(CBS) Roy Jones Jr. is the former Heavyweight Champion of the World and is HBO’s ringside analyst. He joined Craig Miller to preview the fight between Timothy Bradley and Ruslan Provodnikov, which can be seen this Saturday, March 16th on HBO.
Roy tells Craig that Bernard Hopkins is a boring fighter, but what makes him so unique is the way he makes his opponent fight his type of fight. There is nothing flashy about Bernard Hopkins. Jones Jr. told Craig that if Bernard wants to fight him that he would gladly accept the fight.
Roy disagrees with Harold Lederman and explains why Timothy Bradley is smart to fight Ruslan Provodnikov and a fight between Bradley and Mayweather doesn’t make sense because he hasn’t fought in over a year. Freddie Roach is Ruslan Provodnikov’s trainer and says he has the power to beat Bradley, but Jones says the speed of Bradley may dictate the outcome of the fight.
