Roy Jones Jr. His performances put my jaw to the floor and were like nothing ever seen before. Floyd's fighting is a different kind of amazing. Equally effective, but not as impressive per say.

The best sequence of punches I've ever seen was the finishing combo on Pazienza. Every expert predicted Pazienza would go the distance including Steward but that finishing combo sealed the deal.

Roy Jones physical gifts were outstanding an what made him special but when father time caught up to him his technical flaws were exposed . Floyd a far superior technical fighter but in there respected primes Roy far more impressive

RJJ was always a PPV stinker, nobody was a jones fan in jones "prime"

oh btw kids, its easy to look like superman when you fight cab drivers and washed up has beens. I could make brandon rios look like a skilled boxer if I put him in against the right opponent.
You've never yet said anything on this board that wasn't bone ignorant, in any thread about any topic.

Floyd's a half step below SRL and fighters on the very highest level, half step above Castillo and guys like that. He's gotten shook by guys like Corley in his prime, Castillo took it to him pretty good. Prime RJJ is in the discussion for GOAT, he's not a half step below ANYONE. The 2nd best MW in history, whether you think it's Hagler, Hopkins or Monzon, don't sweat him at all. Same for SMW.

so everyone Floyd fought was a full time fighter without a real job? Wake the **** up. Also look up one of the 11,873 times this fact has been stomped to death and should have been stomped out of existence on this board. It's something only an idiot would say at this point. So hello, idiot.

Yes. Because Floyd is known as an all action warrior.

Even though RJJ may have been somewhat ''tedious'', it is irrelevant. The question here is who looked more impressive in their prime.

Jones had so much athleticism he looked like a ****ing superhero.

Some of you guys' learning abilities are subpar to say the least.

RJJ no doubt about it. RJJ was all about tremendous athleticism and entertainment. Charismatic and a badass.

Floyd is skilled, but most of the time boring. He is also a piece of shit as a person.

Tbh I thought what mayweather done to Corrales in the final 10 seconds of round 7 was quite similar.
