Hopkins-Jones 2

In what can only be termed professional boxing's version of the seniors tour, tonight Bernard Hopkins, 45, squares off against Roy Jones, Jr., 41, in a rematch 17 years in the making in Las Vegas, Nevada. Both fighters are clearly past their prime but I expect Hopkins to dispatch Jones in one of the early rounds because of the two aging combatants, Jones is clearly on the decline having suffering devastating knockout losses in recent bouts. Needless to say, I will refrain from the $50 pay-per-view and await the result on ESPN's Sports Center and perhaps see entire bout later on HBO's telecast.

I miss the old Roy Jones. Boxers, as they say, ne'er know when to quit
