Roy Jones I would have thought, Steve may not have had his brain bashed in like Roy but I think he's been out of the ring too long.

It's yet to be established what weight the pair will fight at when they meet, but Jones Jnr has been installed as “unbackable favourite” at 1/500 by Paddy Power, with the draw set at 200/1 and a Collins a 40/1 punt.

This like the PGA seniors tour of Boxing, its absurd, expect Eubank to want to fight the winner.

It's BS which promoter is going to be stupid enough to put this on and in Dubai? Do me a favour! Nothing will come of it thank goodness.

Since Eubank has recently tried and failed to get Nigel Benn in the ring recently, I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Eubank sat at ringside in his suit calling out the winner.

Thought this thread was a wind up for sure when I saw the title but it isn't unfortunately. Collins should be happy with getting lucky that Eubank's killer instinct had gone then getting out before Calzaghe could give him a tuning.

Truly can't believe this. Steve Collins mate, I know you were a great fighter and felt angry that Jones ducked you all those years ago but Jesus Christ, just let it go now.

He must be skint and needs the money. Why else would he do this, it's beyond mental. Can't believe RJJ has agreed to do it too, has he no shame? He surely doesn't need the money, he's got a tidy job as one of the demented HBO crew. How could accept a fight with a 50 year old who hadn't fought in and a decade in half and had certified brain damage?

Collins is a desperate loon. RJJ is just a twat looking for an easy win in a high profile fight to end his career on. Farcical fight.
