Roy Jones Jr.

Roy Jones Jr. and James Toney are fighting on the same night and same card in Riga, Latvia

The term ‘crowd effect’ is a very powerful thing, and it has been for centuries. Anyone who spent their lives under constant spotlight, being the target of praise, popularity, fame and of course colossal earnings, will never want to live without it. Just as there are physical withdrawals from drugs, there is an equal amount of psychological withdrawal from lack of constant attention. There comes [...]

Roy Jones Jr: Golovkin would make Froch pay for his mistakes

HBO commentator Roy Jones Jr. says that he recommends that IBF/WBA super middleweight champion Carl Froch (33-2, 24 KO’s) go in the direction of former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. for his next fight rather than Gennady Golovkin, as Jones Jr. feels that with the mistakes that he saw in Froch’s game last night in his win over George Groves (19-2, 15 KO’s), that he would be [...]

Adrien Broner shouldn’t have fought Maidana, says Jones Jr.

Roy Jones Jr. thinks it was a big mistake for former WBA welterweight champion Adrien Broner (27-1, 22 KO's) to have been matched against a puncher like Marcos Maidana (35-3, 31 KO's) last month in their fight on December 14th. Jones Jr. thinks that Broner's tougher than expected fight against Paulie Malignaggi was a sign that he needed to fight a slightly stronger fighter for his next fight instead [...]

Cotto must pressure Sergio Martinez, says Jones Jr.

While the proposed June 7th fight between Miguel Cotto (38-4, 31 KO's) and WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (51-2-2, 28 KO's) still hasn't been negotiated, Roy Jones Jr. chimed in on his thoughts about the fight anyway. He sees the fight coming down to a couple of things. If Sergio boxes Cotto, then his chances of success increase dramatically. But if Cotto is able to turn the fight into [...]

Roy Jones Jr. wants Nick Diaz fight

Last night we saw Anderson Silva's dream of fighting Roy Jones Jr. go down the tubes with Silva's terrible leg injury he suffered in his loss to UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman in Las Vegas, Nevada. It's going to take Silva a long time to recover from the broken tibia and fibular he suffered in his 2nd round stoppage loss to Weidman. In the meantime, a fight between him and Jone Jr. is clearly [...]

Anderson Silva vs. Roy Jones Jr. fight not looking good now with Silva’s injury

There had been talk of Roy Jones Jr. fighting former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva in a boxing match in what likely would have been a terrible mismatch due to Jones' superior skills.

Boxing: Five Memorable “Psych Jobs”

Boxing is an inherently psychological undertaking. It is an activity that exposes the contestants to far more than the simple prospect of defeat: the potential combination of public humiliation and genuine physical harm percolate in a fighter’s mind to a degree that few who have not lived the experience can reasonably quantify. Far from being a mere test of physical skills then, boxing is perhaps [...]

Roy Jones Junior will not face Bobby Gunn on Dec. 4th as planned, will box in Russia on Dec. 21st instead

Living legend and future Hall of Famer Roy Jones Junior was originally set to attempt to keep his fading career alive by facing ‘bare knuckle champ’ Bobby Gunn in Philadelphia on December 4th.
