If BHOP beates RJJ easy....should Green fight him again?

I know RJJ is going about the wraps....I dont think the IBO will order a rematch.

I just think BHOP will give it to Roy this time

reading the article.
8cn-will there be a rematch.
RJJ-yes there was a rematch clause in the contract.
the IBO has nothing to do with it.Green-Mundine II will be next year.

Green v RJJ II could play out quite differently to their first meeting. If Green doesn't get him early again the result could well be RJJ by wide points.

Perhaps team Roy will only let Green use the velcro single turn wraps this time!

If he stays off the ropes in this fight he wins with the jab easy. If he lets hopkins dictate where the fight is gonna be its a hard night for him.

I'm hearing you, but lets look at the odds first.

The following is an interesting extract from a Ringside Report article by Geno McGahee:

Roy Jones Jnr vs Bernard Hopkins II

Even before Roy got stopped in one round by Danny Green, it was ridiculous, but now, it makes even less sense.

At one time, Roy was an absolutely fantastic fighter with lightning reflexes and great timing, but he has lost it. He is now better than other shot fighters like Omar Sheika and Jeff Lacy, two men he’s beaten in recent times, but he is not good enough to be in the top tier of the light heavyweight division or anywhere around there.

Danny Green is not a great fighter but he’s got a punch and he still has a lot left in the tank. He exposed Jones for the spent force that he is, pummeling him until the referee stopped it. Roy, at first, gave him total credit for the win, but we know Roy. Quickly after the fight, he began making accusations against Green, stating that he had loaded gloves and that the fight result should be changed to a DQ win for Jones, JR.

Jones, JR’s ego cannot handle losing via first round stoppage, so he has to make some excuse. The loaded gloves excuse not only helps him save face and may even convince some gullible people that he got jobbed, but it also saves this PPV. He can now dismiss that loss and forge on…

The hype leading up to this fight should not be viewed unless you want to lose your lunch. The two fighters throwing insults at each other, face to face, was as staged as can be, and I would not rule out an agreement to fight to a draw to get the public to buy a third encounter. If you remember when Hopkins fought Winky Wright on PPV and they had that obviously staged moment where Bernard shoved Winky’s face with the palm of his hand…well, here we go again.

Hopkins is not as shot as Jones. He’s crafty and has compensated his declining reflexes with ring smarts and some dirty tactics. He fought a close fight with Joe Calzaghe, losing a split decision, and dominated Kelly Pavlik, the Middleweight Champion. He defeated Antonio Tarver without much trouble, but his time is coming to an end.

He’s still good enough to defeat 90% of the challengers put in front of him, but he is not a seat filler. His fights are ugly and predictable. We are going 12 rounds and it’s going to be a long and boring ride.
