If former boxing champion Roy Jones Jr. has his way, he will be the next mayor of his hometown of Pensacola, Fla.

The 45-year-old told TMZ Sports that he plans to run for office in the next election. And Jones is completely confident that he can win, too.

Jones, who became the first former middleweight champion to win a heavyweight title in 106 years back in 2003, has already got more than enough required signatures in order to make himself eligible (5,000).

Jones says he would focus on the well-being of children, "A lot of kids don't have proper leadership at home."

He also urges that kids shouldn't fight in the streets. If they want to fight, they should enter MMA or boxing, so that they can be someone to be proud of.
