Jones Jr went on to beat Glen Johnson conquer Omar Sheika and the great American SMW hope Jeff Lacy.
Heck to the no. Jones never fought Glen again.

Yes slightly past prime just like Calzaghe but more importantly I believe that Roy was fighting 'clean' at this stage of his career.

Roy Jones Jr in 1996 was an incredible fighter, a once in a generation athlete blessed with blurring speed, sublime skills & supernatural reflexes.

Roy Jones Jr in 2008 is the very definition of a shot fighter, a worn out & weary shadow of his former self.

If you remember correctly, Roy had now adapted his body back to 175 and was back on a good winning streak, dismantling Trinidad who had destroyed Mayorga and William Joppy as he cruised through the weight divisions. The fight was only Calzaghe's 2nd at the weight and he travelled to america despite the likes of Hopkins, Lennox Lewis, Tarver, and Johnson all predicting that Jones would beat him. What made the performance even more amazing imo was that Calzaghe recovered from a brutal illegal forearm in the 1st round, only to get up and completely bamboozle Jones with superb lateral movement and delicious 4 and 5 piece combinations throughout. What makes the win even better in my eyes is that after the fight, Roy then went on to produce a clinical exhibition V Jeff Lacy and then gave his own virtuoso masterclass versus Glen Johnson conqueror Omar Sheika proving that he still had plenty left in the tank. Your thoughts please?


It's worth pointing out Guru that Jones' loss to Calzaghe was sandwiched in between a 5 fight winning streak, where Jones had looked sharp against Hanshaw, Trinidad, Sheika then Lacy. Jones problems weren't with himself, they were with his opponent and Joe was electric that night

Damn there really is absolutely no middle ground in this debate is there?!

It was a decent win against a fighter who was on the decline. He wasn't completely shot as people make Roy out to be at the time, but he certainly wasn't the fighter he was in his prime. That said, Calzaghe was hardly in his prime either, which lends a bit more weight to the notion of it being a decent victory.

I could go into great detail but I'd probs end up coming across as though I'm giving Joe too much credit which I'm not trying to. Decent win, nothing more, nothing less...
