Jones reinforced that notion with a message on Twitter, saying he'll make an official announcement on his own terms:

Although his career may be coming to a close in less-than-spectacular fashion, fans will always remember Jones for his ability to capture titles in four different weight classes and his ridiculous 34-0 run that included a unanimous-decision victory over Bernard Hopkins in 1993. 

As that track record indicates, no one should take Jones lightly—even if his skills have waned considerably.

So to whichever fan earns the right to duel with the aged fighter, best of luck.
