Jesus- You could fight that in a phone booth. Those guys wouldn't need much of a ring.

Unquestionably prefer to see that than Roy Jones and Calzaghe. If I'm Calzaghe though, and the money is close, I fight Jones and walk away. Who needs a beating at 38?

The Roy Jones fight looks like it won't happen.
Why?
Because Roy wants too much money, go figure. If he demands too much, the fight doesn't happen and he saves himself from going over there and probably losing.

Let me translate for you.

"Wants too much money" = "I'm washed up and can't win, but still want my name in the papers"

Fired up to see your boy Gamboa fight on HBO tonight though.

would have thought Calzaghe would want a tougher opponent for one of his last 2 fights (or maybe his last ever)

Calzaghe really has no business fighting Roy Jones anyway in my opinion.
I agree that Roy is doing it to avoid the fight.
I love Roy Jones and really have no interest in the fight as a true boxing fan.

Calzaghe vs Pavlik is a no brainer.
