He was very much on the attack, not usually on the retreat when he was he was scoring.. I just hate the comparisons that judge the way he fights now to the way he used to fight
Definitely. Have been watching his whole career again and the guy was superman. The angles he attacked from, the power, the speed, the defensive maneouvers. Even the showboating I loved. He was a great showman and an even greater fighter. The best I have ever seen, and probably will ever see.
What was so incredible about Roy was that he could do things that were so fundamentally wrong and get away with it. Its like he was born to fight.
