Who should rank higher on a ATG list and who should be remembered as the greater fighter.

Roy Jones is the far greater fighter.

Close. Not a bad choice either way. I'll go with Jack to give him some support as I doubt many others will.

I thought about that but considered it unfair to Jones. I agree its close, but I think Jones edges him by a few spots. I wouldn't argue a call for Dempsey though.

Roy Jones Jr. and it's not even close. With all due respect, Dempsey is one of the most overrated boxers ever. Roy takes this one easily.

If that's the case then your favorite fighter is one of the most guilty of all of overrating Dempsey.

This is more true about Jones. Dempsey is mainly only over rated as a HW. p4p is a different story.

No doubt about it. :)
Mike's entitled to his opinion, as is everyone. Doesn't mean I have to agree with him just because he's my favorite fighter.
I just find nothing special of Dempsey or his resume, other than his punching power. He's the most telegraphic and clumsy-fighting fighter I've seen. Horrible footwork, movement, punching, etc. Only his power is rated highly by me. That's just how I see it. And although I don't think Roy Jones is an A+ himself, I rate him higher than Jack, both in terms of ability and resume. Tyson, you, and Dempsey fans are allowed to agree or disagree. Just my opinion which I think many might share, as the poll reflects.

Please explain how Roy is over rated in his prime? Who could have beat him at the time that was currently active, and who in history would have beat him?

I don't make lists but if I did Roy Jones would be very very high on it.
