By Tim Kudgis

Former four division world champion Roy Jones Jr. (56-8, 40KOs) has become the latest veteran to express their desire to fight the cash cow of boxing, WBC welterweight and WBA junior middleweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (45-0, 26KOs). Jones, 44-years-old, returns as a cruiserweight on December 4th in Philadelphia against Bobby Gunn. Recently, 48-year-old IBF light heavyweight champ Bernard Hopkins said he was willing to drop down to 160 for Mayweather. Jones is unable to get down that low, but he would go down as far as 170.

The fight has no chance of ever happening but it's interesting to see fighters from every division, high and low, looking for a Mayweather shot.

"[A fight with Mike Tyson], when I was heavyweight champ of the world, would have been the first fight where they could have charged $100 dollars on pay-per-view. And the other one that you could charge that kind of money for - is Roy Jones against Floyd Mayweather, because Roy Jones Jr. knows how to whoop that particular style that he fights. Roy Jones Jr. is a OG at this game. Roy Jones Jr. did something that nobody has ever done - he turned pro as a junior middleweight and became heavyweight the champ of the world. I couldn't get no lower than 170 for [Mayweather]. If he says no to 170, then I don't want to talk about it no more," Jones said.

Big Deal. Everybody wants that check. Plus, name 5 ATG's who actually knew when to hang 'em up. It's like a Van Halen reunion tour. nothin new goin on here. for the record tho, even a prime Jones vs. a prime Mayweather is a total mismatch in Jones' favor. size, strength, speed and especially power

Floyd ain't putting no money in BHop or RJ's pocket so there is no need for anyone to think that Money May would even waste his breath talking about it. Although I like both Jones and BHop I just think it's a little embarrassing for the current Light Heavyweight champ and a former Heavyweight cha...

Id move up to 170 for Floyd.

Is this a quote from 2002 lol? Roy hasn't been relevant in years. I hope he's not struggling financially.
