    Roy has just simply lost his speed and thats why hes taking punches now. I can see him beating some bum for one of the belts but he will never dominate at any weight class again.

    Yeah, it's too bad.. a lot of great fighters have been going down over the last year: Hopkins, Roy Jones Jr., De La Hoya... Tito Trinidad is still my favorite.

    Americans for some reason have never been good at the supermiddleweight divison at last for around 20years not sure why, but the last good super was Roy jones who never stayed at super middle for long!

    James Toney IBF Super Middleweight champ 1993

    yes...............Roy Jones Jr he was so good at 168 that he moved up to a real division and ruled it for 8 years...

    And Steve Collins was better and beat up both Nigel Benn 2x and Chris Eubank 2x.

    sure but collins only just beat Eubank and wasnt america anyway also keeping in mind that germany has two current supermiddle champs Markus Beyer and Mikkel Kessler and remember Sven Ottke(weak hitter)was champ for 22 fights .
    James toney champ for 2years
    Frankie lies champ for 4 years
    Iran Barkley Champ for a few fights
    Micheal nunn champ for 2 years
    Roy jones champ for 2 years
    Brant Mitchell Champ 1year

    Calzaghe has been champ for nearly 3 quarters of the combined time of the above!!

    The UK and Germany has had more supermiddle champs with only a third of the population of America!!

    That is because the American fighters move to to the competative classes like 160 or 175.....that is where the great fighters are.....the 168 and 200lb classes are where the lesser fighters stay. Why in 8 years did Calzaghe not bother to fight Roy Jones at 175 or Hopkins at 160???? Because he knew they would destroy him.

    Just one last note, RJJ would of destroyed anyone back then but not hopkins

    Jones refuse to fight anyone from europe who would give him a tough time remember WBO champ Dariusz Michalcewski 9 years at Lightheavy who beat
    Hill on Points
    Richard hall in 10
    derrick harmon in 9

    and destroyed MONTELL GRIFFIN IN 4

    So my point is that jones was just as relucted to fight across the water as the European Fighters were due to hometown decisons

    It is common now for people to say Jones avoided hard fights but all you have to do is look at his record and you will see he fought and beat the best of all time. Hopkins has a style that is unlike Jones but he would and did beat the best also....the europen fighters did and would all fall to them.

    RJJ beat Hopkins by UD. He also destroyed Montell Griffin in 1.

    RJJ is just an incredibly talented athlete. It's really hard to compare him to any other boxers, regardless of same fighters fought. You can't just look at boxing records and say one fighter is better than another; totally different styles.
