Former four division Roy Jones Jr. (52-5, 38KOs) is not ready to walk away for good. In his last outing, he lost a shutout twelve round decision to Joe Calzaghe. Jones had said in several interviews that he may decide to make a return to the heavyweight division for a major fight. Jones won a dominant decision over John Ruiz in 2003 to capture the WBA heavyweight title. He vacated the title a few months later to make a return to light heavyweight.

I'm not really interested, but in it, but I guess it's one of his only semi-decent fights left. The only other slightly marketable fight for him that I can think of is versus Hopkins.

I am hoping the WBA (or WBC cant remember which one) will review the Holyfield Valuev fight and overturn that decision and award Evander the fight/championship. He won that fight hands down.

I didn't see the Holyfield-Valuev fight, but I'm not surprised that most people thought Holyfield won. Just a shameful period in heavyweight boxing we're going through right now. Valuev, a modern day Primo Canera, ordinarily shouldn't even be ranked in the top 15. But simply being big takes a fighter far these days with the incredible lack of heavyweight talent out there now.

Roy Jones, I never liked. I'd love to see him disappear. I guess he figures he can outbox the sluggish Holyfield.
