"Asked roy jones junior and mike tyson. What is your take on. Roy jones in tyson. Anyone has seen the footage of tyson working. The focus pads lately says Tyson looks like the scariest fifty two year old on the planet What's roy jones is plan with tyson. Roy jones lulu lot. Roy jones lot roy jones was one of the most gifted athlete of all time and was completely dominant in his in his prime. But he's not a bona fide heavyweight tyson tyson. Pretty much is how does that first off. What's the weight that what are they doing. A catchweight where. Where's that thing gonna land. Well mike tyson. I spoke to him yesterday. Called me on my birthday. Which was very nice and A mike is lost one hundred pounds. He told me yesterday. One hundred pounds. Wow he's in fantastic shape and he says he really feels good about where he is and himself and you know his weight and his mental outlook is is just fantastic. I've been overseeing the gym. I'm going to work on that. Fight showtime nice enough to let me go work on that broadcast and so. I think it's really interesting. He's fifty four years old. He hasn't Fifteen years okay. Said since mcbride and he was done he was done after that fight and he just said it to me in the ring that night he said. I just don't have this in me anymore. Don't have that instinct to go out and be ferocious. Wanna do this anymore. So i think now the passage of time and getting in shape and you know seeing what's what's gone on with athletes who have extended their careers. Obviously and other sports are not getting hit like he is but to see just how well lebron james plays at an age Getting older see. Tom brady to see drew. Brees to see these guys now. You know lengthening their careers. You know it's an exhibition. So we'll find out but tyson did tell me in an interview that he would be willing to fight. If you know see how this goes he would be willing to fight evanger holyfield on third and if he does well he would consider one of the champions right now possibly a joshua or fury down the road and you know everybody can point to george foreman right. The our was wasn't fifty four years old But let let's see how he looks. I i know. I know that a lot of boxers of told me that what they see in the gym. Just the speed that they would not want to be hit by that.

"For. Fury to come off floor. Yeah. Come at the way he did and come back and win the rest of the round. You'd never had nobody that Tim before his life, i. No guarantee I believe he did it guaranteed never had nobody in his life to do him like testing period did that is like I? Think that's one of the greatest comebacks ever around without a question to have him flat like I thought it was over I remember watching at home what? The front of my bed going Oh twelve round stopped him in the twelve deontay two, hundred, nine pounds for that fi up which is crazy. Yeah I. Mean he about as light as anyone who's ever fought for the title and title Bene- title holder and then also you think about how many fights he won by K. Ko he won all his fights by K. always have one for there. Heard him though because he never had the box. So. Now, he don't know how to boxing go that way he owned. This week knows how to go this way. He never had learned box go that way, and that hurt him we met somebody that can fight going both ways. Gross way ties and. Like this second way. Part of what this straightforward yes. Well. Yeah. What would you? What advice would you give Deontay like if he came to you if he's listening this because I've I've heard that floyd is interested in training him. But if you came to you what what advice would you give to him? Well, we go back to learn how you our. Developing our left hand because once we developed a left hand, right? We, don't need that. Operate. With develop net left hand we developed a left hand make it become a weapon before the right here now it's hard to be the left hand we right to stop So how you would concentrate on lefty away right away how much time would you give him? If you said like if we have all the time in the world, it's up to you to pick when the next fight is. How much time would you like to see him spent working on something like that six months six months. Six months and nobody would beat him again. They have a hard time asking but it taking six. Would you want him would you want him to do with his foot work? One of the things about? Dante's he throws everything into his punches and sometimes, and that's what we change. Well on the left hand more on the left hand right now he don't think is a killer. He does Jacob. Looking at Kiel with the right we've got become do make him diverse. You got to be the left or the right, and you make everything used unit. Everything if human use everything of unit then is not good for him. So to focus on one punch can take everything out game that one were we going to do now? Now and his struggles with backing up and moving back what would you do with that? Would you have them concentrate angles? No. On Rye, we know how to fix it to but that's part of that chip right to how it used a left hand. They left hang on our to go every direction whenever we need to But the left hand is most important left hand and. Feet s defense. Now. Do you ever reach out to fighters fighter like that? Have a loss? No. Now off all our tried to reach out to woods. I. Forget the Guy's Norris will a nurse was about the fight logo because I knew it will be a good fight. In a I was going to reach out to him, but he has transferred any reach out to him, but I would if he would accept that because hard fight for him to fight and I know Leonardo is a good guy but he had a chance to win the fight but the way training to fight it took all of. It's it's interesting because you as A. Multiple Division world champion but also a commentator when you were doing it for Hbo you could point out little things right away. Yeah. Did you ever have fighters come you and thank you Thank me me what I told him told him. They need to get better at Timmy. I made him a better fighter that they listed county in southern mistakes that they were making. So often I can look at again, break them down right away. It's also got to be crazy for fighter to be fighting and I mean I know there's a giant amount of them that were huge Roy Jones junior fans, and now they're looking over you're talking about them while they're fighting that's gotta be a trip my Guy Andrew think it's Andrew Murphy and they ensure Andrew Last Navy but Andrew he always says they said I'm so amazed deal. I'm here taking instructions from you. Brian says it to soldiers they always? Happy, due to be. So I got another kid named mocked up Gaffe Mobile Alabama, and Waylon Wayland my next door neighbor fifteen years old. He's going to be a bengals tooth Oh but they love taking instruction from me and I enjoy solid. Well, it's obviously you enjoy in for them. That's first of all. It's an amazing honor for them but also it's got to be so motivational. Yeah you know I it is and I thank God for them to really see me still getting active at two one not like, wow, he still does it like that so. Now. We understand what you're saying because how can we be slower than him? He Fifty One We can't do it fast. So we got problems. Yes. y'All got major issues. Well, it's it's just beautiful to see how much energy. Enthusiasm you have, and that's that's really what life's all about right is it is by having energy being a positive force in the world and just helping the people you know if you do that, you're doing the right thing if you're not doing that in your almost wasting time.

This is going to be a gigantic fight to I. Mean I've heard so many people. That are just casual boxing fans that are excited I was cooling beginning but like I say once you you can only kick around so much then the hook comes out. I see myself turning green? Well, you always said that that is like two dudes inside of you. Right there's Roy Jones, junior and RJ and they started on waking. WAS RJ HE DIDN'T WANNA BE F- twit. When did you realize there was like a second person I've been with my whole life. I've been my whole our tried to suppress that person because that person will end up in somebody's penitentiaries. Watch not. He really think about acuity about nobody thinks. So. Do you think that this you develop this as. A way of is it just always been inside of you or is this how you dealt with certain situations in your life wake you had to like shut off parts of who you are. I think our real men have it just never tap into it. But. It never had been pushed to that measure which is why say? Society tries to make. US gilding. Because in a man like you. You got kids. Somebody's kid and you thought. Rg coming up. Against Him. So it's always there. It's just that you try to keep suppressed. Try. To keep suppressed but jingle kicking me with so much. The he coming. At once he started coming guess what he did like a pit bull, he has no off switch. Who Was it that far he fought Dude Jack Guy Shorter. Guy I. That's right. That's right. The second fight RJ came out. That was in the Nile Asian of course. Yeah. You just hunted him down. Of course. That's. Yeah. See can destroy hackles words Silk Industry can destroy. So the first fight what happened the first fight he got injured nor I hit him when he went down Wendy short right so I couldn't do down to tap again and I thought it was going to start Right now, we've.

