    Yes mate, I put the boxrec link in above somewhere....Liverpool bout and one before that and then this... 2 fights in a fortnight or so.
    Unless the Liverpool bout is Briggs, (if true) as it is still TBA last time I looked.

    Liverpool fight is on 12th

    This fight is on 4-5th according to Briggs. But I don't think he can fight anyone 1 week after fighting a huge heavyweight in Briggs, win or lose.

    I dont buy a word Briggs says about this..he loves publicity.

    If Roy says its on, its on. Until then, it seems absurd as fu ck IMO mate.

    i also suspect this has something to do with Briggs and Tarver.

    Roy's legs have gone.

    I honestly think that Briggs would just walk him down and take him out. I love Roy, but that's how I see it. At this stage, Roy doesn't want to be fighting ANY hard hitting HW.

    I'll wait until Roy confirms it, but I can't see him fighting four times in a month.

    I think the only confirmed fight at the minute is Danny Santiago, who's been linked with fighting Roy several times within the last 3-4 years.

    Yeah, Santiago.

    The date in liverpool is on Boxrec. No other dates for Jones or Briggs on there.
    I think its just the two fights, not three or four.

    The dates are misleading everyone I think.

    John Ruiz confirmed. I don't know what Briggs is talking about :lol:

    He will first fight Roy Jones Jr and knock him out in the first round. After that fight, he will fight Rid**** Bowe and Bowe will probably retire in his corner after 1 round.

    Third fight is vs James 'Bonecrusher' Smith. Briggs knocks him out in the first round. The fourth fight is the main event : Briggs vs John Ruiz . That is possibly a WBC title eliminator.

    Lennox Lewis will be there as well. Maybe it really is Tarver vs Briggs.

    It's odd.

    I think the two fights in August will happen though. They were confirmed a while back.

    He never wanted to fight any hard hitting Heavyweight hence why he handpicked John Ruiz. :lol::rofl
