Seano scores it for Canelo
That’s racist as fuck, if you are going to use pictures use the real ones, not those pictures of Eddie Murphy and carrottop
Cuba Gooding Jr. would abuse Ed Sheeran
2001 RJJ could take on several elite guys at a time.
They both pissed hot

this made me laugh out loud in the pub
To answer the question, Roy would absolutely dominate! Faster, stronger, bigger punching power, better variety of offence, impossible to land clean on, great at cutting off the ring.....did Roy have a flaw before Father Time caught him?!? And now we watch Canelo beat a fading champ in his only fight at 175 and now we’re questioning how he would do against arguably the best 175er ever. One sided as f*ck here fellas
2001 RJJ? Canelo gets retired and possible permanent damage... And I say this as a Saul Alvarez fan...
i had to scroll up to see who started this thread...and that was all
Amen. Maybe it's biased but that dude was supernatural
If Canelo thought Floyd was hard to handle, it would have been Roy playing with him for the entire fight, not even trying to engage back in 2001
Canelo KOs him.
I really feel like Roy stops him. Can you imagine what prime Roy Jones would have done to the Kovalev that Canelo fought?
RJJ via 3rd round KO
RJJ's peak was at 168 lbs in 1996.
Canelo's peak was at 154 lbs in 2016.
This would be more competitive than people would like to think.
Montell Griffin has a similar frame to Canelo, and he was actually beating RJJ on one card before RJJ was disqualified for hitting a grounded opponent in the 9th.
For the reputation he has, RJJ's resume is pretty thin.
Vinny Paz is sort of considered "the little train that could", but from RJJ's first 35 fights, he's probably his 2nd best win. His best win being Toney. Everybody else was either too green or too faded.
