Bernard Hopkins has a message to Roy Jones Jr. that the two can break the 1-1 tie they have by facing each other in a rubber match in Russia. Hopkins believes that his win over Jones in 2010 was a bitter pill for him to swallow, and he’s having nightmares still about the defeat.
“RJ, rooster man. Whether he’s rooster man or RJ,” said Bernard Hopkins to Fighthub about Roy Jones Jr. “I’m going to pluck his feathers if he’s rooster, and I’m going to change his R to a JR., because he is a Jr. We can settle the rubber match. I think it was a great idea that was brought to me by some high powered people in Russia. Legitimate people, as my team researched. If Roy is serious, and can meet me halfway to where he is now. I don’t care where he’s at. If I’ve got to go up, I’ll go up halfway. He’s got to come down, and we’ve got to do what we’ve got to do.
🤯 54-year-old Bernard Hopkins and 50-year-old Roy Jones Jr are calling one another out for a trilogy fight in videos uploaded by Russian boxing chief Umar Kremlev, who says he wants to host this in Moscow. The pair first met in 1993.
