Leonard has had to dig deeper and has a better resume to judge his mettle.

Roy has a better highlight reel and is definitely the more explosive puncher.

Both are extremely impressive, but in different ways.

Who knows, if Jones was tested more and had a higher level of opposition, he may equal or exceed Leonard, but that's not reality.

The fact is that Jones was more explosive against lesser opposition than Leonard was.

Or maybe I've had too many drinks to post a coherent thought....

Leonard fought and beat better fighters, no doubt.. But no one impresses me on film as much as Jones Jr, and it isn't that close.

Both are impressive, but SRL was equally impressive against superior competition.

I'm not really a fan of either...either. Either redundancy. I hate it when that happens. Anyway, interestingly, they both had contemporaries that they got the 'W' over that were in my top ten favourites list: Hagler and Toney.

Michael Jordan upon hearing that SRL has a better highlight reel than RJJ:

Dominique Wilkins was frequently refered to as the Human Highlight reel...yet:

MJ > Wilkens

and

SRL > RJJ

should be obvious!

Jordan's highlight reel > Wilkins' highlight reel - which is not the case with SRL-RJJ.
