Default Re: Felix Trinidad Signs to Fight Roy Jones Jr.

I have always thought this was a horrible match-up for Tito... he loses too much power when he moves up in weight...

However is it just me or are Roy Jones Jr's legs completely gone? In his last couple of fights he has made such a habbit of sitting on the ropes... literally to the point where it starts to look like his legs aren't strong enough to hold his body upright... Years ago I would have given Tito no chance and begged him to move down in weight, but if Jones Jr moves around like he's been... Trinidad can knock him out for sure

Jones should win easy, but I dont care for this fight. Tito is not good enough to be competitive at any point in his career with Jones. Jones is too big for him. Joke fight.

Tito vs Jones at 170 lbs bad decision from Tito I think is stupid without a tune up he must need the money Don King is a master making money from retired fighters like Vargas,Mayorga and Tito, easy fight for Roy.

Honestly, I give Tito props. I guess he thinks he'll be able to land one of his crunching shots. Too bad it was good for crunching guys as 147-154 (well, and Joppy) and did jack crap against B-Hop.

You're brave, Tito. And/or you need some $$$$ bad.

jezz ive been a fan of Tito all my life..I can't believe this fight is happening..this is a disgrace of a match up I can't believe this is happening. Tito fans better not get their hopes up cus I sure ain't. Why couldn't Tito come back to fight some guys like Abraham or some other tough middle weights. but RJJ is too big in size... this is going to be absurd.

The only good thing about this is that it shows that Tito has balls to fight just about anyone..he is ****ing crazy..But he is going to get crushed!

Even at his best Tito was not in the same league as RJJ. If he thought DLH put a boxing exhibition on him, he won't know what hit him when even this older slower version of RJJ makes him look bad.

RJJ is too big, too skilled, too powerful, for the older inactive smaller Trinidad.

The real irony is that Winky-Hopkins was the exact same thing size-wise (Winky didn't have Trinidad's inactivity of course), and half the board acted like it was the win of the century for Bhop.
