prince, who is promoted by Silverhawk Entertainment and managed by Jim Rider Boxing.

The theme for Saturday’s championship fight is “Hold Nothing Back”. Prince Badi plans on bringing the heat from the opening bell and has prepared for the best Roy Jones has to offer.  “I’m preparing to fight the Roy Jones who defeated Bernard Hopkins, James Toney and knocked out Montell Griffin in one round.  Roy is a man who is caught up in his goals”, says the Prince. “He is a desperate man on the rebound, chasing his demons, and he mistakenly thinks his fight against me is an opportunity to conquer his demons.  Saturday night he will find out that I’m hungry, determined and dedicated.  I’m on top of my game and his best days are behind him.”

Victory over Jones will propel Badi towards the same elite class of the light heavyweight division as Antonio Tarver and Glen Johnson and, he hopes, will put him in line for a world title fight with fellow Philadelphian Bernard Hopkins should he decide to fight again and defend his title.
