Roy Jones Jr. is an eroded boxing legend

Claiming to “still got it,” shopworn boxing icon Roy Jones Jr. will throw fists with Courtney Fry on Saturday night at the Kipsala Exhibition Centre in Riga, Latvia. Jones (57-8, 40 KOs) last vacated the ring on December 21 after earning a unanimous decision over Frenchman Zine Eddine Benmakhlouf. Comparatively, the 39-year-old (18-5, 6 KOs) Fry has lost two consecutive bouts since defeating journeyman Matty Clarkson in October 2012. “I know he’ll give it all he got, which is what I want from any opponent,” said Jones, 45, who was planning to run for mayor this autumn in Pensacola, Florida. … Continue reading

Buffalo Bills quarterback E.J. Manuel will struggle as a sophomore

According to ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio, Buffalo Bills signal-caller E.J. Manuel needlessly gained muscle and now tips the scales at 247 pounds. The 24-year-old Manuel, who trained with Colin Kaepernick this offseason and participated in all of Buffalo’s organized team activities in the springtime, underwent three knee operations as a rookie. Hence, the 6-foot-5 Manuel will require the support of a brace this autumn and likely lack some mobility. After getting selected 16th overall out of Florida State, Manuel threw 11 touchdowns, against nine interceptions, for 1,972 yards in 10 games. Even with a bummed joint, Manuel added 186 yards and … Continue reading
