Jenna J Quotables:
“No I don’t think Amir Khan will cause any problems for Floyd Mayweather Jr”
“I don’t think Amir Khan deserves this fight!”
“Almost getting stopped by Julio Dias does not get you a shot at the best pound for pound fighter on the planet, honestly I think the fight is a bit of a farce”
“I don’t see Amir Khan posing any type of a problem for Floyd, Amir Khan has not been able to fix up all of his defensive flaws”
“I think Floyd will pick Amir Khan apart”
“If Floyd chooses to and hits Khan right on the button with the right counter shot he can stop him”
“I think Paulie Malignaggi possesses the speed skill and the ring smarts to really put it to Zab Judah and win a close decision”
“At some point I believe Deontay Wilder will be moved into a vacant belt or interim belt and he can call himself a champion without facing real champions. I believe that is what’s going to happen”
“I am just so confused as to why people even care about David Haye anymore. What has he done?”
“I don’t think anyone should talk about David Haye in any legitimate fashion anymore, if he gets the fight with Vitali Klitschko things will change”
“I think Tyson fury is fed up with the game in 2013. I don’t believe he will retire in 2014, you will see the comeback”
“I believe this version of Pacquiao will beat Timothy Bradley easier, he’s smarter, more defensively conscious, I see Manny boxing and winning a decision, 9 rounds to 3 at worst 8 rounds to 4”
“I don’t hold the optimism that I used to have that Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather will happen. politics the two big promoters won’t work with each other, another thing that will get in the road Manny Pacquiao better be prepared to take a lump sum he has not earned the right to dictate terms at this point, if he gets an offer he better take it because I think that is the last offer he’s gonna get”
