Starting, um, soon here, Bad Left Hook will have live round-by-round results and scoring for the Denis Lebedev vs Roy Jones Jr fight live from Moscow.

Here's how Brick called the fight the other day:

On Saturday afternoon, the shell of a faded Roy Jones Jr. travels to Russia to take on hard hitting cruiserweight Denis Lebedev.  Lebedev is a much more punishing puncher than Danny Green, and is also technically a better fighter than Green.  I doubt this one ends well for Roy. ... The real question for me is whether Jones can make it to the second round.  I'm guessing he can't, and I'm guessing this won't be of the referee stoppage variety.  Lebedev KO-1

Here's one of the several times I personally called the fight out come:

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.

But we'll be here to find out what happens when 42-year-old, chinny Roy Jones Jr takes on one of the best cruiserweights in the world.
