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.
