I think I'm sitting this one out. $60 is a little steep for me right now. Hopefully they will replay it on HBO soon. What do you think the outcome will be?

P.S....if you order the fight, PLEASE USE SPOILER TAGS.

It should be on HBO next week, and unless Roy aged overnight he will beat tarver much easier this time. I think the first fight Roy had problems from droping all of that weight, he won't have those problems this time. Tarver blew his chance last time, he could have one the fight but he had to many rounds where he didn't do shit, and that is what cost him the fight.

I don't think I'll order it, but I'd like to watch it if I can get some friends to go in on it. I gotta go with Jones. Tarver's good, but he's gonna get, hopefully, a Jones that is at 100%.

The last time Jones had a rematch, he ended it in a 1st round knockout. But that was a number of years ago and Tarver isn't anything like Montell Griffin. I'm picking Roy, but I hope Tarver pulls off the upset.

Any word on the undercard?

I'll catch it on HBO next week. I don't have the money to buy boxing PPVs. I already have UFC and Pride to worry about every month.

and Jones by a more decisive decision.

Not only is Charles Barkley not a role model, he doesn't use spoiler tags either.

I doubt it..Jones wan't to be a heavyweight..he even alluded to the fact that he can't get up for these fights against Tarver. If he's not fighting at 190+ in the next 6 months he'll probably hang it up.

Y'all remember the EA Sports curse? Whoever's on the cover of their videogames will get hurt? In Madden 2004, Michael Vick was the coverboy and got hurt in pre-season, sitting out 12 games.

Well EA Sports, put Roy Jones Jr. on Fight Night 2004, and look what happened!

Re: the knockout punch last night:

It was a very short, compact left-handed punch from Tarver that just caught RJJ flush and rung his bell, RJJ never did see it coming.

Can't really say that this breaks my heart - it seems like RJJ was fueled by his own ego these past years.

I wouldn't really go nuts and call Tarver the Best p4p - of course everyone will jump on his robe and put him on their lists (Much like when Forrest beat Mosley) but he won't be #1.
