Roy Jones jnr stepped up his bid to fight Joe Calzaghe after he overcame fellow

The 39-year-old believes he still has what it takes to compete with boxing's

best, three years after being written off as past his prime.

And the American eight-time, four-weight title holder believes a showdown with

Wales' undisputed world super-middleweight champion Calzaghe is the perfect way

to prove it.

Jones and promoter Don King claimed they would be flying to Wales by private

jet today in an effort to ratchet up the pressure on Calzaghe and his promoter

Frank Warren to agree to a fight in Cardiff, either after the Welshman has

fought Bernard Hopkins in Las Vegas in April or as replacements for the

43-year-old Hopkins.

"We're going to Wales in the morning on a (Boeing) 737," King said last


Jones added: "I'm definitely looking to make that fight and I'm going there


"I'll fight anybody, anywhere, any time and if Hopkins-Calzaghe finishes how I

think it will, I'll even go to Wales and fight. I don't care."

Jones was delighted with his night's work, particularly in the face of

criticism he was too old to be in the ring.

He twice knocked down 35-year-old Puerto Rican Trinidad, who himself had come

out of a near three-year retirement, to win a unanimous decision after 12


"All my fans around the world said I was done," said Jones, who won the fight

117-109, 116-110, 116-110 on the judges scorecards.

"But you never know when you're going to be here, or when you're going to go,

so you can never know when it's your time.

"I had a great training camp and great sparring partners and I'm pretty much

Mr Unstoppable."
