    Default Roy Jones Junior is still fighting

    I had no idea, he's basically going around beating up domestic level fighters. I think he's got 3 fights within 2 months coming up, already booked in.

    While he's doing that he is also calling people out and saying he will be world champ again!

    Not even sure what to say. Feel chuffed for the 42 year old Liverpool lad he's fighting, but sad for Roy.

    This was his recent fight:

    I really hate it when ATGs like Jones ruin their legacy like this.

    At his best he was an unbelievably good fighter and one of the best who ever set foot in the ring, but over the last few years he's made a fool of himself.

    It's been a very ending for possibly the greatest boxing talent of all time. To think that the back-to-back KO losses were 11 years ago... and to think that he was talking about retiring 12 or 13 years ago... and here he is still plugging away.

    There seem to be very few happy endings in boxing.

    You can say that about 85% of all ATGs. Difference is, Roy is fresh in people's minds.

    You would have bet half your life savings that Ray Leonard would have quit fighting after getting pummeled by Terry Norris....only to come back SIX years later..

    Its a bit like watching a world series pitching ace grow older and relive the glory days by blowing out single A baseball teams who never made the big leagues. Having 3 set ups already on deck reminds me of Foreman's Toranto Five.

    Roy Jones Jr. loves boxing. He loves being in the ring and showing his skills even if those skills have diminished.

    You nimrods who say he's ruining his reputation by continuing to do what he loves clearly don't understand true passion.

    He's fighting for himself. Not for you. He's fighting because he wants to push himself even tho he's old, even tho he's nowhere near the skill level he once was, even tho he's fighting guys he should be able to blow out. He's doing it because it make him happy. That's reason enough to do anything and I feel sorry for you douchebags who don't get it.

    How many of you will work at the jobs you hate until you're 65 - 70 years old?!!? How many of you will be that senior citizen in the McDonald's commercial working a part time job because you have to--because you have no choice?

    He is still farting. I suggested him to retire in response to his FB post

    Jones is like Duran/Holmes was way past the point where it hurts his legacy. Everything positive he does is a bonus and if he loses, well that is expected.

    I almost quoted this just on the strength of you using the word Nimrods, made me chuckle.


    Yes Roy's legacy is intact for anyone that has half a clue.


    I've got no problem with him doing what he wants to do with his life. The problem is, what he wants to do is voluntarily get punched in the head.


    Yes he's fighting at a level that he can cope with, where the risk is somewhat lessened. But all that needs to happen is for one of these guys get lucky, or for them to gauge the opponent wrong and he's facing another Lebedev experience. No one wants to see that.

    I feel the same way. If he somehow beat Huck or another titlist then it's a bonus.

    Agree with Rocco as well, let him do what he wants it's not that sad. He's fighting in places he hasn't fought before to get the same rush he used to, people still come out excited to see him perform and he still looks very good to your average person, and against your average person lol. I don't think any of the guys he's fought recently are even capable of giving him another Lebedev experience, but if he does seriously keep talking about fighting Huck then of course that's a likelihood not just a possibility.

    It would be amazing but Roy would be stupid and continue to fight.
