    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...

    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

    I really feel like Roy stops him. Can you imagine what prime Roy Jones would have done to the Kovalev that Canelo fought?

    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.
