Roy, big UK fan here.
My question is this, and I hope it doesn't come across as shitty, I don't intend it to be that way.
Why are you continuing to fight at this point? Are you not worried you may tarnish your legacy? Enzo Maccarinelli wouldn't have been fit to face you at any stage until recently, he wouldn't have lasted a round in your prime. You are a successful rapper, a record holder and in your prime an absolute all time fighter, AND a successful commentator.
Why do you carry on fighting at this point? Is it pride, or search of a cruiserweight title? Would like to know.
Not worried at all. Can't undo what's already been done!
How often did you have to remind Kellerman and Lampley that they've never boxed?
Not too often
Why are you ducking me, Roy?
I don't duck anyone.
do you think success is more determined by hard work, or natural talent?
Do you believe most people can be great at anything if they truly dedicate themselves to their craft?
It's about defining your craft. Once you define your craft, you have to find God and he will take you to the top of where you need to go.
You got any excuses tonight, Roy?
No! Never have, never will
If you were an up and coming fighter today would you pick boxing or MMA?
I still would pick boxing
what is your dream fight? (can be current or past boxer)
To box Anderson Silva
Hi Roy, I've been a huge fan of yours since I was little kid and I've always wondered, after having such an amazing career and being considered one of the all time greats, what do you think was your greatest achievement in this sport? Thank you.
Winning the heavyweight title and Thank you.
How does someone get involved in mainstream boxing promotion?
Very terrible to get into and it takes a lot of money to get into it.
Hey Roy, it's been a big fantasy match of mine to see you training Vasyl Lomachenko! Would you be open to training him and what benefits do you see yourself giving him by being in his corner?
Of course I would be interested in training him. It would be beneficial for me and the viewers because I would be entertaining the crowd.
Hey Roy! I've met you a couple of times at the dog track back home a long time ago! Nice to see you on reddit! Do you still have the body head painted whip? haha
No, I don't have it anymore
Is there any boxer from the past you wish you had the opportunity to fight?
Sugar Ray Robinson
Fellow Pensacolian here! I went to Brown Barge Middle School (I’m 30) and one of our custodians had a pair of your gloves hanging from his cart. I don’t quite remember but I think he grew up with you?
Will you ever run for mayor here?
What’s your favorite spot to eat in Pcola?
I don't know if I will ever run for mayor. But there are several places I like to eat in Pensacola, but my favorite place is at home.
Who do you think has the best future in boxing?
Right now, I would say Devin Haney
What are some interesting things that go on behind the scenes at some of the fights that you get to see as a commentator that others rarely get to see?
Also, how/when did you know that "he not getting up, Jim"?
Interesting things behind the scenes is mostly in the fighter meetings during the conversations. You mostly know if a fighter is getting up by the way they go down.
if you couldn't be an athlete, what would you want to be?
If I couldn't be an athlete, i would be an actor or comedian.
Does Russ Anber cheat at pool?
No he doesn't
What's your thought on HBO's Boxing lack of quality matches so far this year? Also what's your perspective on PBC and will you ever work as a commentator for PBC if you were offered the opportunity?
If PBC offered and I wasn't under contract I would consider it. But I think HBO has a good selection of fighters on their network
Sup Roy you're a beast. Let's box. How's life? What boxer are you most impressed with all time and right now Besides yourself?
Hi Roy big fan, I used to watch this video before my high school football games.
Who is the toughest guy you ever fought? Who hit the hardest?
On another note I give you one free shot. Where do you hit me to cause the most damage?
Merqui Sosa hit the hardest. Toughest fight James Toney. Ha ha, hit in the neck
Hello, if you could go back to any moment in your boxing career, what moment would you want to go back to?
The night I beat John Ruiz
Hey Roy, in your opinion, who will be the face of boxing in the next few years?
I think Terrence Crawford
Hey Roy, a fight that never happened was Bernard Hopkins vs James Toney. Who do you think would've won? Also, I love that HBO has you call fights, interesting to hear what you're able to see that Jim and Max don't see.
In their prime, James would have won. Later Bernard would have won
