wow! what a list. i always said rjj was as good as i ever seen at his prime nobody could touch him. but a dream match i have always had are 2 guys who are both on the list. it's hagler and rjj i know they are different weight classes but they are close enough to work it out. would hagler walk him down late or would jones dazzle and confuse him for a whole fight i dont know but if i have to pick one guy it would rjj at his best.

I just don't see Roy losing at 168

No one is ever unbeatable, but I think Roy was the closest that ever was to being unbeatable at a specific weight class ... and that's Super Middleweight 168 lbs

Here's my picks for who I'd favor, if any:

Ali: Wouldn't favor anyone. Lewis and Frazier are the best men for the job, I think. Tyson would have a decent shot.

Charles at 175: I think I might pick Spinks. Might not though. Foster and Jones could pull the trick.

Jones at 168: His opponent has to weigh in at 168 too? If so, that kind of limits things. If not, and we can just make him a full fledged Light Heavyweight (which he always was in historical terms), I'd favor Spinks and probably Charles and Foster. Conn would be interesting.

Hagler at 160: I'd favor Monzon, Robinson, Jones and maybe Hopkins. I might pick Leonard if he were to step up to 160 in his prime as well.

Robinson at 147: Wouldn't favor anyone. Leonard and Burley run him close though.

Whitaker at 135: I'd pick Duran. Several others who could do it, but none that I'd favor.

Mayweather at 130: As with Jones, if it's strictly at 130, it limits things. Still, I'd favor Armstrong, Chavez, and maybe Saddler. Match him with Lightweights, and there's a few more I'd add.

Pep at 126: Even peak for peak, I pick Saddler. Saldivar could make things interesting.

Jones at 168. Very big fish in an incredibly small pond, historically speaking.

yes, but you don't have to pick someone that fought in the actual super middleweight division. it can be anyone that's ever fought at or around the weight. would charles, langford, moore be able to beat a peak jones at 168?
