He's fighting Anthony Hanshaw July 14 in Biloxi. If he wins it looks like he will fight Trinidad.

OMG, that's a real dangerous fight for Roy. I think Tito will knock his head clean off.

If Trinidad fights Jones, Trinidad'll surely move up and fight him at a catchweight (I hear Jones can easily make 168, even though he's been a light heavyweight for the past 10 years). I don't know if even Trinidad can carry his power up to 168 that well. I suppose the advantage would go to the guy who's been fighting more often recently, Jones, but this fight is about 5 years too late.

And asides from that, is there anyone who's even gonna watch Jones/Hanshaw? On PPV, no less? On the same day as Margarito/Williams, Gatti/Gomez, and Cintron/Matthysse, which are all on regular HBO? Who in the hell schedules a PPV on a day like that? If anything, this fight should have taken place this weekend, or on a day that's not Saturday if they want some decent buys. Horrible marketing.

Yeh, that's kinda stupid. 6 years ago, people would have pulled their hair out to decide which to watch, but now, RJJ should be happy if HBO broadcasts him.

And he's my favorite boxer.

If Jones Tito fight at anything over 165 i think Jones will dominate. Tito has looked less then stellar in the last few years besides when he was knocking the piss out of Mayorga which i enjoyed greatly.

Even though some might think Jones is past his prime ( which he is) he is still a dangerous guy. I think at a smaller weight he might have some of his old speed back, an still have his power.

Roy tkos Tito 6th round.

Good point, I was just thinking about Tito KOing all those guys. I agree, RJJ is just naturally bigger and don't think anybody could take a good shot from RJ at these weights.That would be a real money making fight, and great opportunity to pull RJJ somewhere back in the limelight.

I might be crazy but at a smaller weight like MW, smw i don't think he can be knocked out. I think even at Roy's slowing down age he is faster and hits harder then most at the weight.

If by some chance Roy could make MW, which i don't think he can, but if he could i see him being a champ.

Roy vs Taylor, Taylor loses. I don't think Taylor could knock him out an i still think Jones is fast enough to make Taylor look silly. At his age he still has more skill then most.

Just has problems at a higher weight, but lower weight i think he dominates.

Roy knocks out Tito.

Funny thing I now live in Pensacola and everyone always says they've seen Roy Jones at the Walmart or wherever, me, I've never seen him.

Should I try Target instead?

Roy Jones Jr. bars foe from hotel gym
Tony Hanshaw is furious at Roy Jones Jr., his Saturday night PPV opponent, after Jones ordered hotel officials and security at the host IP Casino-Resort-Spa not to let Hanshaw and his training team use the ring and other boxing equipment which had been set up for both fighters. When Team Hanshaw went to train in the hotel-casino Monday, they were barred by an armed security guard who told them the premises were "off-limits" to anybody except Roy Jones Jr. The boxing ring and the various bags are all owned by Jones who trucked them over from his Florida home. Hanshaw had to take a 40-minute ride each way through heavy traffic to train at the Gulfport Boxing Gym.