"Squirrel. There'd be some schools that have a penis but no boss. cause. Bitter. Balls off the dead Daddy. Did it did happiness about in from ten to twenty five females? Every time one of them have. A little babies, he goes Biton at all the meals. Because he wants competition I don't listen but you gotTa know what you got noticed I. Get it. So this shows me. He can't do physically doing i Washington, do it to all these other guys who told you about for me? They can't beat. Charlie. Campbell. Getting's. Kemba stood. He ate better than them he ain't stolen. Punched them but in his mind he's cut. In their mind killings 'cause my dad has made them. So he to beat them down so low that they had no real fight baking them in the Monday gotta be second to my father works. I can't be that guy. The world, you never seen a getting route award and breeding. Daming now you see some fast giddings because they just fast naturally and but they're not gonNA rule the past because once you cut the ball. He's no more mayor. Dissolves like. I'd be saying. His night nothing personal Nobel care you do what you want to do. But for me I couldn't world champion. If I let my father meet me kidding middle any mostly So I could not stay there and become a getting like I watched them do before me. And expect to be Roy Jones. During that. You know today it just couldn't help. That's a difficult balance with some trainers, right? Because some trainers were fighters and they're tough guys. Yup, and they don't want the other gas past him. Yeah. That's a lot of one of the reasons why a lot of fighters don't make good trainers and that's why a lot of father and son relationships don't work with. The father don't let the sun grew up. In order to stop it from growing up, you got almost tournament to get. Yeah. So he'll go for anything and not fight you. Usually works out in the weird. It's very rare that a father son fight coach. Combination. Works tinkle his dad do a good job. Yeah. Well, his dad is on unusual cat his dad told him. You're GONNA just dance for two years like what they might have been more than two years. There's God gifted yeah. Well, I like a lot like joe cows academia would not gifted these guys never boxed but they may world champions out of the the new they've seen something. They knew what it took to get in there. The fact that he told his son did to take up Ukrainian dancing, and then you look at Loma csangos footwork it's off the charts. So God gave Him a vision before got to with going him. We've way before it happened. He gave me my father saying vision just my father's personality wouldn't allow him to enjoy the fruits of that vision. Did you ever resolve it with your father? No. Never know he's still alive Oh. Yeah. Wow. Yeah you talk at all. No Damn. That's gotta be weird for him knows now we. Stand the lying and I'm like I. Understand. Sons Roy Jones junior yeah. Boxing trainer and your sons, one of the greatest of all time and he doesn't talk to you. That's gotTa fuck with you. Well, he don't talk to you because you don't want to talk to him right. So it's not like he don't he he wouldn't talk to you if you want to talk to him, but you don't want to talk to him. You don't talk to him. He not going to chase you down to talk to you why would. I couldn't me personally as a father I, couldn't I couldn't handle that I couldn't Ed none of my kids why didn't may raise my kids with I was raised? So me all my kids we talk my kids can talk to me about anything I'm I'm like you as a father I couldn't handle that either but sometimes there are sacrifice but sometimes a guy like you has to come out of a situation like that you have to fight your way through the struggle of being dominated by your father to become your own man and then that's one of the reasons why you're such a bad motherfucker if I didn't beat that I never would have made him boxing Shallow Grady's Tim Tam did the one thing that I never could do? As well as their sure has walkaway. I thought God. Had Me destiny great so I had walkway. And Look what I'm GonNa. Indeed. What does it feel like after you ve already you're already all-time Great. You're already hall of Famer and now you're getting back into the ring again like what does that feel? Is it exciting? Is a new feeling. No right now got. I got telling you gotTa go to Roy Jones during RJ feick store. Dot Com to get a shirt like. OXYGEN FIGHTS TO DOT COM to Mr Y'all must've forgotten. Exactly. So it's like for me it's a whole new game. Now you gotTa do a little bit more promoting stuff. You gotta try to do a little bit more media work outcome talk you 'cause you always supported me. You've been wanting it if when people have have known as for being Roy Jones Person I can't you if I would do it. But having Mike, Tyson, fight for us to talk about. What better time to come see your favorite. So the always I've been trying to get him but I say I want to wait until we got something interesting to really talk about. We people you good people. So I wanted something big when I came in now get some. So having this Mike Tyson fight. has its advantages I'll do the timing and all was a disadvantage, but it does have its advantages because now we have a great conversation I be fearing I, listen I appreciate it I'm GonNa talk to you anytime. What is it like though when you see like now holy thinking about coming back he's training hard Oscar de la Hoya who that could be a fight for you to like if you decide to keep going with this someone who's more your size as well yeah. He more my size but. He looked at me like allocate might he's he's to be. Well. He Fox a middleweights ready for Bernard. You see that that's that's what that's fine. The Middle East so yeah. The different than me and they're the different Mike it's like. We look at it. The true fact is that. If you ask people and you can pull it up right now say look at this guy, this guy just got this. At the time. Who Going GonNa get again Mike Tyson again, Roy Jones again. And they'RE GONNA get Roy Jones Again I. Do. So what's crazy stuff? Did that how in the world not only do like basketball game fight met them in, bring him to the ring he got. Radio City Music Hall. Where Jones got so much stuff that he will win to be. Mike Tyson, will be right behind my tax cuts from knockouts. Are Unbelievable You so is that that's the two most. Entertaining guys over the last two decades without question without a question. You said, you learned that move when you put your hands behind your back who knock out when you put your hands behind your now James Toney oh no no no. Kidding you're knocked him out and you said you learn from roosters two. That's right. That's right. Who else learns shape from roosters and just? To me but see, you gotta understand this to leave it more today I'm also gonNA come for movies. Comfortable comfortable tag style cranes dial. ditoto delivered all these different things. So I said. Let me see acne incorporate the roosters in masta. Of Boxing Do you think this is one and done. Did this Tyson fight is one and done? Does it depend on the outcome or you just have to focus on the fight right now and then decide what else is going on afterwards, it really depends on how it goes because. You know I I'm like this man I think Mike is Awesome. Person and Mike has had its ups and downs in the world I mike is really no he he is Mike. Understand me. So you don't know what Mike you get right against him. So in exhibitions you prepare for this, you can prepare for. And know anything can happen Mike.

"Yeah, it was Simpler Times back in the day for me. It was one champion in each week class, but you got to also understand a lot of this stuff happened because of promoters sure because I was doing my own thing I could do I wants to do when I got rid now that's telling you call me. HARD TO GONNA, Fight Roy Jones or you just call me a either called me get a bill. I don't care what benefit is. It could be the National Walmart built. I won't it. When you go back to the days like how many were there was a two-day maybe. David ended. When I the other day Hagler vs Mugabe that was again that was a good fighter. He would ahead with having, there's a time in the fight where he hits haggard with uppercut snap taggers, head back and Hagley just right back at them like it was nothing like I didn't even work. Hegley wasn't in my data might dozen learn things from the kid and well learn from Hagler was consistency. He would same ruining white trunks and have to say Marvin Hagler every time. Yup If. You Fall Haggling guess what you're going to. Get. Headline. Yup. He was. So, disciplined too so disciplined. Yes I. Think he was training for Mustapa. Hampshire. Forget who is training for. But when I was a kid I was living in Boston and was I was watching this thing they had him on the news where Hagler was running down the Cape Cape Cod in the wintertime run in the sand dudes Screamin. War. And I. Got chills. I got goosebumps watching like just that discipline that man ad he was never out of shape. He talked about the whole training camp lower. Yeah. Every day every day every day. He had what a mind he had. I mean he just was so. It was just so fierce. You know as a champion but wasn't. What I liked about people like Marvin he was so consistent that. Not One time did not make weight right he woke up to meet you. He wasn't went down to meet you right. Meet him at one sixty he'll. He'll get. What's your name? Is One sixty come on. Yeah. Act that when he fought sugar ray and I kinda gave it to him. I, mean I'd have to watch it at the time I'd have to watch it again now as an adult but I remember when I watched it back then I thought he won the fight and he just said that's it. I'm done never came back went to Italy started making movies. You ever watched some of those movies watching but I see him every now and then there are Larry did in good shape looks good. Talks Great. I mean he has no problems at all. No, which is amazing. It's beautiful to see someone get out clean of cloth and have a new life. Yes. Yes. Yes. But for me for Marvan I thought if I looked at it as an adult too I thought the I should have been called a draw at least a best in Understood. Why should one because sugar painless pitcher before the fight the I'm not even supposed to be in here right right. So. He did. He's GonNa get two points for breath head on was going to get. Yeah. Because sugar painted a picture to the public the I'm not even supposed to be here with his most. It's always a problem judging underdog. Me and so that's that's why in the fans he also knows how to play with the crowd. So sugar use his brain and got the decision that night. But if you look at the actuality of the fight it either a draw or you probably could have gave the Haggar but because he was champ. I would've said it looking at it as an adult I would have probably scored a draw but both of them put on an immaculate fight in like it was a beautiful fight for me because sugar came back and like I said, he painted that picture like even be in here and he was really phenomenal for. Five years so he made it look like. I'm defeating odds and everything he did he it to such a high level that it made it look like he did. When you were coming up, did you watch a lot of films of of the Great? Lakes. Well, only watch a few guys and I can tell you a lot of the guys that was I used to watch Salvador Sanchez. Get because to me, he was the best offensive minded guy of what a tragedy that guy died. Years because my dream fight this this get. So pissed off about face not having like right now a May because coffered and spence aren't getting into the fight one-up what am I dream fights wolves sill patriots, versus Salvador sent both of the featherweight champion. Making. The two featherweight champion to best at the division I want to see them lockup. See who is there because I love both of them. I Love Pedro's because of his Bolo punches and because he's not say he's real more but dirty inside ring right. But Salvador has so much offense I wanted to know how is he going to keep off of him with the opposite? And the incentive to a unfortunately was killed in a car wreck and that that that just blew my make a fighter week they'll. Probably besides her that was my other make mega mega fight to meet the original horns led. An all time. Angelo Dundee's in the corner absorb that. Kid. And he goes out and wins. Goddamn epic who that was epic especially, because hearns at one forty seven could hit people and knocked him into another fucking dimension..

