It’s been a minute since I’ve posted a blog. Sadly Boxing has been painstakingly slow for the past few weeks with little to no significant bouts since the Bermane Stiverne – Deontay Wilder bout that took place on Jan. 17. Fortunately, things will pick up in the next couple of weeks.

Given the current lull going on right now, I decided to share an interview I found of multiple time, multiple division and ATG (that’s All Time Great for those who don’t know) Roy Jones, Jr. from 1995. This interview took place on June 22, 1995 during the lead up towards his fight second title defense of the IBF Super Middleweight title against Vinny Pazienza. During this interview Roy discussed his upcoming bout against Pazienza (Roy stopped Pazienza in 6 rounds to retain the title) as well as his career up to that point. Also during this interview, Roy talked about a Sports Illustrated feature of him detailing his tumultuous and what only can be described as the abusive relationship between him and his father Roy Jones, Sr.

This is a pretty fascinating interview. The discussion of his upcoming fight with Pazienza and his career was cool, but highlight is Roy opening up about the relationship with his father. This is one of the better interviews that you will see of Roy Jones, Jr., enjoy.
