Angry Roy Jones jr just can't let it go... will fight on this weekend

*source: Paul Magno Yahoo Sports

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/roy-jon...0036--box.html


Veteran four division world champion, Roy Jones Jr. (55-8, 40 KOs) is due to step into the ring this Saturday at the Atlas Arena in Lodz, Poland. However, he's not quite sure yet whether he'll be facing light heavyweight fringe contender, Dawid Kostecki (39-1, 25 KOs) or lesser replacement, Pawel Glazewski (17-0, 4 KOs).

Kostecki, who would be the favorite coming into a Jones bout, currently sits in a jail cell awaiting word on whether his charge of running a prostitution ring will keep him from taking part in the biggest bout of his eleven-year career.
For the 43-year-old Jones, though, the opponent seems to matter little. The former pound for pound great is looking for a paycheck and, more and more, has shown a willingness participate in these traveling circus road shows in exchange for a taste of headlining glory.

To put things into perspective, Jones has not won a major bout since decisioning Antonio Tarver in their 2003 first meeting. Since then, the Pensacola native has gone 6-7 in thirteen bouts with four of those losses coming via ugly, chilling knockout (vs. Tarver, Glen Johnson, Danny Green, and Denis Lebedev).

The fighter who once reigned supreme over everyone from 160 lbs. to 175 lbs. is now a well-paid journeyman and a target for every fringe contender with enough drawing power to ensure a decent payday.

Much like the old time baseball stars who would play exhibition games for the amusement of curious fans, Jones is now more oddity, curiosity than viable world class fighter. In the case of the baseball players, though, they were never faced with a Roger Clemens fastball or never had to pitch to Albert Pujols. However, Jones is often still getting in the ring with prime, world class fighters-- Something that turns a cringe-worthy exhibition into something potentially deadly.

For this Saturday's show in Poland, Jones is bringing 40-year-old former lightweight champ Nate Campbell and the 42-year-old three-time former world heavyweight title challenger, Jameel McCline, to the traveling sideshow.
As long as these fighters can pass their physicals and are facing relatively harmless opposition, it's hard to deny them a payday. But at 40+ years of age and with no legitimate chance of ever beating a world class star again, these veterans should be willing to walk away from the sport on their own terms and with all of their faculties intact.

Jones, especially, who was once king of the boxing world, should be willing to realize when enough is enough. His fights have become sad eulogies at this point and are edging ever closer to becoming tragedies.

Let the man do what he wants, he is training hard and trying to adapt his style at least. It's not like he is fighting world beaters who will destroy him, yeah he got KO'd in the Lebedev fight but he wasnt being outclassed the entire fight and you could make a case he was winning.

Do your thing Roy

Not all but many. Why? Sh1t load of $$$ in short time. Actual career span making big $$$ is relatively short. All the member of the entourage think the athlete is an EXCELLENT bizman now. Expense outflow same even after income diminish. Divorce and big alimony. $$$$ owe to IRS. It's the same script.


Case in point: Any idea who long Ortiz's restaurant will stay in business?

It's what he does. Being broke or not doesn't matter much. He's still being payed large thousands to do what he loves. I'd do it until I can't move.
