Bailey is under the delusions that Joe was actually on the radar over here and ducked by RJJ. The quote from Joe proves that even if Joe was on the radar, he would price himself out of the fight.
I can't speak for bailey, but I've not seen people suggest that Jones ducked Calzaghe? When was the fight ever really viable? How can Joe price himself out when he was never made an offer? Finally, Jones was a star, any fighter wanted the crown jewels to face him, even his mandatories like Richard Hall would have received career high paydays or 'the crown jewels' when they faced Jones
