    You have to use that against elite fighters if you punch without layering your offense then you will be too predictable, you make Toney sound unbeatable.

    He doesn`t like me either because I don`t rate the 90`s Brits at 168.

    Mayweather did a much better job of facing the best than Roy Jones did. I don't think it is at all comparable.

    Its absolutely comparable because Mayweather cherry picked, made sure the deck was stacked in his favor, ducked guys until he thought they were old, and never once unified a division. He and Jones were garbage and basically signed the death certificate for boxing with their cowardly bull**** and self interest to the detriment of the sport that gave them everything.

    Would a loss really have hurt their standing that much?
