    Roy Jones Jr KTFO

    What a joke RJJ has become. He's getting destroyed by bums the past 5 years or so. The KO in this fight is VICIOUS and 100% the fault of the ref.

    In his prime, this bum wouldn't have landed a punch on RJJ but now that he's old and slow his lack of good technical skills has finally caught up to him.

    Re: Roy Jones Jr KTFO

    don't call one of the most dominant boxers in his time a joke. Is he too old to fight? yes, but no reason to call him a joke.


    Remember there was a time when he couldn't even be touched, and his constant weight switching finally took a toll on him. Some boxers don't know when to call it quits...well all of them don't

    Re: Roy Jones Jr KTFO

    With all due respect, he's a joke right now, although I prefer to call this "extremely sad". What he's doing now is just tarnishing his legacy

    Re: Roy Jones Jr KTFO

    And you can't really fault the other boxer....the ref needed to step in sooner. I've seen some where the ref jumps in and the other boxer keeps cheap shotting but the ref was terrible there....and then just lets him fall on his face.

    Are you serious? Did you not see the part of my post where I said that in his prime, this Russian bum wouldn't have ever hit RJJ?

    RJJ is a complete joke right now, he needed to hang it up 6 years ago and now hes just ruining his legacy.

    The other guy even looks at the ref like, "WTF, are you gonna step in anytime soon?!?"

    Re: Roy Jones Jr KTFO

    It's a shame most boxers stick around longer than they should. It's sad to see guys like Holyfield and Tommy Hearns who just won't walk away. Bernard Hopkins will probably fight til he's 60

    The only two champions I can think of in my lifetime that left the sport before their skills diminished were Marvin Hagler and Joe Calzaghe

    He looked pretty good last night. I would love to seem retire before he gets knockdowned of KO'd though.

    Against my better judgement I went to the fight last year when he fought Jones Jr. After that fight, I didn't ever want to see either fight again. That was the saddest piece of garbage I've ever witnessed..live or on tv. Hopkins is still a tough guy to knock out, he just brings nothing to the table besides that. With Jones its getting scary. That man is killing off his last brain cells

    I vowed to quit watching Hopkins fights about 3 years ago. He is beyond boring.

    every boxer does this, they think they still can fight, and get owned. But, it's hard to determine when your time is done. When you can still own 99.99% of the world in boxing its hard to feel that you can lose. Does not mean they are a joke. Past their prime and now going downhill? yes, but they will go out the way they want


    I guess I just have a lot more respect for boxers as I've met a bunch of former professional boxers and followed it avidly. It takes a lot just to even fight, that alone makes them not a joke.
