Roy Jones (Jr)


  1. Antonio Tarver, Rocky Balboa, 2006.     The Boss – writer-director-star Sylvester Srtallone – saw Jones as Rocky’s final opponent, Mason Dixon (!). “I left him 31 phone messages but he never called back.” So, Stallone went to the guy who had beaten Jones to be the current light heavyweight champ. Tarver trained for five weeks, gained 25 lbs – and then demanded more money. And got it.
