Rafael on Jones/Hopkins

Unread postby jclvd_23 » Thu Aug 27, 2009 7:35 am

I've always been a RJJ mark, and I've respected B-Hop for years....even if he is a prick (right Swerb?). Found this Dan Rafael piece pretty amusing, especially the last half of it as Roy called in to speak to B-Hop when he was being interviewed on the radio.

Roy Jones needs to stop fighting. He's on his way to embarrassing himself in an Evander Holyfield like fashion.

All anyone needs to watch to see how a Hopkins/RJJ fight would turn out is the fights both men had with Joe Calzaghe.

The irony of the situation here is hysterical though. A man (RJJ) who spent his entire career dodging dangerous fights, now washed up and into his 40's, accusing a man in Hopkins ... who has taken every tough fight ... of dodging him.

Don't go away mad Roy. Just go away.

Right on, Swerb. It was all over even before the Calzaghe beat down.

Watching that douche showboat on RJJ was pretty much the end as far as I'm concerned. How embarrassing.

Hopkins would have no problem destroying him now, time to hang it up.
