And someone said Jones was vastly more experienced despite Hopkins having one more fight? Why? Hopkins had 100 amateur fights.

If I had that kind of talent Id be challenging anybody and everybody, if I was Jones I would have gone for broke against Lewis, that was a win win fight if you ask me, he should have fought a world beater in every fight past 96 if you ask me, Eubank, Benn, Micknkanhdkhshkhd, Hopkins again, Lewis ANYBODY other than the big boys he would have beaten them all and actually would have had a point if he called himself the greatest.

So while im here sat in my armchair sipping my cup of tea I laugh at you Roy Jones, HA!

" And they got the nerve to say I aint fight nobody I just make 'em look nobody!" Roy is an ATG, he is going into the HOF.

Lennox Lewis said himself that Jones did try to fight him. Lewis told Jones he was unsure of his plans and that he may retire so he would have to pass. He said it on live HBO television.

And Lewis would have killed Jones.

Hopkins was nobody at that time and Toney lost 30 lb in 2 weeks, how great they were?

Yup, the trash talking excuse making sore loser Toney said it so it must be true.

awesome pic

I will say this jones did beat toney in his prime in 94 but he didnt beat hopkins in his prime you must hopkins didnt really hit his prime until 2001 when he beat tito 8 years later from the fight with jones just like lennox lewis said I didnt hit my prime until he was 34 and some over stupid qoute like i age like fine wine In both there primes they were pretty equal in my opinion

I'm sure he did have some trouble making weight just like countless other fighters have but he was experienced at that wieght and experienced at cutting down. I don't buy the 30 pounds in 2 weeks bullshit and I don't believe that weight had anything to do with why Roy was able to blow him out so easily. When guys are weight drained, it takes it's toll as the fight goes on. Toney was blown out completly from the opening bell to the closing bell. Roy was and always has been the better fighter and that's what won him the fight.
