funny. to a point, i agree with what this says. but unless you care to make your case better then that, im not going to side with you. Make a better point, use reason and facts if you care to persuade anybody. (which is obviously what you want to do, or else why would you post on this forum?)Roy Jones and Floyd Mayweather.
Looking at their resume`s that title is bollocks really isnt it.
Explain how Shane Lennox beat every man he ever faced Roy didnt and couldnt. Lennox never ducked any contender. Roy ducked all the dangerous ones and handpicked the easy $$$$ ones. So you see there is no contest Lennox Lewis blows Roy Jones out of the water LOLRoy>Lewis...
Yeah I can see where you're coming from.I mean, i can see how people rate Roy very high. He looked AMAZING against B level fighters. he looked OUT OF THIS WORLD against them. And really Roy had AMAZING physical gifts (speed and power mainly) So when you see him do that to other B level fighters you kind of picture in your head him being able to do the same to A+++ level fighters. Truth is...Roy got beat twice by ANTONIO TARVER!!!!, who is complete trash.
I cant name many elite fighters Roy fought other then James Toney. (Trinidad doesn't count)
Meanwhile Lewis fought basically everybody worth fighting. Avenged his loses. Beat MANY elite fighters. And unified the belts.
Its very easy in boxing to say "well He COULD HAVE BEAT..." But i think when it comes down to it you can only judge a fighter from what they actually did, not what they could have done. And i think if you look at Roy like this, he comes up short compared to other fighters.
Roy priced himself out of every fight with a dangerous opponent. He was blessed with fantastic God Given talent yet basically wasted it by letting his ego rule him. Mayweather is headed samwe wayWhat most people need to remember is that when he got screwed in the olympics he didn't want to go overseas anymore to fight. Some of the elite super middleweights were overseas and he wanted them to come to america to fight. He even gave them seven figures to fight him and they all declined and none of them have responded to the king's call. You can't help it when other fighters don't want to fight you. I mean Darius was KO'ed by Julio Caesar Chavez and RJ UD him so it kind of tells you something...nevertheless it RJ not fighting them still doesn't take away that in RJ's prime....no one was going to touch him...no one...I forgot you said this quote but he said "The thing about Roy is that you can watch all the film you want and know what he's going to punch...the problem is you never see the punches coming" I paraphrased a little bit but that was the gist of what he said.
