Default Steve Collins R U 4 real

Steve Collins is trying to come back after 15 years out of the ring to fight a boxer he wouldn't have touched in his prime.
Roy jones is still an active boxer although not as good as he used to be but can Collins seriously think he can beat Roy jones.
I think he's dreaming anyone interested in seeing this fight happen

I would have loved to have seen it 15 years ago alrite, but not now. Collins was not to be taken lightly in his prime, he beat to men no one else could, Benn and Eubanks, twice

Don't think he should come back and fight.he is 48 years old and out of the game a long time.it dident work for Ricky hatton and he was only out for a few years.granted he dident look after himself when he was out of the ring.collins has a great rep as as fighter but don't see why you would ruin it by doing this.money mabey.will he even get a licence to box after being out for this long.the last time i saw him on ringside he dident look like he was in great shape. but I hope he changes his mind and backs out of it.

I heard he did the ike turner thing alright but Celtic warrior or not I think he's out of order saying jones was afraid of him.
I seriously doubt jones is afraid of chuck Norris let alone Collins.

Seen him on the Sat night show and he looks every bit of his age where as the pic they put up of Jones jr he still looks like a fighting machine i really hope for Collins sake this debacle does not go ahead he must really need the cash to even consider it.

Would love to see him get the head boxed off him! He was always a brawler, despite the scalps he claimed, I never thought he had an ounce of style.

Only fought them when they were shadows of their former selves IMO, mainly due to the McClellan and Watson fights. Jones Jr would have destroyed him back then and probably still will now

Ya I think its madness too. He was a tough b&stard in his time and was never stopped but not in Jones Jr. league at all. He was one of the best. He probably will manage to get a license some way, after all Freddie Flintoff got one!
