    Tyson and it ain't close. Jones was great, and he could trouble some HWs due to his amazing speed, but Tyson also has great speed and he'd catch Roy.

    I totally agree with you here. It would not be close, TKO 1.

    Tyson. Jones can’t take that kind of power and can only avoid it for so long.

    It would resemble the Mike Tyson vs Michael Spinks bout in 1988, TKO 1, for Tyson.

    RJJ was fast but Tyson was explosive and powerful. Tyson via KO

    Bud, I know you’re f’ing around with these Roy vs Tyson / Ali threads but you’ve gotta rise above it. The desire to just say “**** it!” and settle down to the lowest common denominator level of posting is tempting but you’re better than this. Attrition takes its toll on all of us but that Doesn’t make it ok to quit. You’ve actually got a few people to give serious replies! Leave this type of **** to the markants and jakelamottas of the forum.

    It is just that I hear that Roy Jones Jr is super human, but I do understand where you are coming from.

    Yeah, in his prime he was special; the closest that Gen Exers would get to their Sugar Ray Robinson and Ali. But ultimately he’d never truly fulfill his potential. I’ve been wanting to start a thread for awhile about Roy not being an ATG

    And he smiles for the cameras, and moves his eyebrows at the same time, what a ham, Lol.
