Who's he fighting for?

Honest question
Why do you find that funny?

No one wants to see Roy fight this far past his prime and take unnecessary punishment. If there was one fighter I never wanted to see this happen to, it was Roy Jones Jr.

The guy he will be fighting is not a heavy puncher at all but that doesnt mean much cause roy took some real damage in his career and it will work against him

Doesnt come across as a massive partier or addict or anything like that.

How could he be broke?

It was credibly reported a couple of months back that he owes the IRS $3.5 million. If given the choice of fighting a couple of bums or doing time for tax evasion, it's an easy choice.

Somebody should have stopped him from spending.

Maybe this is his goodbye with a win.
That kinda sounds similar to the guys he fought in his prime.

Great, another ATG boxer that will soon to be unable to put together a coherent sentence.

Roy, hang 'em up brother. You were great, but the show is over. Time to move on.

I agree with some of the other sentiments in this thread: Somebody needs to protect Roy from himself. This is insanity.

He's fighting a bum, relax. This seems to be a farewell fight.

I think he might be annoyed at people saying hopkins is higher than him in the ATG list now. Just my opinion.

WHOSE WITH ME?! SAVE JONES JR!
I'm good with the tranquilizer rifle and will bring a Roy Jones CD we can all listen to as we kidnap him.

Jones today still has more than most and he has been KOed a few times like most fighters, this crying is pathetic


The man used to toy with and beat around the ring far far lesser fighters all the while mocking them

where was you then ?
I don't wish being KO'd on anyone....except Antonio Tarver....I hope everything bad in life happens to that guy...

It's a bit too late to do anything about it.

He must have forgot...
