STEP IT UP MR. JONES
Last Saturday night WBC/WBA light heavyweight champion Roy Jones spanked and schooled Otis Grant all over the ring. The problem with this is that it took 10 rounds for Mr. Grant to learn his lesson. Which is why Roy most step it up and fight the so-called big names from Europe.
The reason why I say "so-called" is because I am in the minority in not believing the hype from Germany on WBO titleholder Darius Michalczewski. I would once and for all like to see Roy hop a plane headed for Germany and
take care of business. He could then silence all his critics by either beating the pulp out of the WBO champ or get beaten by the German-Pole.
ONLY SHOT AT GLOBAL ACCEPTANCE
This is the only way fans will respect a fighter. Jones has stepped up the activity this last year, but he must fight the people that stand in his way to greatness. If Roy continues to claim he is the greatest fighter ever, then he must stop making excuses and start delivering on his gospel.
MOSLEY NUMERO UNO!
From the different looks I've had of IBF lightweight champ Shane Mosley, I would have to say yes! His fight with Jesse Leija turned out to last a little bit longer then most had expected. With that being said, I think Sugar Shane has the goods to be one of the greats.
BEAT OSCAR UP ONCE
It's too bad Shane was not a factor when Oscar was looking for bums at lightweight. You would have seen Oscar do a running jump of the lightweight division instead of the quick stop that he made.
HAS IT ALL!
Shane Mosley fights with a calm intensity. He will box you, as well as he will bang with you. Whichever way he applies himself, it spells disaster for any of his opponents. Shane is the man, and will stay the man until Roy proves me wrong.
OLD GUYS CLASH IN MARIN COUNTY REMATCH
This Friday night from San Rafael, CA, former world champion Greg Haugen will fight local hero Paul Nave in a bout that could only be held in either man's hometown. Everybody knows Greg Haugen is a scrappy fighter who
usually gives it his all, but last time these two fought in March he claimed that he threw out his shoulder in the early rounds after knocking Paul down.
On paper this fight looks like a lock for Greg being that he is a former world champion with a wealth of experience and good fighters on his resume.The only question will be whether that shoulder injury was real or Greg is just showing his age as a fighter.
The fact that Greg started fighting any and everything could make a big difference on how fast a fighter fades. It might be that all those Toughman events Greg entered are now catching up with him.
Don't get me wrong here, Greg is no where near being a top fighter he was in the 80's and very early 90's. But I still believe he has enough to take care of the likes of Paul Nave. Prediction-Haugen TKO 8 Nave.
THE BARF BAG PLEASE!
I can't finish today without venting my frustration over Oscar De La Hoya's postponement of his fight with Ike Quartey. First of all, where in the hell was the cut? I looked and looked, and looked some more, and guess what? NO CUT!
Maybe Oscar is one of those fighters that bruise on the inside ala Eddie Murphy. As I depart, I must say this was a pathetic excuse for delaying if not all together avoiding a fight with Ike. Don't be surprised if Oscar doesn't show up on February 13, this time claiming PMS.
I will never give "Super Puss" the benefit of the doubt again.
