Default Jones vs Hanshaw

Interesting fight, unfortunately I haven't even seen a second of Hanshaw in action. I've seen Mendy (who Hanshaw drew with) and while Mendy is better than Ajamu, in my opinion he's still not as good as this faded version of Jones.

I'm interested in what sort of chance you guys who have seen Hanshaw in action lately give him

That's interesting. What is that in rounds? 8 rounds to 2 with 2 even?

And you know ALL that before the fight?

THis fight will do horrible PPV numbers. Im suprised Showtime didnt grab it. Jones is fighting a no namer, with no power, so if he gets ko'd, his career should be over.

His career is already essentially over. This is just the dog and pony show for people that still want to see him. Unfortunately, I'm one of those people, but I also know that he won't ever be a significant player in the sport again.

Ticket Sales are weak too. I wonder who scripted the skit over at the IP Biloxi? "Jones Jr. won't let Hanshaw train at the IP for a second day".

Honestly, if I took the time to truck in my own gym to train, I wouldnt let my opponent use it either. Why is it Roy Jones responsibility to provide his opponent with boxing equipment. He might as well give him some shoes and boxing trunks while hes at it. I dont blame Jones for not letting him use his equipment, I wouldnt either.

You joke, but the story was submitted by Jones's promoter. It's a complete non-issue.

I'm not a big Jones fan, but realistically Hanshaw and Mendy are top 20 supermiddleweights (probably 15-20), both deserving of a higher ranking than Manfredo imo.

So if Jones beats Hanshaw, he could suddenly be a legitimate top 20 supermiddle, possibly 10-15 in the unlikely even he has an impressive win. After that he might only be a fight away from a top 10 ranking if he can line up the right opponent (maybe Bika or Tsypko). I wouldn't be surprised to see him get another title shot at this point (maybe he'll get it sooner or with an easier opponent, wouldn't be a surprise), who knows, he might even line up a fight with Taylor at this weight.

And I think it's a 12 round fight instead of 10. Hanshaw has some bullshit fringe title.
