Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) September 10, 2013
Boxing great Roy Jones, Jr. was recently honored by the city of Columbus, Georgia with a proclamation and a key to the city. Said Greg Countryman, Marshal of Muscogee County, Georgia, Jones was recognized not only because he had done impressive things while inside the ring, but also because of the great works he performed throughout many communities across the United States.
“Roy Jones is an inspiration to many,” said Countryman. “He makes time for the least, the lost, and the last. When he enters the ring, Roy Jones is the marshal. He takes command and carries out his duties.” Jones was accompanied by Burke Management's Vice President, Victor Burke.
In recognition for Jones’s good deeds, Countryman granted the boxer his personal lapel badge—a medal worn previously only by the marshal himself. “Words of gratitude just aren’t enough,” said Countryman.
The Office of the Mayor also honored the boxing great with a proclamation and a key to the City of Columbus, Georgia. Solicitor General Ben Richardson presented the key and proclamation.
Jones is managed by The Burke Management Firm, a Los Angeles-based entertainment company.
