Roy Jones Jr hopes his bond with Vladimir Putin will guarantee Brittney Griner's freedom.
“Right now, I’m hearing they’re trying to do a prisoner swap,” Jones said.
“If they do the prisoner swap, that will be good. If the prisoner swap does not work then you have to understand that I’m a diplomatic type of person. I don’t get into politics, but my friends are my friends.”
“If this doesn’t work I will go to Mr. Putin myself,” Jones said.
“I feel like because of my relationship knowing Putin like that, I owe it to her and her family, to my country here to go ask him if she’ll get out with a prisoner swap,” Jones said.
