    Floyds widely aknowledged as having 1 of the best defenses in history, but over the last 6 months i've done both Jones's and Floyd's career sets.1 thing i've noticed is that Floyd seems to get hit more with the cleaner shots than a prime Roy.

    I don't have any stats or anything to go off (maybe somebody can dig some up) other than the Paz fight when Paz was supposed to not land a glove on Jones for a whole round.

    They both got hit with about 15-20% of their opponents shots.. They actually have a lot of similarities in their fighting styles. They use distance as their first line of defense and they use their superior athletic ability to create a lot of offense any time somebody breaches that first line because they both close the distance faster than most of their opponents could.

    They did use distance but on occasion Floyd would come in close and often chose to fight on the inside this is when Floyd would get hit with the cleaner shots.I think the only time Jones would get hit with the clean shots is when he went to the ropes.

    Pretty much, but Jones had a stubbornness about him.. he liked to fight inside sometimes.. and his way of doing that was to lay against the ropes and assure his opponent that it was safe to come past his first line of defense.. then Jones light his opponent up with short hooks to the head as a distraction for a digging series of body shots and uppers.. but yeah.. he's no FLoyd on the inside, so he ate some leather in the process..lol

    are you kidding, no contest, Jones had no chin and it took over 15 years for us to find out. Floyd has been put on queer street more times than a tranny ho.

    Agree with you guys.

    Floyd got hit a little more especially when fighting in close. Other than that he rolled with the punches so even ones that landed didn't have much effect. Jones tended to get hit more against the ropes and/or covering up.

    Well?

    It's not like he'd never been touched until Tarver got to him.

    Roy was just never the same after the Ruiz fight (and coming down in weight).

    Ruiz ruined him! lol.

    interesting how they used their distance without a standard jab. RJJ just pawed it out and hopped back. Mayweather uses his opponents jab to gauge distance.

    Neither is way better than the other imo. Theyre both great at what they do, Roy not so much these days, obviously.

    RJJ could land sure, enough to win a round? Nope.

    Enough to K.O him? If Floyd had dramas with Judha's speed what trouble do u think Jones's would give him?
