    GGG has pretty much no chance against RJ. Terrible style match up for him, and he's also a far lesser fighter to begin with

    I don't recall Roy ever beating anyone like GGG, certainly not in his 160 lb days. Guys like Castro, Hopkins, and Toney all went the distance with Roy. I think only a case can be made for Hopkins being better than GGG out of those guys and I don't think he was.

    We do know that GGG handled Cubans in the ams and we also know that he beat (and earlier lost by a point to) a very similar and extremely talented fighter in Andre Dirrell in the ams.

    Roy tended to fight smart so he's the pick over GGG, but GGG would bring a lot of hope into the fight for his backers. Roy also picked opponents smart so he doesn't figure to ever fight GGG at 160.

    Years after the fact, picking Bernard at 160 seems like a pretty dumb move

    If Roy POTSHOTS, How's GGG Going to Counter Him???...Roy Could Land SINGLE Shots @ a Time on ANY Fighter in History...

    Tarver was Able to Catch Roy in an EXCHANGE, Throwing a Combination that Missed...Griffin and Harding MADE Roy Lead, and Had Success Countering Him...If Triple G Tries to MAKE Roy Lead, he Gets BEATEN to the Punch All Night and By the Time he Attempts to Counter, Roy's Already Playing DEFENSE...

    For What it's Worth, All 3 Guys REED Noted had BETTER Handspeed than GGG...

    Obviously, Roy WASN'T Perfect, but his Style is All WRONG for GGG...

    Two different levels where the guy at the higher level has a style thats all wrong for the guy at the lower level.

    Are You Suggesting Roy Jones ISN'T a Higher Level Fighter than Triple G and What EXACTLY Are You Basing This On???....

    Literally, This Would Be the FUNNIEST Roy Jones Opinion You've Voiced Since Picking WHOlio Gonzalez to Beat Him...

    I'm pretty hard on RJ these days, but it's obvious he was a much better fighter than GGG. We have to rebember that GGG best clear win is probably Lemieux or Murray.

    Or Jacobs.

    Oh sorry I see you said his BEST clear win.

    His next-best CLEAR win would be Jacobs.

    The term, "level" makes it seem like they don't belong in the same ring, like there's a bunch of guys who are not as good as rjj, but they are at least on his level. And ggg isn't as good as them, let alone RJj. But that's absurd. He certainly accomplished more than ggg has at this point, even at respective points in their career. And rjj is obviously favored to win. But another level? It's a fantasy. And shows a unrealistic assessment of rjj's ability and limitations. And hence, i object to the characterization

    Objection overruled. Case dismissed.
