Default Could Anyone Beat Roy Jones MW-LHW?

Is there anyone from MW to LHW that could beat a prime Roy Jones, or at the very least, give him a tough fight?

Loads would, many more could.

But how many would I make a favourite to beat him? Only one man.

If he had to fight Sugar Ray Robinson at mw with a same day weigh in i'd make him a very slight underdog.

Anyone else between those weights I think i'd favour him over.

Robinson is a small MW even under same day weigh ins. A decent sized MW under same day weigh ins should gain 5-7lbs without having too much sweat making weight,just de-carb, cut a bit of water, make weight, eat carbs/rehydrate, fight at 168

Meaning Jones comes in the ring at 165-168 to Robinsons 155 - big advantage there

Jones at MW came into the ring weighing about 180! He couldn't make MW under same day weigh in rules

I seriously doubt Foster would beat Jones.

also Bernard Hopkins....

When Jones, won neither man had peaked. When Hopokins won, Hopkins was a bit past prime but Jones was washed up. They never met prime vs. prime... I say it's a close hard fought fight.

He said he came down from 178-180 at the start of camp. He doesn't put the full 20 back on overnight. He likely came to the ring 170 or so.
