On Being Ruskie~Roy Jones Jr

What’s on my mind lately is Roy Jones applying for and being granted Russian citizenship. I hope he knows what he’s doing as he goes into Crimea to build a premium training facility to promote his fighters. Crimea is hotly disputed territory. I suggest Roy ask Vitali or Wlad Klitschko all about that to be clued in what you may be looking forward to.

It’s a shame really that such a wonderfully bountiful, beautiful spot is in danger of being seriously damaged by manmade conflict beyond the common citizens’ control who live there, but such destruction of nature and human life has always been our lot in this world as powerful self interests battle for supremacy without regard of the rules set forth by Marquis 0f Queensbury so many ages ago.

Roy has recently been quoted variously of wanting to challenge Krzysztof Glowacki for his newly won WBO cruiser title, or alternately Marco Huck who was obliterated in one of the most violent fights of this decade between those two big men. Roy is not a “big man” nor does he have his legs under him any more nor does he have the big punch to keep them off him. While admiring his warrior spunk that was somewhat MIA during the latter years of his prime, I thought he had at least one biological child or more that he should think about before attempting a return to the top level of boxing.

He was also quoted as saying he expects to earn some $2-3 BILLION dollars! Not to toss cold water on his ambition, but that just seems unrealistic. How much has Bob Arum made promoting the most successful modern boxing promotional company these past 40+ years? I doubt we’ll ever know that, but surely no where near 2-3 billion.

Go forth with God’s good graces as well as Vladimir Putin with eyes and senses on full alert. You’re a stranger in a strange land now.
