Default Re: How shot do you think Roy Jones is now after recent fights?

He was past prime against tarver in the first fight and dug deep.

In the rematch tarver landed a beauty.

By the time jones fought johnson it's obvious he's shot.

Since the johnson fight what's he done? Lose to tarver by near shutout, beat two no marks and a retired middleweight, lose to joe, beat sheika and jeff, lose to green, hopkins and lebedev both by knockout.

Jones is terribly shot and is getting noticeably worse.

Anyone thinking he was up against dennis is crazy btw.

Wasnt a shut out by any means in the third Tarver fight.
He looked bad against Johnson, but after that looked alot better against Tarver losing a decision against the champ, then beat 3 fighters. One an undefeated SMW contender, and another being Trinidad who was considered Hopkins biggest win by some.
After losing to the champ again (Calzaghe), Jones then clearly beat Lacy and Sheika. Sheika went on to give Diaconu a tough fight and nobody felt Diaconu was shot.
If we look at Jones last 2 fights against Lebecev and Hopkins -
Against Lebedev Jones was ahead on one card in the final round and unlucky not to have a KD scored against a CW who had just fought a world champ to a SD and
Against Hopkins, Jones scored a KD that Hopkins made out was behind his head as he wasnt able to continue without some time out and Hopkins is now recognised as the LHW champ. That could have been a KO win for Jones.

What does that say about Hopkins who could have had a KO loss against him?
Diaconu who was pushed by Sheika who Jones stopped in 5 easy rounds
Toney and Huck where Toney was beaten every round by Lebedev and some felt Huck was lucky. Jones was unlucky not to have scored a KD. That you cannot deny

One judge felt so, but what ever way YOU saw it and I highlight that as you change your scorecards to fights on a regular basis. Jones still wasnt dominated like Toney and could have had the benefit of a KD against Lebedev and Hopkins

Valid points and factually correct but you have to analyse it with a bit more scrutiny.Roy was considered for a time the most talented fighter since Ray Leonard,lofty praise but for a change with some justification.I don't think the Trinidad Roy fought was anything like the live contender of old.I always felt Roy's problem was he probably reached his physical peak at LHW,a division which with all due respect,didn't contain the names that you would hope would be on the resume of a true crossover ATG.I think he went stale there,and there really isn't much of a case for arguing that it was downhill all the way after Ruiz.Statistically you are spot on,but you have to scratch the surface and look a bit deeper here.

What prime Toney who couldnt beat S Williams, looked lucky against Tiberi and couldnt beat Thadzi or in his fight after Jones couldnt beat novice midget M Griffin . Yeah top draw. How many SDs had Toney fought to then .
Toneys best win was a come from behind win in a fight he was losing (Nunn).
Was Hopkins prime? What having his first world title fight and then needing another 2 attempts after to win a world title after only being able to draw with Mercado and being floored twice and having to hold on . Thats prime is it

I agree with the second part,but Joe didn't do a great deal for the vast majority of his reign either.

The Jones from the Tito and Calzaghe fights is much better than todays version.
Roy is about 20-25% of what he was in his prime.

The Tarver KO shot him. He's so gunshy and weak now. His legs are gone and he has a soft spot on his head. He's a shot fighter.
