    Who do you think has the better LHW resume between Hopkins and Jones Jr?

    I'm not asking who you think would win but who's resume you rate higher at LHW only. Not overall career resume

    Arguably top LHW wins for each -

    Hopkins -
    WBC champ Pascal
    Ring champ Tarver
    Undefeated IBF champ Cloud
    WBA champ Shumenov
    Jones Jr
    Wright
    Pavlik

    Jones -
    IBF/WBA champ Tarver
    Hill
    IBF champ R Johnson
    WBC champ Griffin
    Gonzalez future WBO champ
    Woods future IBF champ
    WBA champ Del Valle


    Who's resume do you rate higher?

    B-Hop for sure. Aside from the embarrassing string of KO losses which exposed the fact he was always packing glass up top (hence why he spent his entire steroid-enhanced prime avoiding legit bangers) and rampant steroid abuse, Roid has three losses at 175 to fighters B-Hop whooped and of course a loss to B-Hop at that weight too when Roid wasn't on his enhancements.

    Going into the Roid fight Glen Johnson hadn't recorded an inside the distance win in his previous six outings and he only stopped one of his next five after sparking a roided Roid out cold too.

    Tarver is like 9-6 (2 KOs) at the world level at 175 and fact is neither he nor Johnson ever blasted out any world class LHW like they did to Roid and the only world class LHWs either of them ever actually stopped apart from Roid are Harding who Tarver needed two attempts to get out of there and a shot Montell Griffin who Johnson stopped in round 11. Granted they fought some durable customers at that weight but fact is they weren't able to do to any other world class LHW or any world class fighter in general what they did to Roid.

    Johnson's top 3 KO wins

    1. Roid
    2. Shot Griffin
    3. Allan Green whose glass jaw is Roid-esque

    Taver's

    1. Roid
    2. Harding
    3. And Mundine's female dog Danny Green.

    I don't even dislike him, let alone hate him. In fact, I've never disliked him one bit.

    I think B-Hop. He's got Tarver too and Pascal is hugely underrated IMO. Cloud and Shumenov are solid if not great wins.

    I prefer Roy the man and think he was the greater LHW h2h in primes at the weight but think Hopkins CV there is more impressive. He also ran Calzaghe mighty close.

    I've posted pics in the past of all the fights of his I used to have stored on my one of my external hard drives (which was many) and his fights were some of the most popular on my old YT channel and I had a lot of subs. If you want to see some with real genuine hate in their hearts (no jesting mixed with some barbs and serious points thrown in for good measure by way of retaliation) for certain fighters then look no further than some of Roid's biggest fanboys on here.

    Consistent barbs and jest equals hate to me.

    Again, I don't even dislike him even a little bit. It's some of his fanboys I have an issue with
