Bernard Hopkins and Roy Jones Jr now in Dangerous Territory! By Johnny Benz (Oct 9, 2009) DoghouseBoxing
According Golden Boy Promotions' CEO, Richard Schaefer has confirmed that on December 2nd, Bernard Hopkins will face off against Enrique Ornelas at Liacouras Center on the campus of Temple University, Philadelphia. It's the same date that Roy Jones Jr. faces off against Danny Green in Australia.
If both Bernard Hopkins and Roy Jones Jr. make it past their upcoming fight, then the two have agreed to a rematch sometime in 2010.
Although Green and Ornelas are considered tune-up fights, Schaefer believes both Jones Jr. and Hopkins have entered dangerous territory because they are fighting guys with nothing to lose.
Quoted by ESPN, Schaefer stated: "For both guys, Bernard and Roy, there is much at stake. If you fight guys who have nothing to lose it makes them that much more dangerous."
