I'm assuming this happened recently? That's sad.
He was something in his earlier years but it's time to hang up the gloves before he gets hurt.

Yeah last night I believe. He is a Russian citizen now so he was fighting over there.

When the feds seized the majority of his properties due to unpaid taxes, guess it was time to say deuces to the good ole USofA...

Great athlete, but a classic example of what happens when you "ball out" after hitting it big...

Did not know any of this ...... just watched the fight = mouth drop for both of us and thanks for broadening my vocabulary ...Ball Out =Urban Dictionary:TOP DEFINITION
To spend a lot of cash, especially at a strip club.
Yo, homes, I got five hundred dollars in ones. Damn, it's time to ball out!

Like Emmit??? I still can't stand 1 particular horror story that came out about him and his arrogance (telling a kid he wouldn't give an autograph unless he paid $$$)! Not to mention, I don't think I have ever heard of much in the way of helping the community that raised him except fer maybe donating a few sporting good items to the place he played pee-wee ball....Now maybe our other local sports stars from golf/football/baseball.....

Just sad all the millions these guys make and then end up poor due to not knowing how to handle $$$

Roy's a good man. Good heart. Like so many sports stars he surrounded himself with hangers-on that sucked him dry. He also threw money away trying to help his home town by investing in doomed to fail ventures. Nonetheless he has done good for Pensacola.

He was a great boxer too, right up until he developed a glass chin. Kind of reminds me of Chuck Liddel (The Ice Man), of the UFC. Dominating, and then one fight, out of nowhere he couldn't take a punch.

Hopefully Roy has some money squirreled away so he can retire now.

I don't know much about Roy's giving back...I have heard that Reggie Evans and Derrick Brooks have done a lot of good...

What I do know is if Roy keeps climbing in the ring with big Russian fighters he's gonna end up not remembering his own name.
