Russians might soon see Roy Jones Jr. as a TV host on Channel Zvezda, after the legendary boxer said he would love to work there as an anchor.

The former multidivisional champion isn't a shy man, telling the media he would be a perfect fit as an anchor on the television channel.

"I like to work on TV and I am a TV guy. My face, my body and my language are made for television," Jones told Zvezda.

When told what the word Zvezda ["Star" in Russian] meant, Jones couldn't contain his joy.

"Oh, a star! And I'm a star! It means we belong to each other!" the boxer said.

Last month, Jones visited Russia's Crimea and said he'd be interested in applying for Russian citizenship.
