From his 60/40 fight offer to Bernard “the executioner” Hopkins, to his chicken fights and his attempt at a rap career, Jones Jr one of the best pound for pound boxers of his era knows a thing or two about showboating. Jones was a flashy, flamboyant boxer in his days. Smiling, putting his guard down because of his quickness and his opponent’s inability to hit him and showboating around the ring were just a part of who he was.
Canzano and Jones talked about being a commissioner in boxing and how he would regulate fights and stop allowing the fighters to dictate the fights. Jones also said for him just being in Las Vegas and the atmosphere of boxing is what he lives for. Jones next fight is in Poland against Krzysztof Wlodarczyk and Jones says he is more than ready. Canzano and Jones spoke about the NFL concussion issue and he says his mind wasn’t right from the beginning. The two also spoke about the biggest fight in boxing history that has yet to happen, Manny Pacquiao versus Floyd Mayweather Jr. Despite the public opinion in favor of a Pacquiao victory, Jones thinks Mayweather would beat Pacquiao. He gives the exact formula on just how to do that. Canzano and Jones talked about the difference in boxing and MMA. Jones says MMA is a blood sport and that this country is opposed to blood sports.
