Roy Jones Jr. is 42 years old, 54-7 overall, and he’s lost his last two fights in a row. Sadly, like so many other former legends in the ring, Jones Jr. hasn’t figured out that it’s time to quit and instead he continues to sully his once pristine legacy every time he takes the ring.
Luckily for him, most fans don’t notice.
Jones Jr. has signed on to fight yet again, this time against Denis Lebedev on May 22 in Moscow. They’ll fight at cruiserweight where Roy hopes the 200-pound weight limit will give him advantage over his 31-year-old opponent.
The way he’s looked his last two fights — a loss to Bernard Hopkins and this butt kicking by Danny Green — the only ring he should be worried about is the one he aspires to receive in heaven.
