I can barely skim articles that focus on interviews of them.
Which, in turn, made me realize I'm entirely ignorant of what the real driving force is behind the drama of this upcoming fight. As try as I might, I can't come up with a valid reason for either of them to be mad.
As I understand it, Evans left Jacksons because he was upset. But I have no real understanding of what he was upset about.
Did Jackson really "push him aside" as has been alluded to in this thread? How?
Was he mad that Jones got the title shot when he [Evans] was hurt? What did he expect to happen, and what would he have done if the situation was reversed?
Was he mad that Jackson didn't kick Jones out of the gym once Bones started showing promise?
Can someone really explain this to me?
