RJJ has wins over BHop (generally the same as Haggler, and the margin was much clearer), Toney (as good as Benitez), and Ruiz (he was a heavy, 70 lbs heavier than Roy' starting wt, and a conqueror of heavywt HOFer, Holyfield).

He generally disposed of his opponents much more decisively and was overall, a better athlete.

He was the best of the past 30 years. (Other possibles: SRL, Sweetpea, Floyd)