"Because what Eddie, he was young as Champa all tamped. To me he was one of the most explosive entertaining guys you wanna see because you never know what you're GonNa do and it's to say he's I'm going here with him right now because he's explosive entertaining and you never know what he's going to. Mean both of you in that, Nahshom? You know that Song Yeah. Mike Tyson. Roy Jones. Yeah that's a lie. Exactly. Yeah. I mean the very similar in that regard that you both were so dominant over your divisions when you're in your prime that those fights were like execution, of course, why didn't I find take place back then because nobody ever saw me coming to hit back then and by the time I did he was already on the way out of box. Hit Department so. People say I. Think they say someone told them out off, forwarded me in the fight. Wasn't far off for me we've been fighting. I tell people today like they was talking about what's going on with the zone and all these fighters this and man. Hours in today's her. And I was Roy Jones. Sandwich I. Am if they told me what we'll pay twenty, million four per fight for five days we get to pick the opponents I. Don't even whereby peaking opponent Y'all call me Tim would they don't fight will wait I'm fighting it and I don't care who it is. Just tear me win fight and what we need to be. I believe. That's who I am. So when they talk about I would've fought a know if they would be for me if I if might just say. That we put that's how bad I wanted to find him. Then people love to talk though they say stupid shit make sense. But that's just that's people need something to talk about I know. But I'm just say I. I'd be willing to clear it up because I was not offered to fight back I would have been if I would have thought may I wanted to fight my? He's the owner the hit we. Say No. I'm not giving you out opportunity. I'm first of almost mall guy coming up to the HIP way division I don't belong here. Anyway I wanted to do about it. Simmons did prove I could do or see if I can do it costs sugary and try to win the light heavyweight title and he passed out. Yeah. So he didn't win it. So of course, we always want to try our challenge. Also I want to see what the Scott withdrew field cannot win the title am I really debt good a as good as I think i. Maybe I. Am this. How difficult was it to get from two hundred pounds of go all the way back down to one seventy five that was the hardest thing I ever did in my life twenty, five pounds of muscle. Put on my make don't. That's the difference. If you look at you when you fought Ruis, there was nothing to be lost. Twenty, five pounds of pure muscle so that I fight I wanNA pure heart. We Talk Yeah pure heart. Desperate people and I had people even text me call me and tell me you know I, was a fan I like you. But like you a whole lot more now because I realize what you really are. I never knew you had that big of a heart that was a big transition for you. I mean, maybe a bad transition to go from heavyweight down to light heavyweight again, because you could see physically you weren't the same because of that way cut you're struggling and that was the talk of all the commentators. What is what is happening to his body that he's going from two hundred pounds ripped. Down to one, seventy five and then competing I mean you. You must have cut an extreme amount of weight for the wake like and there was this the day before weigh ins or the day of way day before but it didn't matter because they had pulled much muscle off. So you can't. You can't put their bag right? You know what I mean. So I couldn't put that back but was was was so. Ironic about that is that as we wolf He still couldn't get me out because my mask I got off is similar to say, let me because my mouth locked on something you can't get me. OUTTA. My mind locked in a week as I probably have been. My Mind said no, WE'RE GONNA. Get this and I. Kept It. And then you went and fought him again. That's I. Probably shouldn't have Carson my body hidden came back. And I didn't have nothing meant to to get out there. Call people say, Oh, well, he get your heart town. Nobody. So I'll fight again. Sure why not but I had nothing to gain. A little bit harder. So he close is got lucky is called good but I mean box for me though I wind was one of the most impressive my career because it's the first time I've had to win a fight with strictly my heart because your body just wasn't provided with their now when you were walking around after the release fight like what did you? What did you weigh when you start cutting down for the tarver. Flight two or three to three, and how did you do it like what? What? What kind of? Crazy cardio like what were you doing to try to lose all that way? Crazy Cardio's who advocated. On we ever did. I run two sometimes three tasks day chase down Yep. That's on the way I've lost soothes the whole town. Dan what kind of impact must have had on your body? Well, that's what people feel to realize. Now hear kids talk about what we could make way too we. Don't hear me off an old school..

