Spot on pal, Jones looked good in those 5 fights, what makes the Calzaghe win even more special is that Calzaghe's hands were shot and that Roy's weak punch resistance wouldn't be a factor in the fight . . . . it would all be decided purely on a skill level. Thats probably why so many boxing experts actually tipped Jones to win the fight before hand.
