I would more like to see Bernard Hopkins vs. Roy Jones Jr III, then this. Or Roy Jones Jr vs. James Toney II (Not likley to happen) Becouse Jones Jr is old now and if he want’s to keep boxing on he should fight men from his own era and a third fight with Hopkins – Jones Jr would be best for both men and would make sence.

The last time I saw Kimbo Slice was in a MMA fight where some dude who wasn’t so tough just totally annihilated Kimbo in 9 seconds, a record short fight at the time.

because Super middleweights ALWAYS move up to heavyweight huh.

Cotto lost once

Meaning Jones of course.

Cotto lost once

I agree about it being Toney’s fault. But it is what it is. The guy was sucked dry and had nothing that night. I do think would have won anyway. But I don’t know if he qualifies for all time great status. If he stayed at Super Middle weight. He would have been the best S.M. of all time probably.

Roy Jones beat James Toney, PERIOD! Not an “overweight, sucked dry” Toney. Stop making excuses. If James Toney was fat and dehydrated, that reflects badly on him, not Roy Jones.

Cotto lost once

I hate to say it, but as fast and unbelievable Jones was in his prime. I have to question his all time great status. He never beat a top fighter except an overweight sucked dry Toney and a undersized over the hill McCallum. Bust against the A- and B+ fighters he was unreal.

According to Gary Shaw, the bout is not an exhibition.

Fight Scribe

Flash knock down you have used up entirely to many words in telling us Roy is to good for a bum like Kimbo when in fact the major point of this debacle is why and how this debacle of a contest even come about. This is plumbing new depths…even for boxing.

I remember the last exabition match i saw,,,, it was horrible!!!!!!!!……… Ivan Drago vs Apollo Creed ,,,,, Creed was warned! but pride got in his way,,,,,,,BUT!! rumour has it fight was fixed, Drago linked to KGB was orded by top brass to poach Creed for Mother Russia, Creed got wind of this and upped the ante on Drago, Drago knew he could never beat the Aaron Pryor clone, so they cut a deal.. Creed took a licking, faked his death, cashed in his insurance, joined Drago’s state of the art elite tennis coaching facilty in the then USSR( results of the academy are evident today) The USSR scientist then realised Creed was not a bigger stronger”clone” of Pryor!!!!!! but, actually actor Carl Weathers!!!! win win for the red commy’s, My concern now is for the Williams sisters and Kimbo !!!! Call me paranoid but ………. But really,, why else would this farcical event take place.
My mind Bggles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Maybe Kimbo can sit on Jones and crush him. :lol:

I expect Roy to outbox Kevin, but Roy better put his chin in an iron box before the fight. “Kimbo” has killer one-punch KO power. And he always goes for the quickest kill he can get. Meanwhile, I won’t be watching this “fight” either.

Posted September 22, 2012 9:11 pm

Kimbo Slice stunk at MMA and he is mediocre at best in boxing but RJJ would get get KO by the likes of Manny Pacquiao or Nionito Donaire at this stage of his deterioration. This is going to be a worse debacle and embarassment to boxing then what happened to James Toney by a coming out of retirement Randy Couture. I hope that since this is an exhibition, once RJJ gets touched on the chin and looks like he will faint, somebody will immediately call a halt to the exhibition. Fans that think RJJ has anything left have no short term memory.

what a fight cant wait! Kimbo by 1st round KO..magically turning Jones into a vegetable

And the winner will be the mandatory to fight Evander Holyfield for the WBC ‘early-onset dementia’ crackrock belt. This is beyond ridiculous. They might as well have them fight lions and bears and death-row convicts in the colosseum at this point. Someone needs to save these guys from themselves and remind them that there are other ways to make a living. As weird as it sounds, Roy, Kimbo and Evander could all learn from Tyson’s example and might want to consider parlaying their fight fame into some other form of the entertainment business.

flash knock down

Man I am the biggest Roy Jones Jr. fan in the world and on top of that I am a personal friend. Look Kimbo Slice was not a good street fighter and he all most got him self killed in MMA now he is getting in the ring with a fighter that I think is the best that has ever lived lol. Everyone needs to make money boxers have done this sense boxing began nothing new once great fighter gets old has no other real way to make the type of money they use to make then they start wresteling bears. In Kembo’s wildest dreams do you think he really wants to piss Roy Jones Jr. off even at the age he is now lol. Kembo is going to go down there take his beating get his check and go home and everyone will have had a great time.

This reminds me of Larry Holmes in the twilight of his career fighting a 400 pound guy named Butterbean. The thing I remember about Kimbo Slice was that he was in a MMA match a few years back and he took on a relative novice with little skills. The kid knocked out Kimbo with the first punch he threw and the match was over in 10 seconds. I hope the once-great Roy Jones doesn’t get hurt!

Hopkins vs Kimbo, I would pay that just to see Kimbo bash that punk Hopkins face in.

Posted September 22, 2012 3:35 pm

Put Bernard Hopkins in there instead of Roy. Bernard is a better actor. Bernards fake crys in the ring are classic. Since Bernard is the ultimate dirty fighter, a match with Kimbo would be like WWE

I was going to say Kimbo by KO until I saw it was an exhibition.

Being how competitive Roy is, it doesn’t matter if its an exhibition, sparring or a prime time HBO fight, RJ wants to win. At least this will keep him active and I think he’ll land a major title shot against one of the CW Champions. I would enjoy a Jones vs Green II or RJ vs Wlodarczyk

Roy will die skint and brain damaged

CurlyQ.Howard

If Roy cannot totally dominate Kimbo from the opening bell to the fight’s finish (however this is achieved – whether by K.O. or decision), then it not only will be time for Roy to retire, but it will also be time for ever sanctioning organization to prohibit Roy from ever fighting again – whether exhibition or not. As I see it, even at this stage of his career Roy should be able to hit Kimbo at will as well as avoid any and every punch that Kimbo throws. If Roy cannot do that, then his brain/nervous/reflex system has deteriorated beyond repair, and he should never fight again.

Lmfao… you guys telling Roy how to beat Kimbo. As shot as RJJ is, Kimbo has no skills, and terrible, terrible stamina. RJJ by KO if the word ‘exhibition’ is a front.

J. “KO King” Mo

If Roy does what he did against Ruiz by keeping the fight in the middle of the ring, stick and move, he will get the W easy. If he hurts Kimbo, he needs to go in for the kill and end the fight ASAP but most importantly, RJ needs to stay off the ropes, jab and hit Kimbo with body shots. Kimbo will leave many openings and Roy should be able to capitalize on his mistakes.

Kimbo will probably outweigh RJJ by 50 or so pounds. I guess it’s an “exhibition” because it can’t be a legit boxing event as it would not get sanctioned by any legit governing body…it’ll be a light heavy/small cruiser against a full blown/big heavyweight.
