Former four division world champion Roy Jones Jr. is biting his lip as he counts down the days for Saturday night, when WBO super featherweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko defends his title against Guillermo Rigondeaux in an ESPN televised main event from The Theater in Madison Square Garden in New York City.
From a historical standpoint, this will be the first fight in boxing history between boxers who have each won two Olympic gold medals.
The winner of Lomachenko (9-1, 7 KOs) vs. Rigondeaux (17-0, 11 KOs) could very well become the new pound for pound king - a position that Terence Crawford occupies on many lists.
Two amateur boxer legends, two world champions, two Olympic champions.
Jones believes it's the best fight ever made, at least on paper.
"I hate to say it, but I've got to be honest with you and tell it how I call it," Jones told CBS Sports' "In This Corner" Podcast. "To me, on paper, this is the best professional fight that has ever been made."
"You've got two guys that have two gold medals. We have enough of a hard time getting one guy and one other guy with a gold medal in the ring. We've got two guys with two gold medals. Almost one thousand amateur fights between them and probably a handful -- you can count on two hands -- how many [amateur] losses there have been between them. That is incredible."
Rigondeaux, who is currently the WBA champion at 122-pounds, is moving yp by two full weight divisions to challenge Lomachenko at 130.
Jones does not believe that weight will be a factor in the contest.
"When you've got almost 1,000 amateur fights between them, weight shouldn't be a factor at all," Jones said. "I'll tell you why I think weight shouldn't be a factor: Rigondeaux punches so hard that he has broken two guys' eye sockets. He broken two eye sockets -- two! Two, let's get this right. Two eye sockets," Jones said.
"Do you know how powerful you have to be to be breaking eye sockets and jaws? He done broke two eye sockets and a jaw so do you think jumping weight classes makes a difference? When you have punching power, weight ain't necessarily the issue. It's about strategy. Who is going to be smart enough to strategically out maneuver the other person and who can put their best punches in the best places?"
