that is HYPOCRISY. and a failure to give credit where due.
What are you on about Buster?
How is any of what I said hypocrisy?
RJJ was once upon a time an elite boxer. He had incredible speed, reflexes, combinations, footwork, all the qualities that make a great fighter, and more.
Danny Green is a robotic B level plodder who does nothing particularly well, but at his ideal weight has good stamina, a sturdy chin, and heart.
Green caught Jones at least 5 years past Jones physical best, and IMO, complacent.
Green was damn lucky that night IMO.
Sorry if I can't give credit to a plodder beating an ATG in his retirement.
