Default Re: Was Calzaghe's masterclass V Roy Jones the most . . . . . . .

Joe liked to throw for a full three minutes and Roy was notorious for fighting in spots; then again he was so far ahead of his competition, he could afford to do so. Roy would need to hurt Joe early. He could conceivable drop him (after all the old version did) and go for the finish, but if he didn't Joe likely makes the last rounds ugly and tightens up the cards.

I think stylistically Peak Jones, 94-96 ish would be all wrong for Calzghe.. Calzaghe would take too much punishment.. And his big heart, would ultimately be his undoing. Joe fought fire with fire... Roy was faster with more firepower.
