Like it or not, 42-year-old Roy Jones Jr is back in action tonight in Atlanta, facing semi-retired Max Alexander in a 10-round cruiserweight fight, which isn't being televised by a channel you can get on TV or anything, but is being sold for $9.99 via UStream.
Here's the info:
Fight time: 7:00 p.m. EST
Location: Civic Center - Atlanta, GA
Live stream PPV: UStream - $9.99
Jones (54-8, 40 KO) will almost certainly win, since even being a faint shadow of what he was at his peak, he's still better than guys like this and still always beats them. It's when he dares to fight a live body that he gets creamed, as he did in Russia on May 21 by Denis Lebedev.
Alexander (14-5-2, 2 KO) isn't a puncher by any stretch of the imagination, and also hasn't won a fight since 2007. He's 0-5-1 in his last six, has jumped from super middleweight to cruiserweight, and oh yeah, he hasn't fought in two years.
Undercard info after the jump.
There are no other truly notable fights, but St. Louis cruiserweight Ryan Coyne (18-0, 7 KO) will be in action against Cincinnati club fighter Dante Craig (18-11-1, 13 KO). Coyne was last seen by most in a horrendous performance against David McNemar in June, barely scraping out a win over a 38-year-old West Virginia fighter who hadn't even fought in nearly four years, and now Coyne appears to be working down to 175 pounds, as he weighed 182 for his last fight in October, and Craig has most recently fought around 170 pounds.
Roy's enormous buddy Gabe Brown (18-16-4, 12 KO) will also fight, facing a guy whose pro boxing record is 1-0 thanks to a win in 2008. Brown hasn't won a fight since 2005, and is 0-10-3 in that stretch.
There's allegedly going to be some MMA on the show, too? I don't know.
If I haven't talked you out of spending money on this card by now, it's impossible. But, like, Christmas, you guys, and ... you know, you could give the $10 to a charity or your paperboy or a neighborhood kid to shovel your driveway or anything.
