How much more punishment and how many more humiliating performances will it take before Roy Jones Jr. hangs up his gloves?
He won the fight, but it certainly wasn't a sterling performance.
He was dropped in Round 6 and many people that saw the fight doubt whether Jones Jr. was indeed victorious. Even at his advanced age of 43, Junior was faster than Pawel Glazewski, but barely.
I had him winning a very close decision, but what does it really matter at this point?
He's in the ring with an unknown replacement. His original opponent couldn't fight due to being jailed just before the fight for his alleged role in a prostitution ring. I'm not sure it would have mattered either way. The display was not a pretty one.
Roy Jones Jr. tried to entertain the crowd. He danced, he postured and posed, but none of it could mask the fact that he's done.
Jones Jr. has always been a personal favorite of mine, but he's only taking unnecessary punishment by continuing his career.
Per Boxing Scene, prior to the fight, Jones Jr. acknowledged that his career may be nearing an end.
That's like being "almost pregnant." If Jones Jr.'s career were a pregnancy, the baby is about to start kindergarten.
His career has been over since he lost to Antonio Tarver the second time in 2005. Jones Jr. has lost seven of his last 14 fights, with four by way of KO.
That simply isn't good. Jones Jr. improved to 56-8, but his record was the only thing that improved.
