Default Jones vs Trinidad

Are we going to get the chance to watch an American rendition of Last of the Summer Wine on TV or will we need to rely on *******?

When was the last time such major names got so little recognition.

I'm yet to see anyone give a shit about this fight and I don't blame them. It's two fighters who everyone thinks are past it and trying to recapture a fight that had potential a good FIVE YEARS AGO!

It would be great if Setanta showed this. I'm hoping Jones wins and that Hopkins-Jones II happens if BHop can't get Calzaghe.

I don't really mind who wins... its going to be weird watching a former World Welterweigt champion against a former heavyweight claiment..... I also think despite there ages the result will have some bearing on each's legacy....I fancy Jonesto be too mobile.... But with his rice paper chin who knows?

To be honest I dont care. I remember the guys in their pomp and to see them now is somewhat sad. Trinidad at LHW for gods sakes! Jones the shadow of his former self. If its on I'd sky plus it and watch it when I have time. If its not I wont shed a tear.

It didnt even have potential then.It was simply a case of 2 huge names making big bucks.If that fight had happened 5 years ago Tito would have been dropped and stopped.Now these 2 relics are so past it the end result simply doenst mean squat.Jones is crazy for making 170 in my opinion.His punch resistance will be even worse at the weight. I wouldnt be surprised at all if Tito and his illegal hand wraps knocked him out.

Who cares ? Hopkins is boring to watch, JC would give him a boxing lesson.

Loot at the state of Hopkins underwear (below)after thinking about fighting JC.

That means all the people who signed up for Setanta's three month deal will still have the channel for the fight.

This Is as bad as Vargas Vs Mayorga and most of the recycled Americans were getting lately like Mosley and DLH.
