Roy Jones Jr., Bobby Gunn Make Weight
Both fighters made weight at Thursday’s weigh in for the "Skill vs. Will" pay-per-view card featuring future Hall of Famer Roy Jones, Jr. taking on Bare Knuckle Legend Bobby Gunn. The show will be televised on pay-per-view from the Chase Center in Wilmington, Delaware beginning at 9 PM ET / 6 PM PT.
The 48-year-old Jones Jr. continues to step into the ring, much like his old rival Bernard Hopkins who only retired in December at the age of 51.
"I am in very good shape for the first time in four or five years," Jones said. "I feel better than I have felt in a long time. I know I have my hands full, and I know my hands are ready for battle. I know this man is coming to bring it. But that’s what we live for; that’s what we love."
