Roy Jones Jr. says he’s super stoked his kid is an elite athlete … and even happier it’s not in boxing … ’cause according to Roy the sweet science is too dangerous and cutthroat for his boy.
Roy and his kid, Roy III, came on “TMZ Sports” (Thursday at 8:30 PM PT on FS1) when the guys asked why RIII — who’s a high school hoops star … didn’t pick up the boxing gloves like his old man.
Roy answers … and we gotta say … it’s a pretty good one.
BTW — stick around for some AWESOME father/son smack talk when we ask who’d win in a one-on-one game.
Watch the full interview tonight on FS1.
