Those who are feeling a little financially tapped out after dropping a fortune on the Margarito vs. Cotto fight are in luck.

The Roy Jones Jr. vs. Max Alexander fight is being streamed for $9.99 and is almost too great of a deal to pass up.

Jones wants to make a huge splash with his comeback, and even though Khan vs. Peterson happens to be going down the very same night as this fight, the bargain rate makes watching Jones mop up Alexander a bit more enticing.

Let's take a closer look to see how one-sided this fight is going to be.

Where: Civic Center in Atlanta, Georgia

When: Sat., Dec. 10 at 9 p.m. EST

Live Stream: UStream ($9.99)

Roy Jones Jr.'s Keys To Victory:

Don't take Alexander for granted.  Jones can't view this as a tune-up fight to get him back in the swing of things.  Alexander is 14-5-2, and though all signs point to a swift defeat for him, catching Jones napping isn't out of the realm of possibilities.

Jones getting back into the ring with a club fighter like Alexander seems like a no-brainer.  Jones needs to make sure he doesn't come in over confident.  Let's not forget how brutal the knockout he sustained against Denis Lebedev was.

Alexander's Keys To Victory:

Don't get starstruck.  Alexander is squaring off against Jones in what will, in all likelihood, be his last fight.  He's got a chance to show the legendary boxer that he should have stayed out of the ring after the beatdown he sustained last time.

Alexander is grossly outmatched.  Jones has 40 knockouts under his belt.  The numbers are impressive, but Jones isn't invincible.  

It looks like Jones wants a pat on the back before exits the boxing world.  Alexander has to make sure he doesn't play the part by submitting before he steps into the ring.

Under Card:

Chris Howard vs. Floriano Pagliara
Ryan Coyne vs. Dante Craig

What They Are Saying:

In the UStream promo, Jones says, "I got a whole new ball game in store.  The best comeback in the history of boxing begins right here.."

Ouch.  Lofty expectations for a fight that isn't garnering much attention whatsoever.  Jones is not exactly stepping into the ring with Floyd Mayweather, Jr.  If he comes out swinging and drops Alexander in the second round, it's not going to be the greatest comeback in the history of boxing.

Main Event Prediction: Roy Jones Jr. by knockout

Alexander is a nobody.  He hasn't won a fight since 2007 and it's hard to see him walking out of the ring in a conscious state.  

Jones isn't the fighter he once was, but he's going to have no problem sending Alexander to the canvas.
