    Thank you for being logical.

    Not only that, we are talking about Corrie fukking Sanders. It doesn't matter if you have a chin or not, he could really fukk you up.

    Rahman said he's one of the hardest punchers he's ever faced.

    Only person to shake up Vitali



    But he was a 4 round fighter with no gas tank...I think Roy coulda took him :manny:

    Wlad was the only fighter in the division i had a hard time seeing Roy beat...i even think Roy woulda been able squeak by that old version of Lewis.

    Yeah we do know. If Roy was chinny there's no way he takes these several shots & is still upright:

    Look at 7:48-8:00 & you both get back to me. There's no way the Roy that went back down in weight eats these

    C/s and I'm a Holyfield stan...

    Lennox was at the end of his career at that point and would of had to be on his A game...

    IMO Roy only would of had trouble with the Klits because those mothafukkas were too big...

    Roy could of koed Ruiz if he would of went to the body more in the fight. I agree he should of stayed at HW or fought Tarver at CW. The weight dropped ruined him.

    Tarver.
    Had Roy stayed heavy and fought holyfield, Lewis etc. He's a super ppv star and goes out the GOAT (rather he actually was or not) I only see Lewis beating him

    Roy wanted to move up and fight Holyfield after he beat Montell Griffin in the rematch. I remember when Roy was on the Kenon Ivory Wayans short lived talk show talking about it. Roy met Holyfield too, but Evander felt that the fight wouldn't do anything for his career at the time.

    Iono about that, dude was so unconventional with holes in his game

    But he was so god damn physically gifted, he could do whatever he wanted to these dudes

    RJJ will remain one of the best fighters I've ever seen in my life

    Dude was just operating at a different speed

    I agree completely. He relied on an unorthodox style that isn't sustainable once a fighter gets older. He's the complete opposite of a fighter like B-Hop (The Tim Duncan of boxing imo)

    Like many others have said Roy was on top of the world and had did something that hadn't been done in like 100 years with his victory over Ruiz. Instead of Byrd Toney Holyfield and than Tyson as his final payday he decided to go back down in weight and change the whole trajectory of his career.

    I agree, after the Ruiz fight he should've stayed at heavyweight or retired. He had no business fighting that milkdud.

    To Roy's credit he tried to be his own boss but in the 90's Don King & Bob Arum had the networks in a choke hold. Floyd was only able to do it once Don lost it & the networks were tired on Arum. Roy was the biggest star but the big fights couldn't be made without those two.
