I don't see Robinson being knocked out by Tarver past his prime. Really, I don't see a focused Robinson losing to Tarver anytime before 1960. I don't think Tarver is all that good. Look what Hopkins did to him. Roy is a great boxer, but we're talking about Ray Robinson just over the middleweight limit. Prime for prime Robinson takes it.

Actually, I need to change my vote here.

I thought the fight was at 160. At 168, I think Jones would beat Ray. 168's too much for Robinson.

I've said many times before...Roy Jones had the tools to beat anyone below 190,including the Sugarman.His combination of power/speed etc is second to none in history....

However..Could he actually beat Ray?IMO,Roy just has'nt shown enough tp prove he can...Having great physical attributes is one thing,to actually conquer the world with those is another.Ray,even without any footage of him at 147,has shown how a fighter goes to the limit and come back.At his best,I find it hard to see anyone besting him.The closest thing to a boxer/puncher in the history of this game.Bar none.

And he had a ton of heart....Roy's just never been stretched to that limit IMO...and consequently,I have to say Ray takes it at 160.To many facets to SRR's A-game for Roy.At 168,RJJ's size and his gifts might just be too much for Ray.

Somebody will have to do a hack of a lot to be considered a favourite against SRR.And in IMO,Roy just does'nt match.Love the guy.Great athlete.

Maybe I'm just a stickler for Sugar Ray Robinson,but he was the truth.
