Middleweight Jones has been described as a “great father”, who “provided for his kids”.

Jones’ longtime boxing trainer, Roshawn Jones (no relation), told The Ring: “He was a hard worker.

“Everyone is not perfect in life but he was a good human being.

“He’d make you smile and laugh and was a great role model in the gym.”

Jones, a National Golden Gloves winner, turned pro in 2016.

He had a professional record of 9-7-0.

Trainer Roshawn has set up a GoFundMe, with money going towards Jones’ funeral and kids.
