    This fight is heating up with Roy Jr, saying nothing and with Antonio Tarver saying everything...especially comments about Roy Jones, Jr. Below are a few samples.

    And don't forget about the infamous question Tarver asked Roy Jones, Jr. in the ring before their second fight.

    Given all of this, I think Tarver is in for a whoopin' and the humiliation of his life.

    That guy is running his mouth a little too much! That could mean a couple of things, I hope he doesn't embarass himself and get knocked out in the first round. I get the vibe that there is a little jealousy and envy that he has towards Roy Jones Jr, it sounds like something that might have been going on for a while in his career. I thought it was just competitiveness, but now it seems a little more personal. The media really wasn't hyping up his dislike for Roy at all, I thought that was just for promotional reasons.

    Roy Jones Jr is THE reason that Antonio Tarver became a professional boxer, Tarver even admits as much. He has obsessed with Roy his entire career. I do think Tarver talks to much. I appreciate a good trash talker, and hyping fights is part of the game. Still I don't like people to get disrespectful, and Tarver is approaching that point. He has given Roy all the reason necessary for revenge. Let's see if Roy can actually get it.

    So in actuality Antonio is Roy's biggest fan, lol. That is a twist, if I were Roy I would be flattered if someone obsessed with me like that.
