Knockout of the year (thus far)

Don’t ask me how Fernando Montiel was able to get up after this one hitter quitter. You’d think being out cold on the mat, twitching is grounds for the ref to stop a fight. Unfortunately we all know how boneheaded boxing officials are when it comes to protecting the safety of fighters. Let’s just hope no further damage was accumulated after Fernando got up and took two more big shots before the fight was inevitably called to a halt. Nonito Donaire with KO of the year as February 20th.

Roy Jones Jr. on Dana White…

Little clip of Roy calling Dana White out on his double standard regarding Floyd Mayweather in the UFC and Anderson Silva boxing. Not much has become of this story since Anderson first challenged Roy last month. Maybe Roy taunting Dana White will get something poppin.

Anderson Silva vs. Roy Jones Jr?…

1185452717roy-jones7.jpg

“We respect Jones’ boxing ability and think he’s one of the best, but we’re tired of different boxers saying that MMA fighters aren’t technical. Anderson would love to fight Roy Jones in a boxing match under boxing rules to prove that MMA fighters are technical too.” — Anderson’s manager

I honestly thought this whole Anderson Silva wanting to box thing would die down quick, but apparently Roy Jones’ camp has expressed interest, mainly because of the PPV numbers it would potentially draw. I’m not joking when I say that Silva probably has a better chance against one of Roy’s sparring partners. I’d buy this PPV nonetheless, especially if they mixed it up a little and had boxers entering the cage as well. There’s no doubt that this type of event would draw millions. Maybe it would put an end to the MMA vs. boxing debate and show people that athletes stick to their own sports for a reason.  Click here for the MMA Weekly story.
