Rashad Evans is no stranger to being around other famous athletes. If it's not Victoria Azarenka, it's Tito Trinidad or Michael Irvin or Bernard Hopkins. The latest turn sees Rashad getting some boxing lessons from none other than Ring Magazine's "Fighter of the Decade" for the 1990's, Roy Jones, Jr.

Here's video of Rashad working with Roy and talking about the experience.

Roy Jones Jr. was always a talented and athletic fighter, but I doubt he can teach much in terms of technique (relatively speaking compared to other great boxers).

He was good because of raw skill and speed. A lot of the guys he beat were better boxers as far as technique goes.

I hope Roy Boy didn't teach Rashad how to mumble his words incoherently.
