    66 Ali was probably the fastest version of Ali, but still not as fast as Roy.

    Ruiz wasn't skilled either, plenty of big men from older eras were more skilled then him.

    THIS. Roy evades, avoids and uses his superior other worldly athleticism to avoid Frazier for eight or nine rounds but will eventually get roughed up and obliterated.

    Roy Jones Jr was like a shooting star in the sky, he went up, then crashed down rather early. He did not have longevity on his side at all. His time span was like a blink of an eye, Jones venturing into heavyweight fighting was not an all time great but a ponderous John Ruiz. Nobody, I mean nobody can lose a prime that quick unless he is Benjamin Button. He was very skilled in a very short period of time against rather slow fighters.

    Bob Foster would shatter Roy’s fragile Glass Jaw. Frazier likely puts Jones in a coma.
