I think I've seen Danny Green fight once a while, while back.
But Jones is definitely done. He's been getting KO'd the last few years, and at the heavier weight division--in this case, Cruiserweight. One punch can end it with these guys.
Too bad. He was at his best at middleweight.
Anyhow, congrats to Danny Green. Australians have some very good fighters.
You know what man... i just went and looked on espn website.. and there wasnt any links leading to this match.. Maybe the Boxing Fraternity of the USA is censoring this story running on the news stories... i mean Roy Jones Jr is one of the greatest pound for pound fighters on the planet.
But if the Bernard Hopkins and Roy Jones JR super battle goes down.. this could be the wakeup call for Roy... Get in good shape and retire out his career with one final KO of his arch Nemisis Hopkins!!!
Here's the link to the ESPN article: http://sports.espn.go.com/sports/boxing/news/story?id=4705699
"Jones had been stopped just twice in his career, by Antonio Tarver and Glen Johnson, but Green warned ahead of the fight that he could end the Sydney fight early.
"I won't name which punch, but there's one punch, if I hit him clean with it, he is going to be knocked out for a week," Green said. "His speed can baffle me, but my power -- it can hospitalize someone. My fists are like bricks."
He called it. I watched it on Youtube and Jones really got whacked by Green.
As for Jones and Hopkins, if that still takes place, I'd put my money on Hopkins, this time. Jones was one of my fav boxers since the early 90's.
I saw that fight where he beat Hopkins the 1st time (unanimous decision).
But Hopkins (the ultimate cagey fighter) is still at the top of his game--and at age 44! I always root for Roy, but if they fight again, Hopkins will take him this time.
