Roy will be remembered for great performances, a shaky chin, and missing out on a fight with DM. If Jones' people care about him, he needs to retie now.

His win over James Toney made him the #1 active pound for pound.

He made James Toney look like a fool... a feat that few fighters have done (outside of Dave Tiberi)

Ruiz, by distance from Toney. Hopknins shouldn't be in this picture.

Got to be Toney. Most experts felt Toney had a very good chance of winning, and Jones completely shut him down.
With Ruiz everyone knew he was a shit heavyweight, it was whether or not he could take his punch and stay away from him for 12 rounds, there was no chance of Ruiz outboxing Jones, like some felt in the Toney fight.
