At first I thought this was a joke, then I saw it was actually something they are serious about and I promise you my face looked just like this.
The proposed fight would be in Jamaica and available on PPV. Because it would be a bit of freak show, I think people would actually buy it.
Not a lot, but enough to put a few dollars in Roy Jones’ pocket. Roy doesn’t seem to be worried about his health anymore, just making what little money he can.
Considering Kimbo Slice has just been fighting a bunch of Homer Simpsons, I don’t even know how the fight would turn out, but I envision some sort of train wreck.
Someone asked Roy would he thought about the fight and here is what he said.
“He’s a big streetfighter with a lot of power, so early in the fight he can be very dangerous… but as the fight goes on, my mental experience should take over. But for the first five rounds he will be very deadly,”
Roy and the promoters of the fight seen in the photo above seem to want to pit Jones in a freak show fight every couple of months and put it on PPV. They didn’t exactly put it in those terms, but that is the general idea according to one of the main promoters.
“We want to forge a relationship going forward and not just with one fight… so you can look forward to seeing more fights, whether it’s Roy himself fighting or helping young men get opportunities. But the aspiration is to have a lot more fights, at least one a year in Jamaica,”
The card if everything gets signed will be called “The Beauty and the Beast”.
