Roy Jones-Rampage Jackson in Play For Bellator PPV
By Edward Chaykovsky
Former four division champion Roy Jones Jr. (56-8) will finally get to fight a big name in Mixed Martial Arts, but it won't be the recently defeated Anderson Silva. According to a report by MMA Junkie, Viacom is expected to announce a fight Bellator pay-per-view headliner between Quinton "Rampage" Jackson (32-11 MMA record) and Roy Jones Jr. Early details suggest the fight is going to be a boxing match, scheduled for the end of the year. The date and the weight has not been revealed.
"We've been talking to Roy and his people over a potential 'Rampage' vs. Roy fight for over seven months. If it happens, it would be an incredible fight. Boxing and MMA have both been discussed, and (Bellator Chairman and CEO) Bjorn (Rebney) has been in these discussions every step of the way. I can't say much more than that. We'll see what happens," a source involved in the negotiations told the MMA outlet.
Actually good fight lol 50/50. Roy still has the ability to outbox him all day but all Rampage needs is that one hook. I wonder how wild this place would get if Rampage actually caught him [SIZE="1"][I]Posted from Boxingscene.com App…Comment by BS BadBoy on 07-26-2013
Just because RJJ is a boxer and Jackson was MMA for most his career doesn't mean anything. The man had respectable punching power and was still very much a stand up boxing type fighter in his time on the MMA…Comment by hayZ on 07-26-2013
RJJ can beat him in Boxing. Rampage has power but thats it, he is honestly slow and telegraphs his punches. He's got that left overhand counter or a left hook. No jab, no combinations, no speed.Comment by londoner on 07-26-2013
Hope both washed up vets earn well from the exercise but let's get one thing straight here and now - the age of miracles has long since passed, so no way is this going to be "an incredible fight."Comment by BlueBaureit99 on 07-26-2013
[QUOTE=Badzi1987;13589715]Does anyone even know how hard Rampage can punch? The guy has crazy power in his fists. He will absolutely murder Roy Jones![/QUOTE] I saw quite a few of Rampage's fights and I didn't see him as a sick puncher.…Post a Comment/View More User Comments (54)
