Hooks will be flying in Biloxi on Saturday August 15 when Eight-Time World Champion, Roy “Captain Hook” Jones Jr. and Two-Time World Champion Jeff “Left Hook” Lacy battle it out in “Hook City,” at the MS Coast Coliseum. To prepare us for this highly anticipated match-up of speed and power, ESPN Classic will air past Jones and Lacy fights every night next week and all day Saturday.
Continuing the action, the 2003 fight between Roy Jones Jr. and Antonio Tarver airs today, at 8 PM ET / 5 PM PT on ESPN Classic. In this fight, Jones drops twenty pounds from his previous fight in this gutty performance to beat Tarver and regain the light heavyweight world title he gave up to fight at heavyweight.
