Tarver’s got Roy’s number

The late great Archie Moore referred to opponents that he just couldn’t figure out as a “cousin.” A cousin is someone who has your number despite the fact that he may or may not prove as convincing against mutual opponents. For Moore, that man was Ezzard Charles. Despite meeting him on numerous occasions in the ring, Moore could never get past Charles – even though he would later achieve greatness and hold the light-heavyweight title for 10 years. Antonio Tarver has seemingly mastered the puzzle of Roy Jones. Tarver will once again take his deliberate southpaw approach and befuddle Jones. Roy Jones has proven his greatness over an extended period but he has met the one man that he just can’t figure out. Tarver by KO in 10.

While I realize the high chance of a Tarver victory, I can't help but root for Jones. He's been very quiet and very serious leading up to this fight. We may see a Jones blowout by UD. Jones UD.

btw: I had the change my URL - can you update it in your blog links to http://boxing.logicalaudio.net

Thanks
