Roy Jones Jr. Confirms Steve Collins Fight Discussions
Share Click Here To Email Printable version Search BoxingScene Database 

Former four division world champion Roy Jones Jr, 44-years-old, has confirmed to BBC Sport that there are ongoing discussions to stage a fight against former beltholder Steve Collins, 48-years-old, in England in April. Collins last fought in 1997. Jones has really declined, losing seven of his last fourteen fights.

Jones  stated: "I've spoken to Steve and I said 'I don't duck or dive nobody', so it's a very big possibility. I wasn't looking for him but when he said he wanted to fight me I was like, 'OK'. I don't know where the animosity came from but if that's what he wants, he can get it. I said 'hey, I'm sorry it didn't happen when it should have happened, it wasn't because of me - but if that's what you want to do, I don't see no problem with it'."

Earlier in the week, Collins told alkSPORT:  "It's a fight Roy Jones needs. He claims to be one of the greatest pound-for-pound fighters around but he refused to fight me. I was very happy with my career, but the one fight I wanted was Roy Jones, and when that didn't happen I retired. He was afraid of me. I don't think he's a coward, but at the time he was."

Roy is 44. Collins is 48, and has not fought in 15 years. Digest that. This is a farce.

I actually feel more and more saddened every time he signs a fight. But I do remember a Rocky quote that sums it up. "We're fighters". He never had a plan B. When you've been to the top Id imagine letting go saddens him as much as his blind will brings us feelings of sorrow.
