Re: Why do people rate Roy Jones Jr. so high at middleweight.
Hopkins hit his straps a full few years after the Jones fight and his second 160 title fight is proclaimed as the fight that turned his career around. After this he was as good as he could be.
Jones is rated highly at 160 mostly on head to head. I would not be surprised to see him defeat plenty of the top 10 middleweights, even the top few.
