Roy Jones at his best was not good, he was great. He also has 2 of the best names of the generation on his resume, that he beat easily. When you factor in what he was able to do in the ring, and how he looked in beating his opposition, you will realize it is more than media hype. The guy had true ATG ability. And contrary to popular ESB ramblings, his skills were showcased against quality opposition.
