On episode 273 of the #AskGaryVee Show, the legendary boxer, commentator, and rapper, Roy Jones Jr. is in the building and we talk about:
– How Roy got into boxing and turned it into his career as one of the best boxers in history
– Getting robbed of a gold medal at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, South Korea and how that helped Roy boost his boxing career to the next level
– Roy’s new training/fitness app, Star Vizn and how it allows him to tap into the social media world
– Roy’s cross over into hip hop/rap and how boxing paved the path for him to hack culture
– Roy’s transition into becoming a boxing commentator
#QOTD: How many of you guys are going to participate in Star Vizn, Roy’s training app, and learn Roy’s style of boxing?
32:25 – Roy, what is your prized possession? What is the one thing that makes you say “screw the money, screw everything else, this is the one thing”?
35:02 – Roy, is it true that you were going to fight Buster Douglas?
41:07 – I started a sports marketing company that focused on getting MMA fighters sponsorships and endorsements. It started doing really well, but then I ended up losing all of my money and savings because I was diagnosed with a rare form of eye cancer, which resulted in me losing my eye. I’m now trying to build a YouTube channel and am looking for some tips, what would you recommend I do? Also, because I’ve faced a huge financial and emotional loss with my eye, does it inspire you, Roy, as an athlete to see a fan face a huge loss and comeback stronger as much as it inspires a fan of you to see you take a huge loss and comeback stronger?
Did you know that science has proven that Roy Jones Jr. is the best boxer in history?:
