Roy Jones Jr.
"first of all, Butkiss ain't no champ!!!!! He was STRIPPED for not defending his title all those weeks and then moving up! I picked up the title when I KOed Glass Jaw Tunney!!!! I said Tunney was getting KO'd, I said Blatty was getting KO'd.....now BUTKISS MUST GO BEFO' 10!!!!!!!!"

This fight is bullshit. I'd be shocked if Roy wins. Either way, I would love a shot at the winner.
BTW, I might have to retire the Prince after the terrible loss to soup bone. Congrats C.E.O, you just Roy Jonesed my boy.
Jan 14 2008, 04:24 PM
Thanks, Hata...Abu-Husson is a bad, bad dude...he can beat anyone around his weight on any given night....apparently just like Soup Bone can now...lol
as far as the Butkiss-Jones fight....Jones appears to be the more beatable of the two....so I have to lean towards Butkiss.......
and for the record...Blatty, Boome, and Sloan could all beat Butkiss and/or Jones with the right plans....

QUOTE(Richard "Dick" Butkiss - Linear Light Heavyweight Champion Of The World)
*holding up 2 light heavyweight championship belts* You see this right here Roy? These are the real light heavyweight titles. I still have physical possession of the belts, you know why? Because I never lost the Undisputed Titles in the ring! That belt you carrying around is a plastic toy, cracker jack, worth $10. Come this sunday, after I knock your ass out and take your cracker jack toy you call a belt, I will drive down to your home in pensacola, find the nearest bridge and toss that piece of shit title right into the river! You're dead!

Its a shame that even Al Hata doesn't have faith in Roy. Hata, you built him...you know what he is capable of doing.
Butkiss is FUCKED!
Jan 16 2008, 01:10 PM
I must say Im still not too sure if Butkiss is really the real deal. He looked great against Ghusson, but someone like Roy is a totally different fighter. And I dont think Butkiss could win more than 3 out of 10 against Deep Freeze, so I dont know about his resume. Hes a great fighter, but is he really a p4p number 1 candidate? Maybe Jones will prove hes not, its a good fight.
By the way: Wednesday, Januar 16th - Super Welterweight Championship of the World: Travis Simms KOs Brittney Skye being ahead on the scorecards. No SD or some shit like that, Simms is still getting better

Butkiss' standing has been exaggerated ever since he beat Deep Freeze but Deep Freeze wasn't ever going to be able to cope with a sustained attack from a light heavyweight. Deep Freeze' maximum weight was 175...that is why he stayed at super middleweight. It was a bad move moving up and he paid for it but this doesn't make Butkiss something special IMO.
In fact, I'm far more inclined to rate Butkiss due to his two failed attempts against Angus than his success against Deep Freeze because Angus out weighed him by a large amount and hits hard even against heavyweights. Butkiss managed to sting Harold and took some extremely powerful punches from Angus. Those same punches have knocked out bigger men than Butkiss but he didn't cave in until the the final round.
Jones is possibly faster but he's shorter and he isn't naturally strong at light heavyweight. His maximum weight is 4Ibs below that of Butkiss and although he might possess the harder punch, that doesn't equate to much when I know he couldn't hurt Deep Freeze 7Ibs below the light heavyweight limit, where he is stronger.
I think it'll be a good fight between two very good fighters and if I'm going to pick a winner it'll be Butkiss on points because I believe Jones has the stamina and chin to go the distance.

Looks like Jones proved you all wrong..despite being a somewhat small Light Heavyweight.
He is definitely willing to give Butkiss a rematch.
Jan 20 2008, 10:59 AM
And Butkiss demands one. He believes there is no way he lost that fight. We shall see if Roy can slither away with the undisputed titles in a rematch.
Jan 20 2008, 11:01 AM
Cyrus, Roy dont duck no one. He believes he is the new SUPERSTAR of WeBL. He will fight anyone from Butkiss to Deep Freeze.
Jan 20 2008, 11:04 AM
Butkiss says Roy sign on the dotted line!

Jones came through...BIIIIG win right there....Butkiss ain't no joke. He's a killer. I'mma catch the replay right now...
Damnnnn...that was a battle...Jones takes the lead, Butkiss takes the middle....tight championship rounds with Butkiss really goin for it in the 12th...Jones gets rocked and survives...
Looking forward to their rematch for two reasons now....one, for its entertainment value....and two, because Bobby "Tick Tick" Boome is armed and ready to explode on the winner.
The Dungeon wants to Own the heavy hitting divisions.

Butkiss obviously respects lil Roy's power. He didn't want to fight his usual inside fight.
Jan 27 2008, 09:33 AM
If Roy is coming back to 168, lets make Pascal vs. Jones II for the title.
Jan 27 2008, 09:33 AM
Butkiss opened Roy up like surgery and him hurt in both of the final rounds. Butkiss is king of the light heavyweights again. He beat him clean and clear. Now, I just don't know what I'm supposed to do with Butkiss lol.
Jan 27 2008, 09:35 AM
Roy is going to knock a few bums out...starting with the bum who beat my beloved prospect, Raiden.
Jan 27 2008, 09:38 AM
Butkiss should definitely NOT retire because there are some good fighters out there.
Allan Green is 17-0 with 13 knockouts. Otto Blatty has never fought Butkiss so far and Bobby "Tick Tick" Boome does have a loss against Butkiss in his record but should get a title shot in the near future. And some time The Genesis will have to get another shot, too.
Oh and dont forget about always dangerous Terrence "Ten-Count" Tunney!
Jan 27 2008, 09:43 AM
The trash talk for Jones-Pascal II has begun...."Fuck around, I'll go over to Toronot and SLAP YOU!"
Jan 27 2008, 09:48 AM
Blayde makes some good points. Perhaps Butkiss should stick around and clean out 175 again.
Jan 27 2008, 10:21 AM
Hmmm..Butkiss and Judah are building up quite the rivarly...lets make this freakshow happen cyrus. come on, it'll be fun.
Jan 27 2008, 10:27 AM
I've announced that Boome wants his shot a few times now....we've been waiting patiently, and he clearly deserves it.
