Versatile yes. But up to a point. Why wasn't he versatile enough to win more than 3 rounds from Roy Jones jr? Maybe a good punch would have helped him out.
He certainly didn't get anywhere against an acid test like Jones jr. All other foes were just so-so but the second title at an old age helps his rep that much more so that he seems
more than what he really is.
That's what people here love about me-my brutal honesty.
