Going 10 Rounds – Round Eight

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Just when you thought boxing had become irrelevant…

The news release proclaims that “former heavyweight champions Roy Jones Jr. and Mike Tyson” will join Monty Meza-Clay in headlining a post-fight after-party and VIP reception at DejaVu Lounge in the Strip District.

Don’t know which is more comical, that it was distributed by the PR director of the Pittsburgh Xplosion – which can’t draw anyone to its own games – or that Roy Jones Jr. and Mike Tyson supposedly are coming to town.

It’s a shame that boxing has to reduce a pair of fighters recognized among the greatest in boxing history by espn.com to sideshow acts.
