It was a yawner and he was in his prime. If Hopkins would have pressed him hard and threw at him I believe he would have beaten him with realitive ease. Once he put Jones back to the ropes Roy was very limited and really had no way to get out. Those rounds I gave to Hopkins. Hopkins just decided to not go all out each round. His fault, his loss. When Johnson put Roy against the ropes Roy was dead in the water and was dropped for almost an hour. All Glenn did was what Hopkins did not do. Continue punching.

Hopkins felt Jones`s punch and that was one reason why he didnt "press him hard". Just walking Roy Jones down was dangerous. He could punch. Check out his performance agasint James Toney at `68. Toney was an exceptional fighter himself but Jones was just too damn fast.

Not counting Burley out or even saying he would be dominated but I would go with Jones based on that incredible speed and footwork.
