ROY JONES IN AUSTRALIA, SAYS CRAWFORD WILL EASILY BEAT HORN
Mon, 19 Mar 2018
Former four division world champion Roy Jones Jr has been in Australia for the past two weeks and has told that if there is a correct offer he would make a come back to rematch former world champion Danny Green of Australia, Australian promoter Peter Maniatis told PhilBoxing.
Jones fought Green in Sydney in December 2009 for the IBO world cruiser weight title and lost in dramatic fashion via a first round TKO when Green jumped on him right at the opening bell.
Green has been in the African jungle recently for the TV show I Am a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! and Green has stated that at 45 years old, he has retired. But who knows with a Roy Jones offer a rematch could be on the table.
Jones also said Terrence Crawford would easily defeat Jeff Horn when the two will clash for Horn's WBO welterweight title that will probably happen in late May or early June. The fight was originally scheduled on April 14 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas but Crawford reportedly injured his hand during training to force the fight to be postponed. Jones said Crawford will have to much ability and class for Horn.
Jones also said the planned Manny Pacquiao vs Lucas Matthysse fight scheduled on June 24th in Kuala Lumpur is a "very good fight for Manny" to take as it carries the WBA world welterweight title and he thinks Manny has to much "movement and speed and class" for Matthysse who is a big puncher but does not have the speed or quick footwork of Pacquiao.
Jones who is also a basketball fanatic who supports "all the NBA teams" stated 'The Greek Freak' Giannis Antetokounmpo is the number one player right now in the NBA that put a smile on the face of Australian-Greek promoter Peter Maniatis who is a huge fan of Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks.
