Jones Jr is a top 5 lightheavy but not "the greatest". Billy Conn, Archie Moore, and Ezzard Charles would beat him. Here is Jones Jr:YouTube - Roy Jones Jr. Highlight/Tribute Video

He waits a good 5 sec to throw it though, their best bet would be just to sort of crouch down and completly cover up, then when he throws it, they can counter and are temperarily out of danger.

If Jones would have retired after the Ruiz bout, we would all be saying that he was one of the All-Time Pound for Pound Greats EVER!

Jones was Ranked as the #1 Pound-4-Pound Boxer of All-Time in the Nov./Dec. 1997 issue of International Boxing Digest.

Named "Fighter of the Decade" by the Boxing Writers Association of America in 1999.

Larry was 35 and 36, he was undefeated because he was one of the greatest heavyweights of all time and was beating people by lopsided ud's and TKO's. After the fight with Larry, Spinks was asked what thought he did to win, and he didn't say anything because he knew he got very lucky to get that decision.
