Jones has also been training heavily with Brit's Chris Eubank Jr ahead of the fight on November 28. In a promotional clip released earlier this week, Eubank praised Jones Jr's incredible mentality:

"It's a crazy atmosphere, but crazy is what breeds excellence in this sport. And that's what Roy is, he's no ordinary trainer, and he is the best trainer I've ever had."
