Roy Jones Jr: 'I Don't Look 40, Hopkins Looks Like He's 52'

ROY JONES JR. MEDIA DAY QUOTES
From Pensacola, FL

Bernard Hopkins is a shark.  He’s a bottom feeder.  He’s catfish.  He’s waiting around for someone to die, then he’ll bight into it.  If something is dead, he’ll try to taste it.  If something is alive, he doesn’t want any part of it.  If something is close to dead he’ll try to eat it.
 
He wanted to wait until I was done.  He didn’t have anywhere else to go and now he thinks he’ll get his revenge and ride out into the sunset.  That’s the only way he is looking at it.  It won’t be happening that way but that is the plot.
 
You are going to see the same thing that happened last time.  The only difference is you’re going to see him go down this time.  I am too young to be messing around with a guy that old…and as cut as I am.  He can’t mess with me.  I don’t even look like I’m 40 yet and he looks like he’s 52.
 
He’s a crazy man.  That’s just the way he is, but I’m crazy too, just in a smarter way.  That’s how I beat him the first time and he knows it.
 
He’s thinking Roy’s finished and all I’ve got to do is catch him behind the head and I’ve got him.  He’s thinking “I’ll try to get inside, rough him up, hurt his shoulder, hurt his hands…try to physically hurt him so he can’t use both his hands on me.  The I’ll hit him behind the head and knock him out.”  That’s his whole game plan.  Take my shoulders out, hurt my elbows and hurt my hands then hit me behind my head to take me out…and that won’t be happening.  That’s all he has.  He doesn’t have anything else.
 
It will last until I’m ready turn the lights out.  When I hit the switch.  FLICK.  (singing) Turn out the lights and light a candle (laughing).

I like what roy is doing to promote this fight, but he is going to be outclassed... Y'all must have forgot!!! No for real, bernard is too fast roy has lost his head movement and has lost some hand speed.…

Roys not even a shadow of his former self... that was like 5 years ago. Can't wait to see his rematches with Johnson, Tarver... Roy Jones reminds me of Leonardo Decaprio in shutter island. Who goes around like he's some…

I think Roy looks older for his age than Hopkins does for his.
