Q:

Roy, big UK fan here.

My question is this, and I hope it doesn't come across as shitty, I don't intend it to be that way.

Why are you continuing to fight at this point? Are you not worried you may tarnish your legacy? Enzo Maccarinelli wouldn't have been fit to face you at any stage until recently, he wouldn't have lasted a round in your prime. You are a successful rapper, a record holder and in your prime an absolute all time fighter, AND a successful commentator.

Why do you carry on fighting at this point? Is it pride, or search of a cruiserweight title? Would like to know.

Thanks, Roy!

A:

Not worried at all. Can't undo what's already been done!


Q:

do you think success is more determined by hard work, or natural talent?

Do you believe most people can be great at anything if they truly dedicate themselves to their craft?

A:

It's about defining your craft. Once you define your craft, you have to find God and he will take you to the top of where you need to go.


Q:

Hi Roy, I've been a huge fan of yours since I was little kid and I've always wondered, after having such an amazing career and being considered one of the all time greats, what do you think was your greatest achievement in this sport? Thank you.

What are some interesting things that go on behind the scenes at some of the fights that you get to see as a commentator that others rarely get to see?
Also, how/when did you know that "he not getting up, Jim"?

How does someone get involved in mainstream boxing promotion?

Q:

Hey Roy, it's been a big fantasy match of mine to see you training Vasyl Lomachenko! Would you be open to training him and what benefits do you see yourself giving him by being in his corner?
