Straight from the horses mouth.

Did S Collins have invisible paint on, where only the cameras pick him up?

How many more times?

Lou De Bella and HBO, DID NOT want to make the Collins fight at that point.

Collins had been inactive, and he wasn't a mandatory etc.

Roy had 2 belts at 175 at the time, and HBO wanted Roy to fight Reggie Johnson (who'd beaten Collins) to UNIFY the division instead of facing Collins.

That's what ended up happening. HBO dismissed Collins and then made the fight with Reggie.

Roy fought Reggie in his very next fight after Frazier.

Reggie was the bigger fight.

Roy wasn't going to pass up the opportunity to unify the division, to fight a guy who'd been retired and who didn't even fight at that weight.

Stop being an idiot!

Hopkins priced himself out of a rematch (which you have agreed on, in a previous thread.)

You can go to post 78 of this thread, and you can read up on the difficulty of making the DM fight.

Also, in January 2000, Roy fought David Telesco.

Perhaps, but you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who didnt know who he was.

Here is the footage of Benn in a post fight interview saying how much he wanted the fight with Roy Jones Jnr

[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgcl9qLqX5I[/ame]

And when all's said and done Roy Jones Jnr is a proven juicer and we'll never know how good he really was had he been a clean fighter.

How many Fighters did Jones duck according to Loudon?

I need to reread the thread to be sure, but I think loudon said that Jones ducked Littles, Nunn and Collins. There could be more. I think he has to resign from the Ripped Fuel Brigade. Traitor he is.
Why don't you go and re read my post. I've listed the 13 fighters, and the stats are next to each name.

Roy ducked/dismissed Nunn and Collins.

You have links that I have given you, which states that in 1995, Fred Levin didn't want to tie Roy in with King for Benn and Liles. Read the link.

There is no evidence whatsoever that Roy ducked Littles.

Eubank has admitted that he never chased the big fights.

Two fighters on your list of thirteen, didn't even fight at 168 while Roy was there, and four other fighters only fought there once.

How is the count at four?

How stupid are you?

Merchant said he was now willing to go to America.

Let me ask you this question.

Did he go in the end?

NO! Did he ****! Is the answer.

Post 78, it's all there.

Kohl refused a double header to promote the fight, which was ridiculous, and Brad Jacobs and HBO could never get Kohl on the phone, in a meeting, or to get the ball rolling.

After you've read the links, go and pull DM's resume up after talks had broken down. Go and look at who he fought. It's as clear as day, that DM didn't want the fight.

Ha! What can he say? Even he can't argue against the links in post 78. He's just clinging to Merchant saying "Dariusz is now willing to come to America." But we know that he changed his mind, because he never went.

You've got to love him though. He thinks Eubank's losses to Carl Thompson, are more impressive than Roy's win over Ruiz.

The man's an ESB Legend!

By the way, do you know what's happened to Metal Mandible?

I'd have put Graham in that list instead of Collins - and it would have been interesting to see the Bomber at his best fight Prime-Jones, he'd probably still lose to Jones but it would have been a good fight.

Herol was a class act, and he would have troubled ANYONE at 160. Roy would have had his hands full there. He was desperately unlucky not to win a world title.
