So Jones wanted big fights, but according to that interview, and someone posted it here a month ago, even HBO couldn't get people to fight him. Benn turned down a career high payday.
I dont know too much about it, but I have my suspicions. . . I'ts like when FMJ said he wanted to fight Hatton then ended up fighting Bruseles. . . . He said he went down the list of best possible fighters but he's full of shiit. He couldnt get the big money fight with Hattn and went straight downt to number 15 with Bruseles. RJJ did this kinda crap alot.
But all in all FMJ is a bigger dissapointment than RJJ was.
