    Roy Jones vs Antonio Tarver. Tarver didn't have Roy's number, father time did.

    This. Holyfield was just a bad style matchup for Tyson.

    Tarver was in the right place at the right time. Prime RJJ toys with him.

    Exactly...in his prime, Griffith would have had no real problems at all with Minter.

    Whilst I agree it was more Age than Tarver that beat Roy, I expect that to be one of the toughest fights for him at anytime in his career.

    Canelo still would have got the decisions! Unless you expect GGG to finish both fights inside the distance? Which is quite possible.

    This one won't be popular with many Brits, especially Mancs.

    But Hatton vs Tszyu
