I remember back in the 90s Jones saying that he did not enjoy boxing anymore and it was just a job for him. So he must be broke or changed his tune.

lol 'I want more money so I can enjoy my retirement a bit more'

Toney can happen.

I'm not sure if Ward will, but he might not turn down the paycheck as he has nothing left to prove.


We all know he's been finished since 2003. 10 years removed from his prime lol
I actually think Froch-Roy Jones can fight at a catchweight and retire together.

Toney 2
Tarver 4
Both at cruiser.

These are nice safe fights for Roy. Wont take too much damage and might even win.

Hi there,

Where does Roy say he wants to fight 3 elite opponents, and possibly a future hall of famer?

I've heard him say 3 more fights, but not against elite opposition. It wouldn't be possible for him to fight 3 elite guys.

Regards, Loudon.

Roy is going to have a very bad ending to this story. he should know better considering he visited that other partially brain dead fighter and said he did not want to end up like that. This was like 15 yrs ago or more. Gerald Mcullen. Roy is going to end up badly hurt or killed and I'm almost willing to bet money on it, not that I would though.

Roy talked like he knew better...however he dont know no better. Ole Spinach Chin will fight again.And ole spinach chin will LOSE again.

I honestly think Jeff Lacy should somehow make a comeback attempt if he could get ole Roy to fight him. Tables turned....i think? Who dont wanna PAY for Lacy/Jones Jr 2?

Jones was already shot when he beat that Lacy,and he beat him easily.

A lightly more shot Jones still schools a shot Lacy

He has been badly beaten by b-grade fighters. He needs to stay away from the elite level.

Has anyone got a link for this?

On b/scene it doesn't say anything about wanting to fight elite guys.

I wonder do his kids believe the delusions or are they trying to talk him out of the madness..

Doctor who clears him to fight should be investigated.

It can't be money and only money that drives him lately, he's clearly addicted and doesn't give a damn.
Dopamine...the neurotransmitter of addiction.