"Brother door honored to have you in here. I've been a fan forever I noticed and I was GonNa tell you that I am very happy to be here for you and for me because I've been a fan of yours but I always love the support that you give me. You always supported me since day one you've been one of the best people can hear talk about me since day one. So I just want to say thank you ought to support for being. Thank you sir, thank you my pleasure. For, sure. I've been a fan forever like from back in the day. You know you know you saw y'all must've forgot forget shit. I remember all man I remember when you're fights were basically executions executive. News some years man where you would just like see how is this guy got a survive and how long and you you had there was a time in your career when you were at your peak, we you had devised this style that was so different than anyone else's very few jabs. You throw a lead hook no one knew how to prepare for because there was no sparring partners they can emulate it. Your speed was off charts. Your movement was off the charts. I think to this day the only person that copy box history that went a full round without having a single punch scored on them and not the best defensive fighter ever. Listen you. Know as I mean maybe Willie pep might have done that back in the day before copy. Copy box era nobody has ever gonNA complete route would I punch scored on? Him He ain't the best powerpoint or he's the best at least. And we know about offense. But I don't argue not just listen to what people say. Now there was a time where I would say like people would say, oh, but he didn't fight anybody I might the fuck he didn't. They just couldn't. They couldn't compete. That's all it was. You fought world champion site, the songs they make them look like nobody wants to forget i. It's you had such a strange style man. How did you devise that style Lemaire? It was a lot. My father was a fighter. Who was trained? By sort jump. In. The think. Some part of the armed services in a way, my father learned a lot, but he also learned a lot of things not to do. So. By learning those things, he was able to give me a very good foundation. With that foundation, my father had roofs fighting Russa's when I was young. So I will watch the RUSSA's all the time because roosters develop a picture and then people always talk about no fighting this that. They develop a pick on their own. Anyway they're going to do that anyway so I would always watch him. To figure out what made one the king of pick nor what made him better than wrist and when I learned what that was it was a few things. I figured out. Once I figure out I start emulating emulating those things in my boxer style. So from fighting chickens yes. What what was the thing that you notice? Well, first ball the one that used it was on top he knew a kid herself for the era. Of. Confidence that he wasn't going to be messed with. So when he fight, he do more faking lot more faint never let them know when he coming off Sunday goats. State, powerful estate same the whole day, and it's like anytime he about he did the same thing he used the same. Thanks same thanks and he often do things that other chickens did not do. But that's God given mandate eastern God gave him that. So if you learn his characteristics are watch yourself all day long. The Way Kyrie and he wasn't around. The we got rid of when CAM around. People say. The people used to think that I was very egotistical. I've never been an egotistical person but what was highly confident person? I'm God's gate. Rooftop. ME. Around guess what I'm. Going to defend my. TURF. That's funny thing to say to a world champion fighters. One of the greatest of all time egotistical I mean listen if you're not confident, you don't get to that place never ever possible. It's like you have to have a belief in yourself as he there's no other way if you don't believe in you. Yeah nobody. Yeah I was a fan back when you got fucked over in the Olympics. God damned. They ruined that. That was terrible. That was one of the worst Olympic decisions of ever seen in my life maybe the worst it was so bad but it was in Korea Right Yep Seoul South Korea in the Korean fighter Yeah God Tam. That was ridiculous. Well he got the gold medal clear and then you see the decision you jaw drops you know like, what is this? It hurt the sport of boxing especially Amateur Boxing Heard it because when you can take a kid nineteen years old, he defeats his rival clearly and you robin it really eliminates the integrity of that sport. Yeah. Still don't go back and fix it nobody to this day has come back and try to fix it. They gave me Olympic orders they gave me the Walker Cup, which is for the best box at the Olympics were. Addiction prediction. How is the best box here now wearing a gold medal? Yeah. It was. It was bad but it also was. In one way it made people really root for you. It was a blessing in disguise and understood that the the the second day I might cry whole first day but second were. After I went to the back and asks Hex XY interpreted X. Him. If he thought, he beat me because if you say, yes, the he didn't know it but he was gonNA. Give nothing..

Of course, the timing is gone in a quick quick twitch muscles don't file like they used to. But the problem that Roy has is if Tyson do hit him. His ass is going to. Asleep. He Hits Him.

"roy jones" Discussed on Ariel Helwani's MMA Show
"With the one and only R. J. J. Goes Down September twelve, I. Will Watch it i. have no idea what. What trailer is I'm glad it's going to be available on regular pay per view. It's Mike. Tyson. It's Roy Jones, I don't think fifth year olds should be boxing. I. Hope they don't punch each other in the head, but it sounds like they will sorta maybe I don't know a weird time and it's been a weird year and so here we are Mike. Tyson Versus. Roy Jones Junior. All right time now for everyone's favorite segment of the week, and as always it is brought you by Modell modahl-less Best Ya'll setting the gold standard for authentic Mexican. Beer since nineteen, twenty, five mode, Delo brewed for those with a fighting spirit. GST's minimalist off. So Ariel I want to urge people to identify words that they use on an everyday basis that may serve as a type of trigger word negative experience. Let me tell you what I mean. For example, one of those words for me is the word work. If you've ever noticed in a conversation with me, I do not use the word work because everyone usually has a negative connotation with. With. That word people like to complain about work to complain about their situations. At Work Yada Yada Yada. It's never really a positive feeling and it's usually much more negative and positive. So I'd never say I always say when I used to go to campus hey, I'm going to espn today I'm going to campus today because it's much more positive makes me feel more appreciative and thankful. For example, I'm very active. I never say working outside. I'll say that I'm going to go exercise because it just removes negative connotation that I have of that word. So I would urge anyone out there to find and identify words that bring negative feelings to themselves or feelings that don't make you better and true minimalist fashion, find those words, identified them and cut them out and find a creative. To articulate the same thing. I like that I didn't notice that you never use the word work. It's kind of interesting that you bring this up because you are on campus right now, this is the first time that we speak with you on campus me at home since early March. Early mid March yet. Me You and shale. We're having a good old boy last year in mid-march. Not really thinking anything's going to happen shale said, he'd drink corona virus if he could and. Different Times since I was last year does feel good to be back. It does feel good back. It's only temporary. I do get to come back for slack days here and there depending on situation that day, but it's a ghost town. There's not many people here. Just all the essentials I. Guess I'm essential. Now it's definitely different. And I definitely miss the normal life seeing you hear Powell and around buy me lunch and all those things. Yeah. Used to do that a lot. Probably Never GonNa see you ever again in person probably you know. Keeps trending in this direction, but nonetheless, it is good to see you there and i. don't have a word that I hate. Actually, there's a few words that I hate I do love the word package. I. Always loved the Word Package for some reason, you know what else I've noticed and I WANNA. Put a challenge out here to all the listeners slash viewers. I want someone to put together a compilation of you sang in your interviews. I'm just curious or oh, by the way because you set up every question like that I've noticed. Now. That's not a good thing if I use the same way to set up a question I feel like that's bad and I need to work on that. Yeah, you do it quite often i. mean, if you listen today's podcast, you're going to hear it several times. So I challenge someone to put together. A video compilation of classic troy thing to do like to point out of fault of mine, not to prop me. This is just amazing. It's such an interesting juxtaposition of the minimalist life to where you're. You're. You're like, Oh, positive. You know cut the bad words, yet you might be the most negative person. I know that's that's the fastest talk I'm a very positive person. Yeah. You just everyone throws praise at you all the time. I've got to keep you in check. You know sure. Sure. Sure..

