Yeah' I really think Roy Jones cutting all of that weight to come back down to light heavy, had a detrimental impact on punch resistance. Same thing happened to Chris Byrd when he cut a bunch of weight to fight at LHW.

Thank you for posting this video.

FOR YEARS now, I have tried to tell people, citing examples from the Hopkins fight, Griffin fight, and even as late as Tarver-Jones I, where Jones has absorbed some big punches and either shrugged them off or fought through them. that Roy's chin is not as suspect as people assume. People think Jones had no chin his entire career, but nothing could be further from the truth. The fact is, his chin has deteriorated with the rest of him, AND he gets hit more now than before of course.
But I love the point of the video, the man could and HAS taken hard punches his whole career, but people only remember his career from Tarver-Jones II onwards.

Good thread

Time was Roy Jones was a lock for number 1 pound for pound.
He'd been that good so long that you almost forget how brilliant he was in his prime.

His last great performance was his first fight with Tarver.

Then came Tarver II.

3.03 and 4.24 weren't the best examples to put in there....

3.03 his legs do a dance.

4.24 his legs do a really good dance and he falls over.

Dancing legs is a sure sign of poor punch resistance.

the Del Valle knockdown was for sure a legit knockdown, but Roy turned his head and got hit on the side of the neck and end of the jaw. Real easy to get knocked down like that.

One legit knockdown (Del Valle) and then a 'stumble' after getting hit by a man who outwieghs you by 35 pounds? Seriously?

I've seen Evander Holyfield do numerous 'dancing legs'. Is that a 'sure sign of poor punch resistance' on his part too?
