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.
Kicking off the action, the 2002 fight between Roy Jones Jr. and Glen Kelly airs today, at 8 PM ET / 5 PM PT on ESPN Classic. In this fight, Jones puts his hands behind his back, sticks his chin out, then knocks Kelly out with one punch in what Jones calls the “Chicken Wang” punch.
