Roy Jones Jr. Open To Fight Kimbo Slice; Rooting For Toney Against Couture | Steve Rattlesnake
I just wanted to get your quick thoughs on your fellow Floridian, Kimbo Slice, announcing that heíll be making his pro boxing debut later this year.
RJ: I think itís a beautiful thing for him to try the sweet science. Iíd have to see what heís weighing if he wants me to come in there and give him a try at it, but if he want it that bad, I might give it to Kimbo. Itís a great opportunity for him. Itís a great fight for Florida. Boxing needs all it can get right now, so if the fans get interested in wanting to see that, we can do that.
Kimboís got a lot of heart, heís got a lot talent, and it took a lot for him to get where he got in MMA. I think his main skill is boxing anyway. I think heíll be fine with it.
You know your boy James is stepping into the Octagon with Randy Couture. How do you think thatís going to play out?
RJ: Well, I think itís a wonderful fight. I think itís a great thing for MMA and for boxing because it gives us a chance to cross over again and meet in the middle and I canít wait.
RJ: I gotta go with my boy James.
