"I came to Russia with peace in mind as I have been doing regularly for the past 4 years. I didn't come here to offend nobody," the former multi-divisional champion said, as cited by Boxing Scene.
Jones added he came to Russia to promote his business and boxing, and his visit has nothing to do with politics.
The boxing legend also threw a verbal jab at the Klitschko brothers and said that if any of them have a problem with him, they know how to reach him.
The Klitschko comment might be addressed to the elder of the brothers, Vitali, who is the current mayor of Kiev.
On Thursday, Jones applied for a Russian citizenship. The boxer said he wanted to be part of the Russian community, and the country's citizenship would help him to develop sports in Russia.
