Roy put on a clinic, it was almost sad, (not quite as bad as the clinic Calzage put on Lacy) but an embarassment none the less.

If Lacy does not throw in the towel soon, I suspect he may get seriously injured in the ring. I can not understand why some boxers do not know when to walk away? Money? Pride? Stupidity?

I watched it, it was like watching the early stages of Apollo Creed toying with Rocky...patting his head on the inside, turning his head to talk to fans, and just having fun. It was more like an exhibition sparring match. Lacy is just so one dimensional and I don't see any big money fights for him down the road. However I think many of them stick with it out of love of the sport but also in hopes of landing that one big payday. So I guess it's a combination of money, pride and passion.

I didn't see it but if Roy Jones chose Lacy as an opponent, you can bet that Lacy had nothing and posed absolutely no threat to him. We always knew that Lacy was very, very limited in his skills. But I'm not at all impressed with Roy Jones either. He's damaged goods, seeking out opponents with somewhat of a name who can't possibly beat or hurt him. I never like Jones and his style of fighting. I think that started when I watched him fight James Toney.

No, I didn't see this fight, but I knew what the outcome would be, and didn't expect any surprises.

Lacy was a punching bag in that fight.
