Default Watching this made me realize (Roy Jones jr.)

Just watching this made me realize Floyd is just a kid with skills compared to this wizard, just look at that ****. Nobody in this era could even come close to this. Oh, how we forget.

Definitely one of the two or three most skilled boxers I've ever seen.

More like least skilled.

There's a reason that the minute he lost some of his reflexes and speed he turned to dog ****.

Any boxer who loses speed and reflexes goes to ****. The second floyd isn't able to get away from those punches like he does, guess what? He's gonna get KTFO.

Same thing happened to Mosley and Oscar De La Hoya but luckily they didn't get their chins cracked like Jones did. Same thing just happened to Pac.

Wouldn't say he was the least skilled, but there's no doubt his inability to fight through adversity or take a decent punch just shows Jones really isn't some sort of animal that was on a different level to Mayweather.

In terms of what he could do with his fists..and basically his body,he was.

Griffin sparred with Floyd and said RJJ was much faster, and he was 30lbs heavier!

In terms of raw,freak ability, very few people in history can match RJJ.

Those 4 hooks, that 1-2.

He could do things in the ring,that literally no one else in history could do.

It was probably more of the fact he was so above of all his peers the drop in level was far more noticeable.

Sure he always showed flashes of brilliance with his speed and power but my point was about his overall legacy and standing and how it compares to a Floyd Mayweather.

Thats true, I was just making the point that his raw ability in the ring surpasses Floyd.

Floyd may go down as the greater boxer due to legacy and acheivements, but RJJ is still the man when it comes to ability.

In the modern era, you could compare his to Ronaldinho in soccer. He dropped off a lot while still young and was always erratic,and had flaws, but he could do thinks on the field NO ONE else could.

wrong Roy had 0 fundalmentals and relied only on reflexes and speed and had 0 to back it up..fighters like Hopkins have fundalmentals and can fight in
