    American former world boxing champion Roy Jones Jr. has asked Russian President Vladimir Putin for Russian citizenship over a cup of tea.

    Jones' promoter told the R-Sport news agency two years ago that the boxer wanted a Russian passport.

    During Wednesday's meeting, Putin wished Jones success doing business in Russia and the boxer responded that this would be easier if he had a Russian passport. Putin told him this would not be a problem if he planned to spend a significant part of his life in Russia.

    Their meeting took place in Crimea, which Russia annexed last year and where the 46-year-old boxer and rapper will take part in a show this weekend.

    Jones said he hoped sport could help "build a bridge" between the U.S. and Russia.

    We need to start respecting our past boxers more! They'll all become commies and make us look like fools! Apollo Creed didn't die for this shit.

    If George Foreman defects, this country is over.

    I like how Fox is courageously fighting the Obama administration's lies about emails and so on, but don't question for a second this narrative they've spun of Russian aggression that could actually lead to war.

    If I was black and had a ton of money, I'd probably go live in another country

    I'd probably pick like Panama or Costa Rica though.

    Maybe they're offering him something in Russia cool though. Some kind of immunity from the law or some shit. Political influence. I don't know.

    Interesting.
