Please don't think I'm denigrating Roy in any way for calling for the Ruales-Garcia fight to be stopped when he did,as I wish to God it had've been stopped earlier.Jones was obviously spot on about this,plus he also showed compassion towards Bryant Brannon when beating him down (same deal with Reggie Johnson I always thought) and openly expressed trepidation about fighing Vinny Pazienza before they met.
I just found his humanity being at odds with his being a great pro fighter.
A complex person was Roy I always thought.
