Just when you thought it couldn't get worse than Harrison...

ROY JONES is hoping he can persuade world heavyweight champion David Haye to fight him at Wembley next year when they meet today in London.

American legend Jones, 41, who won world titles from middleweight to heavyweight, is confident he can talk WBA king Haye - who faces Audley Harrison next month - to accept the money-spinning clash.

Jones revealed: "I am meeting David and will tell him that we can give the world a great fight. I want one more run at the title."

Might only be a Sun article, but if this even comes close to happening, I'm going to drive down to London and try to line up a World title shot for myself...!!

What is happening to the once great sport of boxing these days? This fight would be insane, and the onus would be on the BBBofC to not allow it to take place.

 

Could someone have Jones humanely destroyed or something? The man needs putting out of his deluded misery. If that means a bullet in the back of his skull then so be it. He's gonna get killed in the ring if he fought Haye anyway.

I thought Wlad had managed to call Haye's bluff by taking Chisora out of the equation, but this just gives Haye another get out of jail card, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him take it nowadays.

It's a piss poor fight, and hopefully he at least realises that.

If Danny Green can put him down and out inside a minute, then Haye will muller him.

Roy wanting the fight in London makes me believe this report is somewhat valid because his latest PPV fight was "delayed" due to a supposed injury, yet, rumours say the fight was cancelled altogether because it wasn't pulling in any sales.

 

If Roy fought here, and against Haye, as ticket sales have proven for the Harrison fight, Haye can fight almost anyone and he will make a lot of money so imagine how much Roy Jones would bring.

 

The only problem is the 50% tax Roy would face fighting here.

Skav-

I'm disappointed to hear that Roy vs Haye would still be an attraction over there. If that's true, and you folks would buy ANY Haye fight, then I wouldn't blame David for bringing over all the Jones', Tarvers, and any other undersized HW Pretenders and fighting them ALL.....and the blame would be on the Fans, and not him. I really hope (almost PRAY) that your wrong on what the earning potential of that fight would be.

Team David Haye: Roy Jones is Shot, No Possible Fight

 

By Mark Vester

 

According to Dave Coldwell, "Head of Boxing" for David Haye's promotional company, Hayemaker Promotions, there is absolutely no interest in a possible fight with former four division champion Roy Jones Jr. In a previous report, Jones told UK paper The Sun, that he planned to have a face-to-face meeting with Haye in order to convince the WBA champion to give him a title shot in 2011.

 

Coldwell says Jones is a "shot" fighter and Haye would not entertain a possible fight between the two of them. Haye defends his title on November 13 in Manchester against 2000 Olympic gold medal winner Audley Harrison.

 

One fighter who is willing to unretire to fight Jones, is former light heavyweight champion Clinton Woods. Jones stopped Woods in 2002. Coldwell thinks Jones is beyond his last legs. He gives Woods the edge to beat him if the two ever fight again.

yeah but didn't David Haye also come out before the Audley fight was signed stating he won't be fighting Audley and all the rumours are rubbish?

 

Even his minder told me that in Vegas JMM v Diaz

This fight won't happen - it is just a step to far for Haye to take and get away with.

 

The rap-video featured in a previous post was entertaining, but maybe for the wrong reasons. I do recall Nigel Benn venturing into the music world, though again it was something I wouldn't buy.

 

Roy Jones Jnr will be a boxing legend for many a year to come. It is time he stepped back and made way.

What worries me about this story is that Haye accepted the Harrison fight!

 

I'm a massive Haye fan and I can see logic in fighting Audley, although I was/am against it. It was discussed that Haye was tied into a 3 fight deal after the Valuev fight with King and Sauerland so anything he makes is being split with those guys at the moment. Ruiz in the first fight which I believe was a mandatory defence, Harrison next up in what most believe to be a low risk high reward match up, so what for the third and final fight of this deal? It scares me to say it could be Roy Jones, another low risk (even lower than Audley) and high reward fight, meaning everyone will make the right money from it and Haye should still come out as the WBA champion, leaving him free to negotiate with K2 knowing he wont have to split his money with DK and WS.

 

It is a scary thought I know, even as a Haye fan I wouldn't be able to defend that fight if it was ever made. I'm guessing the WBA might make Haye fight another mandatory though, so that might server as his 3rd fight under DK and WS?

 

Roy Jones shouldn't be allowed to fight anyone, anywhere in the world, let alone a heavyweight.

I have a feeling he'll fight Chagaev next, which given the circumstances, isn't even that great a fight anymore.

Ruslan had plenty of credibility but losses and inactivity have put paid to that.

 

If it's only because of a supposed 3 fight deal that Haye is trying to get some bullsh*t opponents out of the way, he should have got them done and dusted months ago.

His lack of activity is also costing him, because Harrison is still nowhere near an acceptable opponent to get in this length of time.

A Summer "tiding-over" type of fight, I might have almost accepted (probably still not, but hey). He needs to get them done with now if that really is the case, but I suspect it's just another excuse.

interesting... i never realised those were the stipulations of the Sauerland contract

 

are you sure it wasn't just the rematch clause that was in the contract? can't see David being willing to split the earnings from his next 3 fights with 2 promoters he isn't even linked to

I'm not 100% sure but I believe they had 3 fight options on him. Rob might be able to provide more info on that, I know we discussed it previously.
