    RJJ at his best was the most impressive fighter I’ve ever seen, more natural talent than SRL and not many could say that.

    Career wise SRL came out on top in an era of greats. I’d say without a doubt SRL ranks higher p4p of all time looking at their whole careers.

    Calzaghe scraped by him and Hopkins too. Very little in both fights, he gets so much credit for being undefeated but if he had of met either 5 years earlier it woulda been a different story

    Calzaghe got dropped by a foul and won every other round. It was about as far from scraped by as you could possibly get.

    Think you need to rewatch the Jones fight, pal. The Welsh Wizard sliced, diced and cut the American legend to bits. It was very hard to watch at times.

    Jones Jr probably my favorite of all time but I'd probably put Ray ahead of him, more signature wins

    I love RJJ but Calzaghe took him to the hole.

    Prime vs prime Jones would defeat him most likely.

    Agreed. Calzaghe would bring more fun than quite a few other fights, though.