"You were the best, but I thought it's too much for him to go up. Reasonably good fighters heavyweight Roy can't do this. Alcohol said No. He's going to beat them. And the reason is Cole was notorious he he was very well known for fighting anyone on a minutes. Minutes notice sparring anyone. He said the for Roy. I need some time before you ever moved to heavy. Because of the speed, he said no because of the power that you had that kind of power, but that was towers middleweight, super middleweight, even as a light heavyweight. This is a heavyweight and Tyson is built like a brick. Do you think you have the power at heavyweight to him honest? Call. Kept him under the night lull he dropped, voted appeal. He didn't drop Roy, but he got voted deal and I hit him with a shot and I. Think about the second or third round then made him tap Dan and he hit me about thirty pounds. Ask Him not. Roy The thing about boxing. It's different than. I've always liked the idea of a seniors store in boxing. Let the older fighters who can still handle themselves and still have a fan base, attractive crowd, and make some money, but without jeopardizing themselves against fighters who were in their prime twenty and thirty years younger right? But. Not Golf hurt business. You don't play boxing. There is the chance that someone could get hurt in there, and especially with the kind of emotional investment defense having you have Mike through the years. You know that that's like a scary thought. It's part of the appeal for a lot of people, but it's still a scary thought. What do you say to those like me? Who have concerns for your health for Mike South at your guys age? You you let me for you. Hit and sank. Santa me back in two thousand three while want to fight Mike Tyson because it was just as deadly then as we have. Now we still three years apart and threes apart now now. Don't get it wrong. It could be dangerous, but at the same time this. What we we've been hurt didn't our whole life. So what's dangerous tough I? Mean God best, but the people that are going down now from Kobe. Like. People that home, people gonNA have a lot to do. People can't do a lot of team sports. Because of getting infected some baseball I found out. They are getting infected deal. We WanNA give people entertainment. What with teams forces little harder regarding there are more people, but when you put two of the most entertaining fighters. Of decades in the ring together has to be entertainment and I. I think Mike and say the same thing I can say. We're willing to risk. Our health though this notion charitable part of it, but also give people entertainment at a time when people don't have anything. Nobody has nothing right now. There's no real entertainment. Going on tabs a hot right now. People stuck at home with nothing to do. We're listening about what would have happened. Had you put the bomb? And the explosive. In it same ten. What would happen with a bomb? exposal golfers. What would have happened? We can find out that. Roy. When Tyson released the training footage, originally, people were saying because you know great defensive fighters, teams, whatever people always overrate them against great well rounded teams or fighters, because mediocrity can't do anything with the great offense, it gets blown away and so psychologically and emotionally people from certain generation will always believe Mike. Tyson can beat anyone I mean. I had to have a serious talk. People like he can't fight Tyson fury. He can't fight those guys right now. Now, but I had to admit at fifty four. My God the way he was moving even in the training footage was extremely impressive I. mentioned to him when he went on Arsenio that time in eighty, nine, with with sugar, Ray Leonard Muhammad, Ali Ali was forty seven and couldn't move anymore. You know it was like an old man Mike seven years older than that and is moving like this. When you saw this footage of Mike, what did you think? Wow Mike still just as explosive as ever. Mike is just dangerous ever the only thing about it is when you've been out of this four for so long as probably the heart of him the goal of four twelve hour about and sustainment yet he's still good. Yeah has be. Power he still had explosives a very dangerous gap and he's GonNa be dangerous for all eight rounds that you've got to be ready to protect yourself because that is my ties. In terms of real quick before we let you go, Roy. Thanks for coming on in terms of what we can expect because it is headgear, an eight round exhibition right in terms of what we can expect in terms of your level of competitiveness scale of one to ten. What are we to expect in terms of your readiness to fight and level of competitiveness and serious about this as an athletic competition? Expect twelve because you Mike Tyson. If I was little, my sat or somebody that was legit. Weight such as myself. Then you'd probably get about eight a, but it's like this Mike, Tyson. On me, I was like you have to Moise of Mike, Tyson Mike Zach turnover five seconds. Who will say you know bad, so you better be prepared to save yourself. You will be ready for you might. Do you know which might might come your you might. Might might get because he can't hit you like he wants to. It can live to be one hundred percent really I really preferred no hit you. because. It makes it easier for them. Because it's my head, a bigger target out, prefer no headgear, but it's an exhibition, so you've gotTA. Follow the rules. Roy Great to talk to you. Miss you. Miss Working with your brother. Best of luck on September. Twelfth Charlie they met. I right Maxie on both sides of this fight covered now after that latest interview with Roy Jones, Junior. Okay. We have more breaking news out of the Patriots Organization this morning. Patriots Safety Patrick Chung telling ESPN's Mike. Reiss that he is opting out for the twenty twenty season similar to dont`a hightower. Chung announced this week that his family also is expecting a new baby. So this becomes the second member of the PATS defense to opt out after linebacker linebacker hightower opted out earlier this morning making it six players total in the Patriots, or who will not play this season deiter loss joining the crew now and then look six players now there could be more. What does this mean for Bill Belichick and the Patriots now? First of all this is just an example of how some players are going to handle this season. There are going to be guys that do not feel comfortable and I. Give Credit for those guys for making that decision for the Patriots when it comes to a football aspect listen. This was a worse football team this year at up until this point then last season that defense. That was top. Top two in the NFL last year missed four starters already, and now they've got two more starters out, and so this is a team that this is going to be bill belichick greatest challenge just going into this year with all the losses that they've had in the transition of a new offense with potentially Cam Newton coming in no Tom Brady, this is going to be his greatest challenge. Challenge it's only gotten more more difficult because Patrick Chung is the type of player that really changes the way New England plays defense. He's the type of player that you can play him at the safety position you can him. You can have them in run support. You can put them down at a linebacker level allows them to do a lot of different things, which is obviously a trademark of. Of What New England likes to do and a big deal of their secondary, those those corners and safeties communication, they do a lot of different stuff and to have a guy like Patrick Chung who has all those wrecks built up and talking to guys and communicating. That's a big deal for that loss. This is going to be a massive undertaking bill belichick. You'll probably have to lean on. They drafted a kid named Kyle Duggar in the second round with their first. Pick this yard of a small school. He's going to have to play earlier now. So this is a this is an example of how.

Who Society say overhead over age washed up? They have a bigger fan based in guys fighting and playing now. All right. You heard this fight. I right here on I take the last going down September twelfth between these two studs right here and now we are going to be welcoming in. Roy Jones. Roy By way of introduction. Let me just tell the people out there that the kids who might not know. Floyd Mayweather kids you heard him. He was the best pound for pound of the world for so long, and by a lot many years, floyd was in his prime when Roy was in his prime, not a single person on earth didn't acknowledge that Roy was the number one pound for pound fighter in the world by a lot back then he's the Best I've seen in my lifetime when he was at his best and my pleasure work with you on HBO for all those years the great. Roy Jones Junior Roy. Thanks for joining the show. Thank you make sense, I don a and work with you as well. I'll know that I could another team as good as a country's. Yourself and Jim Lepe don't get any better than not in boxing. CA. As Frankie Potentially said in the Godfather. What was it part to? Those were the great old days. Those were the grill. For? Sure Roy once upon a time. You moved up to heavyweight. You'd never come close to losing a fight. You got robbed in the Olympics the worst robbery. I've ever seen your knocked out. mantell Griffin they. You because he was already on knee when you hit him, those were the only blemishes on your record and your moved up to heavyweight middleweight, super middleweight light, heavyweight winning belts all the way jump cruiserweight went up to heavyweight beat John. Ruiz easily for a belt, and after that fight, you opened as a two-to-one favorite to beat Mike Tyson, but that was many years ago. You're fifty one. He's fifty four. Who should be the favorite on September twelfth. I don't know it's hard to say Noah boxing boxing is a sport. A lot of times people always say that you live the first thing to go and my legs were. A key part of my my my style mosquito level the power of asking to go, and he's Powell, was the key element of his skill set so his skills alisdair. Their muscular legs was up. There used to be so I wouldn't be mad. They said he was a favorite, but I wouldn't agree with it. Roy when I think about exhibitions, it's an eight round exhibition tag here, but to sell this. There has to be a level of real competition. I think about someone like Mohammed Ali or you? If you guys were saying Hey, I'm fighting exhibition I could see you guys Bolo punching showboating. Shut doing the Ali Shuffle or Roy Jones signature move and having a good time in an exhibition I don't see how Mike can fight that way. Mike fights one speed full speed ahead. What do you like? How is that an exhibition? What's going to happen you? Listen. I don't know at all, but for me. I. Know How to have fun to Reagan. Try to make it the best. That I can make but same time you know Mike might unknown. Pit. Bull pup he played for. He'll get lost because Ali noses Greta. You know what I mean so. That's all Mike No gweat it so I got A. Pair, for whatever might come out with now I WANNA box and have a good time giving people. A good show will, but Mike Ordinary. You know he's not. He's not that person they can do that all he knows his. Take Your Hill and when he comes. He wrote. Back to who yield especially if you have a touch, good or A. Combination that He. then. He immediately become. Obsolete bipolar. Probably about. I mean he goes swift switch at some point and you're GonNa have to with Mike Tyson notice, so get myself prepared to deal. Mike Tyson rows. But Roy do. You at your at your best, you could play with guys. Lay on the ropes. I was there for so many. Whoever it was guys who had great Chins who you would drop was shots. They didn't see and you could pick off every single shot. Do whatever you wanted, but as you got older, the ropes became very dangerous for you as we all older fighters. So if Mike starts to turn this into kind of a real competition where he's going at you, Mike Tyson style. How do you counteract that? You're going to have to put something hard on them to gain his respect. Are you going to go to the ropes or you're going to try to move on your fifty plus year old legs? What do you do? You gotTA scout a rope, and you under be staying a little bit. Mean Abe's. Lewis is Donna chance got no. He got the MRS come. Let you gotTA. Let them be sting can be staying and got to back off me. If you don't then you gotta do. Alcohol the cruiserweight champion once upon a time told me before he moved up to heavyweight to fight. We use and I thought.

