Roy Jones Jr's Legacy



I was reading through some comments on a post talking about 'Roy vs Benn' what would of happened and to my surprise people were actually giving Benn a serious chance. No disrespect to Benn he was a brilliant fighter and produced some really entertaining fights, but the man just wasn't in the same league as Roy Jones, no one was if we're completely honest with ourselves. In his prime Roy was unreal, say what you will about the opposition that he fought, but no one could beat them with the ease and style that he did.

But anyway back to my point- I see it a lot in the comments on anything about Roy Jones, people saying that in his prime he would of lost to the likes of - Benn, Eubank, Collins, Calzaghe, Hopkins (in a rematch) and Toney (if he was in top condition). IMO i think Roy would of beaten all these boxers with a similar amount of ease that he did everyone else, but i know of plenty of people the disagree and i want to know why they think these guys could of beat Roy, or if you think they could at all.
