IFWT_Jones Watkins 1

Yes Roy Jones Jr is still fighting and yes he won his latest match; the quality of his opponent?  Well that’s another story…

via the Bloody Elbow:

Roy Jones Jr. (62-8, 45 KOs) continued his comeback trail on Sunday night at the Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Connecticut. The 46-year-old boxing great is in his 26th year as a professional, and while it’s very obvious that he’s a shell of his former self and is beating nobody of consequence, he’s at least racking up some KO wins in the process. Against 12-9-2 Eric Watkins, the former middleweight, super middleweight, light heavyweight, and heavyweight champion put away his foe with his historically powerful left hand.

As long as Jones keeps fighting lower caliber fighters, then he should be okay.  Lord knows we don’t want to see another brutal KO like he suffered at the hands of Denis Lebedev.

While many are still calling for Jones’ retirement, he has fights against Danny Santiago (33-7-1, 19 KOs) on August 29th, and vs. England’s Tony Moran (15-6, 5 KOs) on September 12th for the vacant WBF Intercontinental Cruiserweight title

Oh and apparently Jones is still rapping.  He reportedly told everyone to buy his new album after he won the fight.  Well he’s certainly not a quitter…
