Boxing legend Roy Jones feeling the pressure ahead of Danny Green bout

September 29, 2009 American boxing superstar Roy Jones admits a looming rematch with old adversary Bernard Hopkins will put him under a lot more pressure to beat Danny Green.

Jones arrived in Sydney on Tuesday to start a promotional tour for his December 2 challenge to Australia's IBO cruiserweight world champion Green at Sydney's Acer Arena.

A four-division world champion, 40-year-old Jones is bidding to become the first man in boxing history to hold world titles in all five divisions from middleweight to heavyweight.

The stakes have been raised for Jones after he signed on last week for a rematch in early 2010 with former middleweight and light heavyweight world champion Hopkins, who he outpointed in their first bout 16 years ago.

The fight with Hopkins is reportedly dependent on Jones defeating Green, who will be making the first defence of his title.

"It puts a lot more pressure on," said Jones.

Jones described the bout with Sydney-based West Australian Green, 36, as a must-win contest, but said he would bring a ``whole show to the party''.

"You've got to understand I'm coming to do battle against Danny Green, but at the same time, I'm also coming to entertain the Australian people," Jones said.

"It's not just about a fight, it's about a fight and a fight I must win, but I'm also here to entertain."

While in Sydney, Jones and keen Parramatta Eels rugby league fan Green will be introduced to the crowd at halftime of Sunday's NRL grand final between the Eels and Melbourne.

Asked about the prospect of fronting around 80,000 league fans, Jones said: "I'm loving it, I'm loving it."

The American sportingly agreed to wear a Melbourne jersey as he came through customs.

When informed wearing a Melbourne jersey could put him offside with the Sydney public, Jones chuckled and said: "Well, good, good."

He will also visit Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane the Gold Coast and Griffith, with Green alongside him at most stops.

Jones has visited Australia twice before to appear in a couple of the Matrix movies.

"It feels wonderful to be back, this time under different circumstances, but it feels very good," Jones said.

"I was very well welcomed last time I was here. I enjoyed myself a whole lot and I'm looking forward to having a great time again.

"I think I'll be received pretty good, but I'm here for business, to do a job, and I hope that they receive me well.

"At the same time I can't be hurt if they don't. Danny is Australian, so what would you expect."

I really think green cannot stand up to Jones,he seems to swayin and out of the tough mindset needed in my opinion on watching him over the years,no expert here though..i could be wrong..Jones is tough though..

Not true, I watched the interview, I don;t think I've ever seen Danny Green fight, so not sure who he is. Obviously a top rated guy or Roy Jones Jr. wouldn;t take the fight. Roy is a great fighter, but I never really liked him at all, can't stand his cocky attitude. I think it was Tarver who beat him twice, and was glad to see it happen. If this fight happens, I'll be hoping Green cleans his clock.

I stopped paying attention to boxing when De La Hoya lost to Mayweather by a BS call.

War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.

War = Life

Roy Jones Jr is a has been. He should have retired when he was on top. Now he's a below average boxer.

Billy I don't think there is a boxer in history that stoped when he should have stopped, but keeps on going. Thats the sad side of boxing, but if was you or I and the money they would give for just one or two more??? Thats why you see them taking fights with unknowns that have a good fight record against never herd of's. The fights ususally are sparring matches quality, that give the big name millions, and peanuts to the little guy, but still his bggest payday. I'm betting Roy JOnes will recieve something in the millions, and Green might get a few hundred thousand, and all the HBO people will have a nice trip to Austrailia out of it. They always deny they need the money, but thats all boloney, they spend like they live, and it goes fast.

Guys like Jones and Mayweather all do the same thing with their money, Mayweather is known for throwing hundred dollar bills into the crowds. Thjey end up knocked out and broke eventually. If they are lucky they don't end up with dementia. How many old boxers have speech so slurred you can't understand them? A few make it to the top and still have money and their brains. Oscar De La Hoya is one of them, but even Oscar lost his skills. He still had the sence to start the new ventures, and even in loss, never got his brains beat out. Now a promoter, he started up the HBO after dark series. George Forman has to be the greatest story in Boxing turning his name into the Forman grill, many year product line for Big Man clothing, and his own announcing carreer.
