Roy Jones Jr Raps at Press Conference for Lebedev Fight

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Well this is among the saddest things I've seen in a while.

Do you think Roy Jones Jr knows?

I think he knows. I think he knows what this all is these days. I don't think he's like Holyfield trying to unify the titles or be world champion or convince the world he's still great. Roy knows he's touring the world to give everyone a glimpse at what used to be a great fighter. He's not going to Switzerland and Denmark and acting like it's some big deal fight. He's showing up in Australia to fight a guy he took silly presser pictures with, and now Moscow to rap over a song coming off of a cellphone.

I don't think he harbors any delusions about winning fights anymore. I think it's kind of, you know -- it would be nice if he won, but he's not going to go all crazy forcing it when it's not there. And I think he knows within the first two rounds what's up for the night. I'm sure Lebedev will let him know quickly.
