10:23 AM ET 09.23 | It should be labeled "The Has Been vs. The Never Was." Legendary boxer Roy Jones Jr., long past his prime, will take on MMA punchline Kimbo Slice in an exhibition boxing match in December in Montego Bay, Jamaica, according to a report by the Jamaica Observer. The event is being put on by Jamaican company Giomax Entertainment in conjunction with Stewart's Auto Sales and it was organized to be part of the country's 50-year anniversary celebration. Mind you, Slice was born in the Bahamas and Jones is from Pensacola, Fla.

A claymation Celebrity Deathmatch style would be better than this imho. But put me down for Roy Jones Jr to win.

Even at Roy's age he'll be too fast for Kimbo to do anything. Kimbo should go back to backyard fights on Youtube.

Did you see the one where he knocked the guy's eye ball out the socket? He is much better suited against street bums with no fighting experience. Thats good tv
