To force animals to fight, maim and kill each other for entertainment is something I am very against. It would not surprise me one iota if Jones attended dog fighting matches. He's they type of person who would. I remember a while back HBO had Roy Jones twin sons at ring side, and judging by what HBO said Jones was just starting to take them back into his life. IMO, Jones seems a bit racy behind the mike too.

I respect Jones a lot in the ring, and view him as an all time middle or light heavy. Outside of the ring, I cannot stand this person.
Extremely against it myself, Mendoza.

He was very, very close to McClellan who's a proven dog fighter, so who knows.

I find it hard, perhaps impossible, not to respect every fighter thats ever stepped into the ring.

It's a tough sport, every competitor that gets into the ring deserves respect.

It was alleged that Jack Dempsey used to rape virgins to break them in for brothel keepers - this was paid employment.

I wouldn't normally respect a man who did that, but I love Dempsey. LOL

I think you'll make a fine hater. Roy Jones was into **** fighting, and says he let's his dogs fight too. Odds are he's into watching animals bleed, and cry out in pain as entertainment. Read the link.

Because he sells tickets, simple as that. Controversy sells.

He did redeem himself a bit in his recent fight with Mollo, though. Mollo tried some dirty tricks on him, hit him after the bell etc, and Golota's eye was terribly swollen shut (by only a few punches, actually), but miraculously, he showed great heart and continued with outboxing him.

He's on top of the division, not American, and has an apparant weakness. Those are three good ingredients to be disliked by a lot of fight fans.

Honestly, people faulting Golota for "quitting" against Tyson...

He had serious injuries.

Do people want him to be beaten retarded like Bowe was?

Golota worst quit job was vs Mike Grant. Golota was in the lead late in the fight, was knocked down, got up and quit when the ref asked if he wants to continue.

I'd need a fair bit more, there's a bit of speculation there concerning dogs with nothing proven. Dog foghts to the death are not something to be assumed from my side. It's a big stick.

JT,

Here's what we know. Jones has attack Pit Bulls and says he makes them fight for a long as 30 minutes. Roy Jones doesn't say he makes them fight to the death, but should we beleive him? And even if that is his intension, accidents happen. Dog fighting is a disgusting spectacle. The fights are full of blood and attack dogs tearing each other throats out.

Since Jones breeds roosters to battle to the death, it is likely his stable of put bull attack dogs are also in the same game.


I am amazed at how stupid Roy Jones is. He said this recentely on December 2007. I think he might have opened himself up to an investigation.



Get yor stick ready.

Jones doesn't make them fight, they are aggressive dogs and get into fights between themselves naturally sometimes. Jones also said it was when he was a kid, very long time ago.

Huh? Did you read the article. It says Jones lets his dogs fight. The article is dated December 2007, which is not many years ago. It is less than 3 months ago. Face it Seyna, Jones is into **** fighting, and breeds and keeps pit bulls that he " lets fight ".

IMO, Roy Jones mouth has put him on some thin ice. Don't be shocked it Roy Jones Jr is arrested for illegal **** or dog fighting.

Pit Bulls are not out bite each other. They are trained to do so.
