    Yeah, I (barely) remember Boom Boom Mancini killing that guy back in the early-mid 80s. Poor dude's mom ending up committing suicide after her son was basically killed in the ring. I think that helped change some of the thinking in terms of a "better safe than sorry" approach.

    Oh, he'll be back on this forum. I'm guessing he'll wait a few weeks and try to blend in with some early season newbies under a different handle.

    What a coward. Pathetic.

    I wish I could've been the guy who held the 2k from both of you.

    Then, I'd have beat both of you and been 4k richer.

    (Totally kidding) ;)

    Well, thanks to the historical boxing discussion, I've been watching boxing matches from different eras, since I'm fairly ignorant of the boxing world. I stumbled on some fights from Roy Jones Jr, and I'm blown away. I love his style, his speed, his tenacity -- everything about the way he fights is so fun to watch. Mayweather is cool and composed, and I do appreciate his technical proficiency, but Roy Jones Jr looks like he is going to kill someone in every match I watched.

    Why haven't I heard his name come up in casual conversation? I've heard of a lot of the boxers of the past, and some of the big names of the present, but apart from a couple mentions in this thread, I've never heard of him. Why doesn't he command the same level of hype or respect as the other guys? He looks like a monster (and I mean that in the best possible way). Can someone educate me a bit?

    Roy Jones Jr, Pensacolas Pride!

    Physical beast who lost it once age crept up because he hadn't relied on technique for success. I think thats the general gist of it.

    It's surprising that 1 out 5 people here voted that Conor would win.

    That's exactly what he'll do. He won't be able to hide long, though. An inferiority complex isn't an easy thing to hide.

    His speed and power was unmatched and he was essentially unstoppable in his prime. Like mentioned, once his physical gifts began to fade, which conceiled some technical flaws, he started losing fights in dramatic fashion. James Toney and Bernard Hopkins are also great boxers from the same era worth checking out. Hopkins is in some ways the opposite of RJJ in his reliance on technical mastery and relative lack of power/speed.

    For all the people saying Conor did so well to last 10 eds. You do realise Floyd has arthritis in both hands. That seriously reduces his power let alone that size and reach advantage McGregor had. It was a textbook win by Floyd.

    RJJ is my favorite of all time. There weren't/aren't many things that make me as happy as watching him do His thing.

    His speed, reflexes some of the greatest ever. Ever.

    His accomplishments are also incredible when you look at where he came from.

    Like a lot of boxers he was accused of ducking fights. Floyd has been and was in this thread.

    He's a special fighter and top 20 imo.

    He dominated different classes and fighters. And also has an amazing record when you consider he was truly done around 2003.

    He's a fighter though and couldn't get enough.

    I think he's a great announcer too.

    Yeah, the time to look at whether he was done was during the fight. Of course after the fight it is easy to say you could have kept fighting. Dude just graciously eat your crow and be done with it. :cool:

    Dude hadn't thrown a punch in a minute. He was essentially defenseless.

    Most recent post by fs was this image.

    I am thinking of something Mayweather said at the last press conference.

    Cough cough.