"Those kind of numbers that doesn't mean those three were better than Jordan and Alon and shack mode. They warrant, but they're comparable in every era. So when you talk about counting numbers Yes Lebron James like Westbrook did it's not that they're not super great. If that that those numbers don't tell the whole story, that's number. One number two nights denies becomes like a religious. To still makes any again. All the uses stuff, but they still have the. They stood as a player. You still have to put in that work. UK discredit these. Let's talk about the have to go out there and perform. They Move Lebron. Geron great performance, an extremely high level. Let's talk about that. Lebron is great, super great, one of the greatest ever including this season. No doubt about it. There's never been a team in the history of basketball with two top five players. It's not a powerhouse I'm not diminishing what he's doing. He is a great point guard. He's the best point guard basketball and if he played the four be. Be The best four. You know like wherever he played. He be the second best player in that position in the sport, but you put any to top five players on the same team from any era. They're going to be great. So Lebron is getting a little too much credit for that with the Lakers now and finally we could can either do this. According to religion or science religion people including you perk worship at the altar of Lebron James. Is You have an undisputable hypothesis in other words you believe something and no amount of evidence is going to convince you otherwise a scientist. You take the evidence and you adapt as you see it. What are you going to say if and when co? Why is the finals MVP again this year? My prediction is you're gonNA. Come up with excuses for Lebron. Well, that's because he had Patrick Beverley or this one or that one playing defense and Blah Blah everything except just acknowledging what we just saw. megs. Max Max. You're wrong. Because last year I was I was I was one of the first people. Mitch Awhile Limit About. Kawara Jordan. And I got killed about it, and then he went on one of the greatest playoff runs in the history of the NBA. So you're rogue about that I never so don't act like I'm. Kowa, but when I'm telling you right now, the question is is there. Who's the best basketball player in the world? And my opinion and I'm standing by? It is Lebron James. Now you sit up. Against some these layoffs either the broad. What to main. Well they played three times this year so far the too high profile National Games opening day and Christmas. Kawai did his thing. He was the best player on the floor. Clearly better than Lebron Lebron played chemo wave from coli. Beat them the third time. That's two-to-one Kawai. Let's say the clippers go out and beat. The Lakers and Kawhi has a better series and the clippers win and go on to win the championship. What would you say then? My prediction is you come up with excuses for Lebron. I won't make excuses for the brunt if that that's. What would you? Won't make excuses for? Really won't because here's the deal. Guys like Lebron. We always appreciate them when they're no longer around. It's the same thing with Michael Jordan. People appreciated Michael Jordan for the ATHOL defect fact and didn't realize his greatness. That's why look at Lebron James Still being the best player in the world because I think so many people, not you Max, but so many people have Lebron James Fatigue. Because he's been this great his entire career, he was great. Great the mini, he stepped on a basketball court and people knew he was going to be great. Nobody saw this from from Lebron James. Nobody saw this so at a certain point we we get seduced by the fact that we know he's going to be great and we WANNA see. Other people do something else and when they do that. We inflate them a little bit like I said Max, not you. Know the people that do that. steph curry has to MVP one. He definitely deserves but then the other ones but Bron. James had a better season. Steph Curry, but I wasn't mad at people. Giving steph curry the MVP because of the fact that there was Lebron James Fatigue so I still think a lot of Lebron to keep waiting at a certain point win. Is he going to slow down? The guy continues to show that more than ever before he's the best athletes who have played in the NBA and still doing that at this level. The way he plays is tremendous is been able to do that. He's still the best league in my blood for for. First of all joy of all the heights Jordan reached higher than the heights. That Lebron reached perk. I hate to break it to you, but I will say this for Lebron. No player in the history of the NBA has ever maintain this for this long like top three all time at his peak, and he's done it now way deeper into his career. Even than Kareem did as a pro. Of course, he didn't have the Ford at the college experiences the Korean. But he's doing it like that, but that's the proper comparison. Lebron in terms of that stuff is Kareem the heights plus the longevity Mo, and that's amazing, but he's not getting extra credit from me. Guys like there were regular seasons where. Someone else had a better regular season than Lebron not better overall because you have to include the playoffs. What I'm saying about is coup. Why just showed near MVP regular season all time great in the playoffs? Lebron's gotTA show. He can still do that those playoffs that he can be better than that in the playoffs.

"My. The for more coverage isn't state farm dot. COM! Every day we. We've done better excited for LAKER nation. The switch what fast my jake. Spring Creek twits back. Everyone seeing this coming. The Lakers have two of the top five players in the league. They complement each other well. They do all the heavy lifting. Just amaze that they talk about anybody other than him. Jane. Tainted. Lebron is the most impactful player on the four makes guys around him. Better deed. Dynamite relief is not. Lakers now, winner. J! The finishing touches we know who we are. We stack up against the best. Are Nba bubble where nothing segment comes to an end today with a look at all the king's men in Los Angeles the Lakers were top dogs in the West when the season was suspended with a comfortable five and a half game lead over their rival lipper. The dynamic duo of Lebron ad has certainly lived up to the hype Lebron, having an MVP level season in the brow is one of the favorites to win defensive player of the year. Part. Let's welcome back perk for this discussion for the sake of this discussion. Let's really focusing on Lbj so max is Lebron James still the best player in the world. Though. He's not. He's not the best player in the world, and his title was taken. It's true because he was hurt, he didn't have a chance to defend it, but the answer right now is Kawhi Leonard when it matters most. Let's see how everyone plays now Lebron. Great Credit. He got wiser as he got older. Instead of the Best Lebron James Ever was on the heat when he turned into an all world defender, and his offense was as great as ever write like that was the best Lebron the as he aged, he realized. He cannot put that much effort into both ends of the floor. All season plus the playoffs going to be making finals runs every and he was right. He was smart. He took his foot off the gas in the regular season, especially on the defensive end, except for high leverage moments so that he could do his thing in the playoffs, and Lebron became one of the all time great season performance performance in the history of American team sports. Right like he really elevated in the playoffs and he always had that to show us. US, I'm still the best or wait a minute. Look at Steph, he's now the best player one MVP, and deserved it. Playoffs came Lebron showed. He's look at K. D., and he's a two way winglike. Lebron playoffs came around even when Katie was winning the championship, Lebron still left no doubt. especially in that first that first series against the warriors that he was still the best player in the world, but guess what happened. He got hurt and he got hurt during a year and at an age where once again there were other. Other players the Greek freak during the regular season who showed that they were better than the Ron in the regular season, but Lebron would have the playoffs to prove his point right. No, he didn't have that. And in his absence, someone emerged a guy already one of finals MVP guy who proved himself in the biggest moments in the crucible of the playoffs against the likes of the Greek Freak in the East, Simmons, and Embiid in the east and then of course it was a hobbled warriors team, but Lebron going to do anything. Anything against that warriors team. If there were full strength anyway, Kawais showed from wire to wire in the playoffs when it mattered most that he elevated to Lebron James Levels. When it mattered most, we won his second finals MVP award. It is now on Lebron to go get it back. Go Take it from coli. It's probably going to be the Lakers and the clippers. Go get it. Braun I predict he won't and right now at any rate, the crown rests on the head of the reigning and defending finals MVP, Kawhi Leonard. Though nope. Nope no, the is still the best player in the World I. Get what you're saying about. What he was able to this, no doubt you shouldn't even begin to take that away from him, but Lebron still impacts of Game Max better than collide lunar. Even though he was not in the playoffs last year, I'm not going to go against the guy that is averaging Tennessee per game was making the play League in assists. He's still impacts. The game is so many different ways more than anybody else and I'm a fan. I load. He's been able to do the Milwaukee Bucks and Kawhi Leonard Yet. He loves having that ability to do. Do that ESPEC- makers way on defense against getting better better offensively, but you got a guy. Lebron, James Continues to elevate his game. I continued to elevate his teammates. Game Kawai may have that championship bill because