Why in the hell is Roy Jones Jr. still fighting?


Roy Jones Jr. used to be one of the most recognized and feared boxers in the world. Now, he’s a joke.

As late as 2004, Jones was 49-1. The only loss was on a DQ where he knocked the other guy out. Unfortunately, Jones has lost SIX fights since then. He is now 42 and was beaten by fellow old guy Bernard Hopkins last year. Before that he was embarrassed in a complete debacle by a no-name fighter in Australia with a first round knockout.

Still, there is someone in the world still willing to pay Jones money to box. He is fighting in Russia in May.
