    Why
    I dont really even want too see Jones fight again
    It must be for the money he is a good fighter
    Yet something has happened he has lost that fire
    From when I first saw him until now
    I just dont see it-Maybe he should make another RAP CD
    LOL

    I'm not even interested in this one...Thanks for posting it up Brother Pan....two pass their prime fighters fresh off multiple losses both skill sets eroding and both showing openly that they have no heart for combat anymore...nah I'll pass Roy and Bhop but thanks anyway for getting it done 12 years too late.......I'm more interested in seeing if JT is going to man up and go head and do the right thing...get in there with Wink.....all these top notch fights getting done he can't crawfish away can he............can he.......Panafrica tell me he won't drop that belt just to cash an extra check while avoiding Winky...

    Well brother Pan. I'll be headed out to LV for Hops-RJ 2. What I'm really anticipating is for Judah & PBF to finalize their agreement. That would be one heck of a fight.

    Ya know brother Red, I am interested in this fight, even though I know both fighters are past their prime (although Roy is further gone than Hopkins). Two past their prime fighters can still put on an entertaining fight, unlike a past his prime fighter vs a prime fighter (or up and coming fighter). I see this fight like the long delayed Sugar Ray Leonard-Thomas "Hit Man" Hearns rematched (delayed because Leonard never wanted to give Hearns a rematch). I look for Hopkins to get his revenge on Roy like Hearns did against Leonard (a draw which the entire world thought he won).

    Now about JT...I definately see him "trying" to drop a belt rather than fight Winky; however, that isn't going to work! Winky Wright already was the undisputed Jr. Middleweight champion. He has all the belts he needs, and is looking for glory. Wright isn't going to get glory by picking up a vacant belt against another contender. No he is going to get glory by beating the man who "barely" beat the legendary Bernard Hopkins. I'll have to quote another legend on this, as Joe Louis said: "You can run, but you can't hide".

    Well brother Mad Skillz, Zab Judah fights this Saturday on Showtime (the undercard of the Cruiserweight Unification Fight between Jean Marc Mormeck and Oneil Bell). If he gets past his fight on Saturday (which he will), then the fight between him and Floyd is on in April:
