Which is messed up. Nobody really knew how good B Hop was at the time, and RJJ made him look like a can. Same thing goes for James Toney. To a real boxing fan who saw RJJ when he fought on tuesday night fights in 1993, there is no doubt he probably was the best ever.
I like Roy on commentating. Only bad thing, it's like having a 15 second spoiler because Roy has this ability to tell you everything that will happen in a fight before it happens.
I love his fights though, his speed literally hypnotized his opponents.
Wish he never moved up to HW though, kinda went downhill for a while after that. Any fighter will tell you moving your weight like that really tears the body down.
I am hoping he beats Cowhockey. Never count Roy out!
