Sharkey was a human tornado. The Speedy Joe Choynski and Jim Corbett could not keep Sharky off of them.. Roy Jones has blazing fast hands, but he was never a dancer type that Corbett was, and seemed to get stuck on the ropes or the corners.

Sharkey would quickly expose Roy Jones fear of getting hit, and either score a knock out or get DQ'd while trying.
