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.

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.......


Calzaghe wins.....watch

I thought Calzaghe would put on a performance but I was surprised at RJJ's lack of an answer. A great showing by Calzaghe & hopefully he fights Dawson before he retires. He's not a heavy hitter but it's just a pleasure to watch him school people like that.

Roy Jones Jr. reflexes and speed aren't there anymore. And at points he was still faster than Calzaghe.

Good performance by Calzaghe, but I still feel the Roy Jones of years ago would have countered and knocked down Calzaghe more than once

Well damn, Jones was looking alright till' he started waiting. ****in Calzaghe was standing right in front of him with his hands down! He just wasn't letting them go.

All of you that bet on RJJ were thinking about RJJ of the late 90's, in which RJJ would've beat Calzaghe and I wouldve went all in. But this is 2008 folks and well ya seen it for yourself.
