Problem is they are both old, and each is only a percentage of what they once were, so it makes it hard to say what it means to eachothers legacy. Its like a mini Trinidad vs. a mini Jones.

How do you know what it means, if a huge part of why one wins is the others diminished ability... I just dont know.

Then have a fight... that way you've got two fighters who have beat relatively good opposition - not two shot old fighters who ain't done shit in a while (think Vargas vs Mosley)
I would give Tito a better chance at beating Arthur Abraham than Kelly Pavlik, although I think he gets KO'd against both.

If Tito wins, he'll be worshipped. If......When Roy wins, no one will care.

But I just want to see who wins that all.

And whoever wins will have that person name on their resume. It's a nice trophy to have an ATG on your W list.

I'm sure if Roy wins Roy fans around the world will raise their head an cheer because Roy now has Tito added to his list of W's.

And Tito fans will do likewise if he wins.

This fight is kind of about redemption, both fighters want to redeem their legacy. It's not a bad thing.
I can see where you are coming from.. just hope neither gets hurt.

Of course, i'll care, but he won't get the same credit from other boxing fans as Tito if he wins.

RJJ on the other hand was KO'D in back to back fights. And then against Tarver 3 he was wobbled another 4 times. He has shown he is shot. You guy's need to get it together.
Haha, he looked great against Mayorga? You serious? Cory Spinks looked good against Mayorga, EVERYONE LOOKS GOOD AGAINST MAYORGA, the fact is that it took about 800 clean shots for Trinidad to KO Mayorga, in the 8th i think it was, meanwhile Oscar landed 1 clean left hook and sent him to the floor... Bottomline is that he is shot, and these go into retirement and then come out again for 2 years at a time will not make anyone better only worse, and considering that hes been out for 2 years and now coming up in weight to fight Roy Jones (albeit all the diminished skills) will just make Tito look kinda like Corrales (rip) when he moved up to fight Clottley

****ing kidding me? Tito is an average puncher at 160. At 170 he's gonna be Spinks Junior. He has no chance against Jones. None.

Not as much as beating a prime RJ but yeah I would give him credit. At least it makes his stats look great. He would have then beaten 5 US Olympians.

They are both over-the-hill, but Jones will beat Tito.
