(Jones vs. Danny Green, 12/2/09)
Roy Jones Jr. fought in Australia last night — or, technically, today — against 36-year-old Australian boxer Danny Green. It did not go well for Roy. Though Jones was a -350 favorite with oddsmakers, he got dropped early on in the first round and never really recovered. The old hand speed, the head that never stayed in one place long enough for opponents to even get a good look at it, all of that was gone as Green poured on the punishment for a first-round TKO victory. Said Green afterwards: "I almost felt bad doing that. It almost hurt me to do that to someone I look up to as a professional inside and outside the ring."
