Now clearly that doesnt mean that Joe will beat Roy but that brings us back to Tarver.....a southpaw with a left hook that Roy still cant see comming.....the point???
Tarver fought a Roy Jones Jr. that went down from heavyweight and then subsequently had his head knocked off by Glen Johnson. Stlyes make fights also applies to boxing. Hopkins was winning the fight and even dropped Joe in the first until his stamina faded in the fight. Bernard fought too conservative

Jones' defense was never perfect but he had unnatural reflexes and speed to make up for it. Too a degree I see your point but, he's adjusted lately though, and won't be dropping down from heavyweight.
