This Saturday's Bernard Hopkins vs. Roy Jones Jr. pay-per-view telecast will only be available on pay-per-view and will not be shown on a delayed broadcast.
"Fans who think they can wait to see this on free television better think again," said Hopkins. "This is a one-time only and once in a lifetime opportunity to see me give Roy Jones the beating I have been waiting all these years to give him. Anyone out there who thinks I am kidding better not snooze on this one because if you snooze, you lose."
"I beat Bernard once and he's been waiting a long time for revenge, so he has a lot of hate pent up and it's been building up for a long time," said Jones. "You only have one chance to watch me beat him again and that chance is live Saturday night. No tape, no replay, just live."
Please note that the pay-per-view telecast will be aggressively monitored on the internet and any piracy and/or infringements will be legally dealt with in a swift and immediate manner.
