Yup Jones suffered from it.

Sometimes,guys can be too good for their own good!

If you have to struggle to win,they call you a warrior,if you easilt beat guys,they say you're fighting nobodies.

Too an extent. Jones did fight an awful lot of below World level fighters in his days though, some serious no marks on his resume and for titles too. Fair enough there may have not been much about, but there was definitely more than he fought during that period.

Seriously half of these are at the level we berate Nathan Cleverly for fighting, and rightly so. Manufactured records and past prime.

This is also taking nothing away from Jones as a fighter, he was ****ing amazing. He still fought an awful lot of no marks.

I'm just saying, in hindsight it's not the record he could've had.

Y'all must have forgot!

Some of the guys Jones fought weren't great, but he completely dominated a lot of good fighters. Hell, Richard Hall gave Dariusz a couple decent fights and Gonzalez beat Dariusz. At the time they were seen as **** fighters because of how easily Roy dealt with them. Again, neither of those guys was great but they sure as hell weren't complete bums like most people made them out to be. Clinton Woods was seen as **** but he had a pretty good career after Jones demolished him. Some guys like Frazier on the other hand had no business being in the ring with Roy Jones.

Agree

Happened to Larry Holmes to, as-well as Floyd Mayweather. It'd be intresting to see who would of became what in a historical sense, had the supremely dominant fighters not been around.

Roy made decent C level guys look like absolute bums.
