I had a debate recently with bazzlad about the possible outcome of a fantasy fight between Roy Jones Jr, circa 2002-2003, and David Haye, the current incarnation.
I take Jones via decision, I think Jones was the best fighter in the world at that point, and it was only after the Ruiz fight we saw him fall from grace.
Bazzlad takes Haye by knockout. He said Haye's power would be too much, and Jones would fall quickly and unceremoniously.
I've spoken to one other poster about this (he can identify himself if he so wishes), and he said he'd take Jones. I said I'd set up a poll on here to gauge opinion, because I'm genuinely interested. I'll only include the winner of the fight, not the method, because I don't want to dilute results too much. Obviously there is no right or wrong, I'm just interested.
For the sake of simplicity, I'll include the Ruiz factor in the question, since those are the two periods of the respective fighters careers I'd like to compare, and Ruiz is a convenient common opponent. He also represents both guys' best win at heavyweight, for whatever that's worth.
