Gym welcomes hitman.

A TYNESIDE gym is to welcome one of the world's most successful boxers.

Greens Health and Fitness Club in Gosforth, Newcastle, will be visited by Roy Jones Jnr as part of his whistle-stop tour of the country. Known as one of the most successful boxers in the sport's history, the US-born hitman has captured championship titles in the middleweight, super middleweight, light heavyweight and heavyweight divisions. He is the only boxer in history to start his career as a junior middleweight and go on to win a heavyweight title.

He will host a talk at the gym on Thursday, October 14.

"I've heard a lot about the area and its love of the sport.

"I'm looking forward to the event and meeting my fans," he said.
