Date Set for Jones-Hopkins Rematch

Well it only took 16 years to set the date for this rematch. The first time Roy Jones Jr. and Bernard Hopkins fought was in 1993 and Jones won a unanimous decision over Hopkins. Now at the young and vibrant ages of 41 (Jones) and 45 (Hopkins), they will finally square off again. The only difference is currently Hopkins is pound for pound one of the best fighters in boxing right now, and Jones is washed up. These future Hall of Famers have a lot of pride at stake, which always makes for good fight. The bout will be aired via HBO Pay Per View, on April 3rd at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The production will be handled by Golden Boy, which means their broadcast team will call the fight and there will be no replay on HBO. This one will have to be watched live!

  1. I haven't seen Jones fight in awhile. I'm sure he still has some fire in his gloves, but he doesn't have the same swagger. I used to think he was unbeatable. His past few fights have been embarrassing to say the least. I would've paid anything to see this fight back in the day, but now I couldn't care less. The Executioner will win decisively and probably knock 'em out in the first couple rounds. Hopefully that'll send Jones into retirement for good.
