As a Canadian watching US fighters, and a fight that should have been the fight of the decade about 10 years ago, Roy Jones Jr. and B Hop go toe to toe.

Bernard is the classic dirty fighter by reputation, but may I disagree in the way that Roy fought in this fight.  Both are on the eternal reputatable fighter list and this exploitation is nothing to what both these fighter were. 

Collin Spires reports after the fight.  "One low blow does not constitute a Reciprocal low blow.  B Hop has been known to be a combination of a Pernell Whitaker (hard to hit) and the dirty fighters like Andrew Galota (low blows) and showcased his age and the possibilty of being a name in boxing history," say Collin Spires.

Collin Spires noted of Roy Jones Junior.  RJJ, you are an amazing commentator and an amazing spokesperson for the sport.  "Roy, please hang them up my friend, you have too much to offer the sport for the future.  Time to help enhance the sport, not hinder it."

As a Canadian, 'Keep your stick on the ice and may your punches be above the belt boys."
