    I don't at all mate. Roy is penciled in to fight twice in two weeks or so (boxrec link above) Roy is trying to get the shot at Huck. This doesn't do anything for that at all. I wont believe it until Roy says so.
    He hasn't said anything as yet. Time difference etc. (Im in UK)

    Roy follows me on Twitter, so I'm gonna message him shortly.

    He's also scheduled to fight on the 12th of September in Liverpool.

    What the hell's going on?

    Also, if true, it's a horrible fight for him at this stage. Shannon is shot, but you'd have to think that he'd easily get Roy out of there and hurt him. It doesn't make sense to me. Why would he fight him, when Huck has apparently agreed to fight him at the end of the year? If he fights Briggs first, the title shot will never happen.

    One thing Roy has left its upper body movement and footwork.

    Could Briggs chase him around for 10rds and get em.

    I don't think he could.

    Roy by easy wide UD.

    AS for the Huck fight.....why would beating Briggs put a halt to it ??????

    Briggs has the worst stamina in boxing. The dude gets out of breath just by talking.

    All Jones has to do is move around for 4-5 rounds and Briggs will be ready to go.

    It looks like Briggs is headlining some "old-timers night" fight card. It looks like Bonecrusher is on it too. I hope Briggs fights a live body for once.
