Course you dont cause they arent your hero.

Jones today still has more than most and he has been KOed a few times like most fighters, this crying is pathetic


The man used to toy with and beat around the ring far far lesser fighters all the while mocking them

where was you then ?
Exactly. This thread is a joke. None of these crybabies show up at clubfights and protest for all the fighters with more than 4 ko losses to be banned from fighting. And hes fighting Max Alexander FFS, the guy has 2 kos. F@ckin clowns on this thread.

Neither Marciano nor Jones could carry Larry's jockstrap.

Edit: Larry has only been stopped once after coming out of retirement to fight a prime Tyson. So, there

and Larry fought cans during his entire run..(He got robbed against Spinks which redeems himself in my eyes)

I have no problem with him fighting at Light Heavyweight.

"He will still beat 90% of the cats out there"..

People bang on about Hopkins, even a shot Roy Jones Junior. Was giving Hopkins trouble, and as per usual Hopkins was bitching and moaning, and acted his way to victory.

Hopkin's is just as shot as Roy Jones Junior, and Chad Dawson will show this.

That's debatable and still Mike Tyson is head and shoulders over anyone on Roy's resume.

Let's compare where Larry was at 42 years-old: Larry was handing an undefeated, gold medalist, and power puncher his first lost.

Roy at 42: fighting a bum...just like in his prime.

As long as we can get a secured and out of the way location for the few days leading up to the first few press conferences, or the fight itself, we can figure out a way to detain him and convince him to retire.



WHOSE WITH ME?! SAVE JONES JR!

Ray Mercer? You gotta be kidding me. Any time Mercer stepped up in class, he lost. His only true "win" was losing a close fight with Lewis. He's the Leon Spinks of the late 80s...and that's probably one of Larry's biggest wins..over an overhyped journeyman.

Mike>>>Anyone on Roy's resume

Prime Lights Out and budding B-Hop>>>>>Anyone Larry beat.

Okay. It's obvious you are still a juice box drinker.

I'll tell you what: Post a poll as to who has the greater legacy in the classic forum. If RJJ comes out on top, I will bump this thread with an apology and change my avatar to a RJJ pick of your choosing for three months.

If Larry wins, you have to do nothing.

Sound good or you want to play it safe like Roy?

I will check back tomorrow for your answer.

how did you come to the conclusion that hopkins is as shot as roy jones, when roy jones consistently gets creamed by guys he would've outclassed in the past, while hopkins is still, consistently might I add, putting prime, top fighters through the gauntlet? are you serious?

That's what I'm curious about. Because if he's not in $$ trouble, that would be very interesting.

Why such venom for Tarver?

Somebody should have stopped him from spending.
Anyone know what the source is on that?
