Re: Roy Jones is going to win!
Jones messed up his body moving to heavy and the impact coming back down has had a negative effect. Jones in his prime v Calzaghe would have been a different fight but at this stage Jones does not have enough left. Calzaghe will throw too many punches and I think we will see Roy kept pretty much on the defensive apart from some flashes of the old Jones. It will be exciting in small bursts but I expect Joe to win either on points or by late stoppage.
I must admit though the saying that 'Every great fighter on the way down has one great fight left in him' is in the back of my mind... Jones would have to roll back the years though and it's a SLIm chance.
No win fight for Joe - if he wins they will say he beat a shot fighter if he loses he lost to has been. I just wonder if Jones gets a dodgy points decsion to set up a money spinning rematch in Wales
A word on Jones in his prime (forget the calibre of some of his opponents he was a perfect blend of a boxer ina punchers body - a great fighter who would have competed (if not beaten) the best around his natural weight. He probably wont be appreciated until after he's retired.
