I don't think that's true. Roy Jones Jr has to walk the walk. If he
wants to be the only serious name in his division, he has to prove it. He
can't just point to his success in his previous fights. There are too
many other guys he hasn't fought, who are walking around calling
themselves the champ.
I want to see what he does with a guy who can take his punch and keep coming.
I want to see what he does with a guy who can cut off the ring and punish
The great fighters rise to the occasion and accept the challenge.
Roy Jones Jr. is currently doing neither.
If a fighter of his calibre is not actively working to unify the three
meaningful belts in his division, then he is wasting his time, and our
He's only got a few years left! The average life of a fighter is only
from age 19 to age 30! That's only ten years! As champion, most big name
fighters only FIGHT once or twice a year. That means we could only expect
him to HAVE another 10 to 15 fights before he retires anyway, unless he
decides to fight once a month like Chavez did for a while.
Come on, Roy, quit putzing around!
