Yesterday and today, guys are asking themselves, shall I go for it?

Shall I step in the ring with Roy Jones, swing for the fences, hope I land that Hail Mary shot, and collect $100,000?

The Fight A Fan Challenge, which will unfold on March 20, will be a streaming PPV, on URSHOW.tv.

Here’s a description on their website.

Jason Falovich created the channel and the concept of the event. He is a former representative to Evander Holyfield, ran one of Muhammad Ali’s foundation, gogvc.com, and is now president of URshow.tv, a digital TV network.

Couple things I wanted to know: Is the Jones fight an exhibition? Is there a commission overseeing in AZ? And will Roy punch back?

“The commission is overseeing it, it is a sanctioned bout,” Falovich told me. “Roy will go all out!”

Pity the poor fan!