his team the last team to win the championship, but he is still the best player in the world meeting number. Twenty three in the form, blue and gold plant Los Angeles. Lakers whatever they need him to do this year. He's done it playing into post. Knocking down threes better than people could have anticipated running that basketball team. That basketball team. He does so many different things as a Swiss army knife and be in charge of everything in making that work. Coalisland is great, no doubt about that, but the dude in the same city as Lebron, James and that dude, only best player in Los Angeles that Lebron James the best player in the world. makes. You have to staw sitting down and actually watching the games like you do in box. You really great it that you know when you know when to say hey, guys shoulda jabbed here and he should've do uppercut. It this. You have to start watching the game Max 'cause Lebron James is the best basketball player on. And he's been over the past thirteen years. He's been over the past thirteen years and he's still today. We Not GonNa live in the past and say oh, because he was injured that he got dethrone. No, we're GONNA talk about this season this season. He's the best basketball player in the world. When you look at the impact that he has on the court guests since you're a numbers Guy, he averaged twenty six points in almost eleven assists and eight rebounds I get there, but let's let's not take for granted what he brings to the table when he's on the court, the little things do right being deployed general. Making sure he put guys in position to be successful putting guys in the right. Making the easy on guys for the Office of defensively if you was Lebron James, he's the best communicator in the game today on the defensive end. Even when he's not involved in the play, he's on the weak side. Telling guys would rotate. Hey, the place coming to you. Hey, it's coming your way getting ready to white about the post you up when you have that type of guy that type of leadership that type of greatness director you not only doing your job, but helping others do their job. Job and make sure that they're able to do their roles while they're on the court. That is greatness. That is the best player in the world. No discredit took a while because I love Kuwa- I think he's the second best player in the world today with Kevin Durant ben hurt, but when we talk about the things that Lebron James Bring to the table, and if you've been watching these scrimmages doing this doing this time, he's been on the mission. He's been directing them. He's been now who? Scripts each Winston bleat like say before he's doing everything. Okay make wise for the. Finals. Guys? Listen first of all counting numbers I'm so sick of. Rebounds assists that is that is any great player who's very high usage in an era or a system like that will rack up a lot of numbers. Guys Wilt Chamberlain averaged fifty point sixty, one, sixty, nine, hundred, sixty, one, sixty two season that same season. Elgin Baylor averaged thirty seven and Oscar Robertson had thirty point triple double on the season. That's because that year. The environment was. was conducive to.

"Kind of numbers that doesn't mean those three were better than Jordan and Alon Shack. They warrant, but but they're comparable in every era so when you talk about counting numbers yes. Lebron James like Westbrook did. It's not that they're not super great. It's that that those numbers don't tell you the whole story. That's number one number two. This becomes a religious. have. Yeah Mike to still makes any again all the uses stuff, but they still have to they still as a player. You still have to put in that work. You can't discredit these. Let's talk about. Before they move Lebron. Let's talk about that were grown is great with. Extremely high level. Let's talk about that. Lebron is great, super great, one of the greatest ever including this season. No doubt about it. There's never been a team in the history of basketball with two top five players. That's not a powerhouse I'm not diminishing what he's doing. He is a great point guard. He's the best point guard in basketball. And if he played the four, it'd be. Be The best four and you know like wherever he played. Be The best or second best player in that position in the sport, but you put any to top five players on the same team from any era. They're going to be great. So Lebron is getting a little too much credit for that with the Lakers. Now and finally we could either do this. According to religion or science religion could people including you perk worship at the altar of Lebron? James. Is You have an undisputable hypothesis? In other words, you believe something and no amount of evidence is going to convince you otherwise a scientist. You take the evidence and you adapt as you see it. What are you going to say if and win? Is the finals MVP again this year my prediction is you're gonNA. Come up with excuses for Lebron well. That's because he had Patrick Beverley or this one or that one playing defense and Blah. Blah everything except just acknowledging what we just saw. Max. Max Max your role because last two, I was I was the one of the first people. Mitchell limit about bit Kawhi Leonard Jordan and I got killed about it, and then he went on. One of the greatest playoff runs in the history of the NBA. So you're wrong about that I never so don't act like I'm making. But when I'm telling you right now, the question is is there. Who's the best basketball player in the world and my opinion and I'm standing. Bud Is Lebron James now. You sit up. Co, get some these. Seat the broad say. What's the main? Well. They played three times this year so far the too high profile National Games opening day and Christmas. Did his thing. He was the best player on the floor. Clearly better than Lebron Lebron played. Keep away from coli. Beat them the third time. That's two one Kawai. Let's say the clippers go out and beat the Lakers and Kawhi has better series and the clippers win and go on to win the championship. What would you say then? My prediction is you come up with excuses. Four Lebron, no, I won't make excuses for the brunt if What would use? I mean I won't make excuses for that I really want. Because here's the deal. Guys like Lebron. We always appreciate them when they're no longer around. It's the same thing with Michael. Jordan people appreciated Michael. Jordan further after the fact and didn't realize his greatness. That's why look Lebron James Still. Being the best player in the world because I think so many people, not you Max, but so many people have Lebron James Fatigue because he's been this great. Great his entire career. He was great the mini he stepped on a basketball court and people knew he going to be great. Nobody saw this from from the Bronx. Nobody saw this so at a certain point. We get seduced by the fact that we know he's going to be great and we WANNA. See other people do something and when they do that we. We may inflate them a little bit like I said Max. Not You, but their point of the people that do that Steph. Curry has to MVP one. He definitely deserved, but then the other one but Bron James had a better season. Steph Curry, but I wasn't mad at people giving Steph curry the MVP because of the fact that there was Lebron. James, Fatigue. Fatigue so I still think a lot of Lebron. Keep waiting at a certain point. When is he going to slow down? The guy continues to show that more than ever before he's the best athletes who have ever laid in the NBA and still doing that at this level, the way he plays is tremendous is able to. He's still the best league my for. First of all joy. Heights of the Jordan reached were higher than the heights. That Lebron reached perk. I hate to break it to you, but I will say this for Lebron, not player in the history of the NBA has ever maintained this for this long like he is top three all time at his peak, and he's done it now way deeper into his career, even than Kareem as a pro. Of course, he didn't have the Ford that. The college experiences career day, but he's doing it like that, but that's the proper comparison for Lebron. In terms of that stuff is Kareem, the heights plus the longevity. And that's amazing, but he's not getting extra credit from me. Guys like there were regular seasons where Katie or ask for someone else had a better regular season. Then Lebron not better overall because you have to include the playoffs what I'm saying about? Is Coup. Why just showed near MVP regular season all time great in the play offs. The bronze gotTA show he can still do that and those playoffs can be better than that in the playoffs. We don't have evidence. In the last years twenty years back. We got fresh evidence from coli so Max. If the Lakers do go onto. You. Lebron James is the greatest player in the world. And the best player in the world know. Brian Jana. Leo's do. Do Charlie. No, no, he's not. You know what he's going to do. All he goes, say Oh, he's supposed to do that. He was playing with Anthony Davis, a play ready to see what you're doing because you're GonNa mail what. Lebron James goes out and be not right. What excuses excuses are you gonNA know what is. GOING GONNA come up with when. Why Loses to Lebron James in? Los Angeles School. Let me tell you. What is? Changed the same the same thing I thought when I thought the game had changed to the point where Steph was now the best at the end of that finals and I was there for that game seven at Oracle. I came out the next day on sports nation at the time where the next time we were on and said sorry Lebron I was wrong. You're the best. I was wrong this whole time. I will see the exact same thing if he takes the crown that from. What we do have to debate therefore. You get ready to see. You to get ready to give it up for. Look. The debate has to come to an end for today, but I have a feeling. It is not over for good. I think we can all agree that much. Policy from state farm gets you collision coverage and this radio ADS.

