Big name opponents
Breh denial is not just a river in Egypt...I'm a Holyfield stan....i reasoned ruiz, byrd, and toney losses as at least they were to "top" fighters...the loss to a nikka known more for catching a bare knuckles 2 piece by bowe than any of his wins..that did it
His biggest ppv was against a heavyweight
That tells you where the money was for roy
Failing to beat Ruiz clearly in 3 back to back tries should've been the time when @Big Boss got that alert from @patscorpio in his mentions.
at the time i didnt hate ruiz jsut disliked watching him...that didnt happen until the kirk johnson fight..thats where the ruiz hate ramped up lol...don was on some bullshyt trying to push that motherfukker but thought it was just a style clash..and i thought holyfield won that 3rd ruiz fight clear...and he looked good beating rahman after..so denial tony..and im sticking with it lol
The first 30 seconds
Calling Roy top 50 sounds incredibly insulting.
RJJ will be considered a p4p great forever. Nearly perfect fighter.
Roy should have stayed at heavyweight and just took it one fight at a time.
The Chris Bryd fight was right there! That's what makes this shyt fukking stupid. Jones had the WBA title. Byrd had the IBF.
Nygga, you had a unification fight, at the heavyweight division, against a smaller light punching heavyweight. What more could you ask for? It was THE perfect fight.
If he would have just went to heavy, won the WBA, & won a unification matched for the IBF and bowed out it would have been perfect.
Lennox had the WBC. No one really looked at that as a realistic fight Roy would actually take.
There where rumors of a unification fight against Corrie Sanders, the WBO champion at the time. I didn't like that fight for Jones at ALL, and this before I knew about Jones' chin issues. Corrie was known as a lazy hot and cold fighter, but if you watched him fight back then, you could really see glimpses of his talent. He would have been highly motivated for a Jones fight, just like he was for both Klitchko fights.
nikka I aint say where in the top 50.
He's prolly somewhere in the 30 range or some shyt, but I dont' have time to seriously evaluate his career to the point where Im accurately ranking him in ATG lists. That takes time and just randomly saying he's top 10 or some shyt is disrespecting all the greats that came before Roy. There lots of things that have to be considered when making ATG lists.
Boxing has a long storied history filled with awesome fighters. Just to be mentioned in the top 50 is a blessing in itself. Me saying he top 50 all time covers that shyt. It's like a ballpark figure. You acting like I said he top 500 or some shyt.
Roy didn't have any chin issues till he moved back down in weight bro
Fought in the no name divisions no star power opposite him
We legit don't know that. Roy just didn't get hit a lot at LHW until he slowed down.
