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.
I could write about Roy Jones for pages but like I said Tarver is a southpaw and Roy aint got much game when it comes to stopping that left hook.....Also Roy fought Antonio Tarver after going up to heavy weight then comming back down, but what about after.....
You see my point isnt that Roy had gone up then cut down....it that Roy has shitty defense against left hooks especially when they come from southpaws.....after Roy got reacclimated he was given another shot against Tarver and he knocked out even worse the second time and he was "adjusted", yeah Glen beat him too but at that point Roy had turned the corner already.......