It was revealed today that Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Junior are going to be having an exhibition about in a few months for charity. What are your thoughts on seeing them back in the ring? Well, if by charity we mean Mike Tyson's bank account, and Roy Jones, his bank account, don't don't get fooled by. These guys aren't going out there to be nice. I love that fight. I can't believe he stepping in there with Roy. That's a hard night out. Let's see what happens. But I know that Mike is getting very good training. He's with guiding happy all. Cordero, who came over from Brazil did such a great job even was nominated Coach of the year in the M M a space But he's a hand coach and sort of everything else. He's striking Coach Mike Very good hands and whatever the promoter is, I mean shame on him. Shame. Shame one. Whoever the promoter is trying to come out of pretended for charity. This is for profit. Say what it is. There's no problem that will be a liar. Also you well, I'm going to talk to Roy Jones. Junior in a couple of days. You should I relay the message? I mean, come on Share. What do you want? Sure. I know Roy. Roy is not going to lie about it. This is for profit. You're not getting in there with Mike Tyson. I work with either There was some money on the line. So active. So what's were cherry? That woman? What a joke. I'm just supported that, you know, and all truth. I mean, they're pretending this is for charity. Shame on them. It's not Mike Tyson was very upfront. He says the 1st 1 to the table with a $1,000,000. Get me to sign a contract. Somebody came with a $1,000,000. You signed the contract. Pretend it's for charity. What, Sam? That's that's disgusting.
'The Last Dance:' Debate over Michael Jordan's trash talking on 1997-98 Chicago Bulls
"More discussion this morning. Of course about the last dance the legacy of Michael Jordan and his Chicago Bulls teams of the nineteen nineties and whether or not the way Jordan governed that group demanded of them held them accountable. Some might say bullied them was fair. Michael Wilbon who covered Jordan Bulls and knows Jordan about as well as anyone in the media. This side of a moderate shod. Join Max Steven A. And discussed the question was Michael Jordan. Too tough on his teammates. What were your thoughts when you heard. What Charles Barkley had to say about Michael Jordan In regards to his treatment of his teammates. Well look everybody's gotTa take on. Michael and how? Ruffy was teammates. Select Selective Prosecution. Was the words he used select. Prosecution said look everybody had a different leadership style. Reason part of the reason for this documentary reasoning exists is because Michael decided okay. I'm going to be able to sort of control the conversation in terms of why I did what I did and how I did it. I it comes out and says hey you know you've had this conversation with them. He wasn't trying to adopt anybody else's leadership style. He was going to do this his way. And when it worked then you had to. You heard him during. I thought the most effective part of the last dance department made me reach for a notebook and put my reporter hat back on his when Michael Said you know. Winning has a price. And if you don't want to buy into the mentality. I am using here. Get out it's GONNA be. It's GonNa be hell for you. I think was the phrase. And so you see all those teams that you see will produc- Winnington and those guys say at the time that we did it. Seem like he crossed the line. Yes as went on. Did we think he was a great teammate? Yes this is not look you can have whatever take you. WanNa have on it and I understand Charleston's take because it was different but nobody else in their time as much I mean magic and Kareem on the way in but it worked and so I even sit. There does interesting mom watching in real time I have not. I did not watch all the episodes of advanced like most people in our business. I wanted to watch in real time with my son. Who's a twelve year old basketball player and his eyes so big? When Michael says certain things to his teammates we are watching the unedited version The watch the PG rated version of the DEUCE and he's like. Wow Dad he has to do that with his teammates. And I'm like I don't know if he had to but it worked they won and that's the bottom line right. There is the quote that tells you at all they won in Jordan's way worked. Max made a great point during the you know there was no Celtics Lakers rivalry. There wasn't because Jordan he was Roy Jones. He was so good. There were no equals. No rivals
The unsinkable Tyson Fury took America for a night. Can he keep it?
"Tyson. Very deontay wilder both had unique entrances to the ring on Saturday night but the advantage at once the bell rang was all furious. Wilder was knocked down twice once in the third and once in the fifth round while there was able to extend the fight to the seventh round but fury was too much. Wilders corner threw in the towel giving fury the win by Technical Knockout Fox sports analysts and huge boxing Fan Christopher starred with us. Now good to have you on this one. How surprised were you by the outcome will pick wild during the tenth round? Tko So obviously. I thought he'd win. I was surprised he lost. I would not have been surprised. If fury had one in a decision it was a close fifty fifty. A lot of people are saying. It's a fifty fifty fight. I wouldn't have been surprised at off. He just outboxed him for trail round right but for him to march forward the way he did and knock him out. That's the problem. He was saying he was GONNA do it. You know in the premiums fight and I thought he was just talking noise right right and I thought he may be trying to throw wilder off. But here's something I have said since. Wilders become champion and been this prominent fighter and this is why despite his all time high knockout percentage despite his record no one really has ever put him in the class of Tyson Ali. Form and frazier any rocky Marciano. Any of the really great heavyweights. Because the fact is he can't box. He cannot box he has this. That's you his fight against Louis Ortiz. Recently he was getting shut out every round he knocked him out. May One St Right. And so what? What fury did there were so great when he took the fight to wilder and he had wilder backing up like around one. I was watching a fight with some guys. And we're like the body language or walters. Now he's backing up all of a sudden he's never nobody knew that right and he lunges with throws the right he steps for with his left and then lunges. You can't do that if you're backing up. And he wants. He took a fury. Took that away from him. He had no answer no he doesn't jive with a as a weapon. He does it to measure so I get the right right. He can't dance. I was even saying it may be equilibrium. Was just off but once after the third round. He looked out on his feet. I was saying run. Just move until you can get your wits about you or whole you wits about you. And he didn't even know how to do that. Look he showed a lot of heart. He showed tremendous heart because a punch drunk for the last four. But and I'll say this finally. I hope I'm wrong. I don't think he can bounce back. I don't think I think the best chance. He has the balance about that. Furio bounce back thinking fury. I think his best chance of bouncing back is to fight Joshua and maybe beat him but here you know you're the bully and then you get bullied and we've seen it. George Forman it's a religious conversion and fifteen. Here's a preaching to become when he became when he was a whole different person that one Tyson was never quite the same age. Because you're not the same in your own mind nor do you have that intimidation opponents and Roy Jones. Junior wasn't a bully but he was dominant you. Once he got beat he was never this guy. I just mentally. It's GonNa be so hard for him to bounce back I again. I don't think he could be fury. I definitely don't think it'd be fury but I have trouble in general so going back in history. This is what me very late on Saturday night. I picked wilder in a second round knockout because I thought after Tyson fury had all week predicted. I'm going to knock him out in the second round that he would get a little careless and be vulnerable to the one punch. That deontay did have in that. That Punch you could argue is about as lethal as any punch. We've seen in the history of boxing. I don't know if I've ever seen him more savage right than that one in all it takes is one. Is You know and that? Big trees going to topple. But you have to catch him flush and he wasn't able to catch him with it so we're my head. Went back to a fight. That I wrote about was that I watched. I didn't go to just watched it here. That was the rumble in the jungle. I haven't been more shocked by the strategy and the unfolding of a fight than than I have since I sat watching Ali something that I thought was impossible to the beast. Who Was George Foreman and remember in those days George? Foreman weighed two hundred and fifty pounds. He didn't wait to seventy three. And I thought that was beyond massive and Ali Wade to twenty for that fight so he was given up thirty pounds but he wound but he games he had gained. Wait to find out by hand by. I totally agree but I did not see rope adult coming. Because I don't think he's corner. Saw Rope it upcoming. He didn't tell anybody and he goes and lays against the ropes and let he had worked on his core all through his camp and he just put his gloves on and he just said is that all you got champ. Is that all you got and you just kept trying to chop wood until he just chopped himself down
