Roy Jones Jr. Preparing New Album

WBA Heavyweight

Boxing champ Roy Jones Jr. is finishing up recording his second album, Round

Two, I’m Ready.

The album will

be released on Jones’ own Pensacola, Florida based Body Head Entertainment and

will feature appearances from Pastor Troy and Lil Jon as well as production

from platinum producer LT Hutton.

"I want to

develop talent right here in Pensacola," Jones said. "Our goal is

to build Body Head [to compete] among the elite, independent record labels."

Jones recently

returned from a four day visit to Nairobi, Kenya, promoting HIV/AIDS awareness

and education.

The trip was sponsored

by Africans Unite Against AIDS Globally. Jones met with Kenyan President Mwai

Kibaki and visited local hospitals, public schools, slums and boxing facilities.

Jones also served

food to hungry citizens and treated enthusiastic fans to a live performance

and showcase featuring artists from the Body Head label.

Going to Africa

was one of the most incredible experiences in my life," Jones continued.

"Not only was I able to give help and hope to people who are really in

need. But I was able to experience Africa. Going there, for me, was the start

of a new beginning, it was like a new book in my life."

Jones next scheduled

bout in the ring will be November 8, against Antonio Tarver.
