It would have played a huge part in my opinion.

I can't see how it would be gruelling.

A fight in 2002, would have been close.

But if you had a time machine, and you had the Toney/Paz version of Roy at 25/26, I think it would have been an easy win for him.

Regards, Loudon.

Fair play

I think you're underestimating Joe somewhat, he was extremely tough and durable - certainly as tough as Hopkins who Roy landed good shots on but couldn't stop in 93, I struggle to see Joe getting stopped. He also had an excellent ring IQ, and Roy didn't fight 3 minutes of every round - I think around the 6th onwards he'll be feeling the pace Joe has set, and I think Joe will win rounds in the second half of the fight. But Jones will start fast and build a lead, while Joe will finish stronger, Roy will take the decision.

Also I doubt that quote would have affected his performance, he had cold feet against Lacy yet went in and put on a career best performance
