Default Re: How shot do you think Roy Jones is now after recent fights?

You're trying too hard. A dead cat could see Jones is done now and has been for years though he does surprise us every once in a while with a good/decent performance or glimpse of his past self(Lebedev before the ko, Lacy, against a fat Trinidad, Hanshaw). I love Jones but he was NOT shot during the Tarver 2 loss but the weight did affect him as early as post-Ruiz which he wasn't prime for Ruiz either. He looked like a shell starting with the Tarver 3 loss and I feel that's the best time to consider him shot. Even Joe knew he was done that's why he fought him and yes it wasn't Hopkins' fault Jones loss to Green but he knew that Jones had no chance against him once the horrid rematch was happening. Weight problems affected him first before he became shot and anyone could tell if they compare the 90's-02 Jones to the one of 03-now(With Ruiz he gained much weight & muscle so of course he'd be slower).

Calzaghe also says that in his autobiography.

Exactly.

I remember watching the 1st Tarver fight on a delay on Sunday night on the BBC.

After jones won - where he clearly had lost a lot- Steve Bunce said he looked like an old long lost cousin of the Roy Jones we are used to seeing

He was right on the money!!

True.

Calzaghe should of fought Pavlik instead. Frank W wanted him to face Pavlik which is why those guys fell out.
