Family man, who doesnt have 10 baby mommas like Holyfield, or opartied like crazy and spent stupid money like Tyson.

How could he be broke?
Lost a lot of money on that rap label and bad real estate deals. Still it should be impossoble to blow more than 150m.

There are rumors that Roy is hoping to fight Kessler at 175.

I thought that before being knocked cold by Denis Lebedev. Roy Jones looked pretty good. He was able to make Lebedev miss a lot, and took up to the end some solid shots. He wasn't able to muster up any offense of his own though. Kind of like the Hopkins fght.
I think Jones can still win a championship. However he's going to have to say "**** it I might get knocked out" and go on the offensive more.
He has a study job with HBO, so I don't think this is about money. I think it is about ego. I remember a headline before the Thomas Hearns/Virgil Hill bout. In referance to Hearns. "Healthy, Welthy, but Not Wise" These wouds may fit Jones now. Than again Hearns did win that fight.

I wonder if there's someone secretly paying Roy to be a stuntman, to see how much more beatings can he take

Sad. Roy was untouchable for a time, now he could end his career with double digit losses he needs to fight a few cans and retire.

Hes not dealing with it at all actually. It wouldnt be a bad idea for him to seek out some kind of counciling. His family is too close to the situation to help him through the retirement process and coming to terms with himself as a person. Its also very possible that subconsciously he thinks he deserves to get beaten up if he cant win.

Very interesting analysis. I wish RJJ had retired after he beat Ruiz.
