    Roy Jones Junior couldn't beat Ezzard Charles with a bat, he wouldn't win, not ever. Archie takes his head off and Harold educates Jones. We had three LHW Michael Jordan's in the same era and Charles was there master.

    Ike-Man, even though I rank Roy Jones at no.16 on my all time greatest list, I believe in his prime there were times that he was as great or greater than any fighter that has ever stepped into the ring, including Ray Robinson. And I’ve never said that about any other fighter.

    Charles might win, but Jones would give him all he could handle.

    Probably Mayweather.
    But peak RJJ is more impressive than either of them.

    There really isn’t a good case to be made, outside of the fact that people hate Floyd and allow that to impact their judgement

    imo the case for Pacquiao is that he has better wins, more impressive weight jumping and longevity. I do agree that some people rank Mayweather lower than he should be because of their hatred. But I don't agree that Pacquiao doesn't have a good case.
