There's many ways to duck. If Roy offered 100$ to fight him while he'd take home 10M+ then what should we call it?

Of course only people from England seem to think Jones Jr. would duck those guys.


Steve Collins stayed in England?

He fought Mike Mccallum in England?

He fought Reggie Johnson in England?

Did he also fight Sumbu Kalambay and Tony Thornton in England?

You're a ****ing idiot

Also where did Nigel Benn fight Iran Barkley and Doug Dewitt?

I wouldn't mind if he'd missed all these guys, while staying at 168. But he only fought there 6 times.
He was at 168 for about three years and only fought Toney. After that it was nohopers as I outlined above, while he avoided all the dangermen.

It might be ok for you as a member of he Ripped Fuel brigade, but ordinary hardcore fans is quite dissapointed and wondering what could have been.

I didn't watch Glen's final fight, so I've no idea how much he's got left. It should be good though.

Fighting on Channel 5 is good exposure, which is what he needs, especially after his inactivity.

I saw highlights of Glen's final fight against Fonfara, and he looked awful. But you never know with a veteran like Glen, he alway comes to fight, and George hasn't fought anyone like that.

Manny's on Primetime isn't he?

Is it a one off PPV? Or do you you have to join up for a while? All of these fights used to be free on sky sports, I can't believe what's happened in the last two years. Now you need Sky, ESPN, Primetime and Boxnation to see everything.

It's a one off payment of 15, but I won't be staying up til 5am for it. I'll just stay off any websites and catch it on youtube the next day


Quote:
I think it'll be another close fight and Manny will just edge it. I want Manny to win, but only on the basis of, if Marquez wins convincingly, I think that will kill any hope of a Manny-Floyd fight. So I'll be rooting for Manny.
Yeah fair enough mate, I thought Manny looked good against Bradley and won the fight, I think he'll look good again this weekend. I just don't think he has the same spark he had in 2009, I think the Margarito and Cotto fights took alot out of him


Quote:
I was looking forward to Murray-Rees this weekend, and Carson Jones-Purdy.

They would have been great fights.


Regards, Loudon.


Yeah Purdy-Jones would have been a war! Carson Jones impressed me against Brook, he's rugged, can punch and he puts the pressure on non-stop. He reminds of Glen Johnson.

Whatever you get up to mate, have a good weekend

Jones was content on fighting alot of mediocre opponents and getting paid particularly at 175. however nobody really actively chased jones, and demanded to fight him.

The thing with loudon is that he takes any source that fits his agenda. Nevermind if said source is unreliable, heavily biased or downright lying. As long as it fits the agenda.

It was not all Roy's fault that some of those fights were not made, and it shows lack of knowledge on the business side of boxing to believe that it is.

you think Roy was lying? Or being lied too by his manager?

The idea that RJJ was so good that no one decent would fight him is just stupid.
