Roy Jones says it's GGG's last chance
Four division world champion and all-time Great Roy Jones Jr, who's visiting Mexico as part of the PROBOXTV launch, is looking forward to the trilogy between Saul Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady GGG Golovkin, as the final confrontation.
RJ, who's a verbal straight shooter, says that Gennady's advannced age of 40 is indeed a factor in the third fight, and that he's only stuck around in boxing this long to get a final opportunity against Canelo, so he has to put his all into this fight, prove everything… and then call it a day.
Roy says opponents are now launching body attacks against Gennady as he ages and slows down, and he must try to stem and parry this onslaught. Roy says that the styles of Dmitry Bivol and Gennady Golovkin are different, but Gennady would do well to emulate some of the strategies of Bivol plus borrow from what successful tactics Bivol brought to bear. Roy , who admires Canelo's power, says that Gennady must move around him box intelligently and dip into his skills set to fight smart.
Concerning the age factor and addressing the grizzled fact that Gennady is eight years older than Canelo, Roy says that Triple G must put rounds on due to his experience, but also take off others due to his age. Life in boxing doesn't begin at 40, and Roy is insisting: “Gennady must drag the most out of himself, because this is his last chance.”
Turning to the future match up of Tyson Fury Vs Oleksandr Usyk, Roy who himself is a former heavyweight champion, says this does appear to be a David Vs Goliath match. A good big guy against a good huge guy, but he smilingly insists: “I don`t think Usyk will be scared!”
