Former world-title challenger Mike Jones wrapped up his preparations yesterday at the Top Rank Gym in Las Vegas for Saturday’s 10-round comeback fight against Jaime Herrera, of Franklin Park, IL, at Bally’s Atlantic City.
It has been more than two years since Jones last fought. He was stopped in the 11th round of his IBF world welterweight title fight with Randall Bailey, of Miami, FL, at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas. That was June 9, 2012.
Since then, Jones, 31, moved from Philadelphia, PA, to Las Vegas, was idle for two years while working out daily in Las Vegas gyms, and now is trained by Ismael Salas and Miguel Diaz.

WHY PACMAN WILL GO FOR EARLY KO

 

Why Manny Pacquiao will go for early KO win against Chris Algieri
By Leo Reyes/ digitaljournal.com/sports


WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao may go for an early knockout win against WBO light welterweight champion Chris Algieri when they face each other in the ring on Nov. 22 at the Venetian Resort & Casino in Macau, China.
Pacquiao's longtime trainer Freddie Roach, who is not impressed with Algieri's credentials, could devise a plan that will save Pacquiao from the rigors of going for a full-length 12-round showdown to minimize the risk of an upset by Algieri.
The Hall of Fame trainer has downplayed Algieri's skill saying that the ex-kickboxer has nothing more than his good jab.
"His style, he's a bit of a runner. Pacquiao doesn't particularly like fighting guys who run so much. We'll figure out a way to beat him. It's not a problem. ... He's got a good jab. That's it,"
