Over 12 rounds id give roy the edge,over 15 i think Qawi could grind him down and get a late stoppage

I think Jones would have beaten Qawi fairly easily for a decision.The speed would be a factor in this one. I think it's a bad style match up for Qawi.

I got Roy.

Clear UD.

I agree with Jospeh it's a real mad style match up for Qawi.

anyone who felt Roy's speed and accuracy early and kept pressing got K.O.ed.

there was no quit in Qawi and he would have kept coming forward, forcing Jones to open up more.

i would be surprised if that fight would see the 5th round.

Qawi was a tough guy to get to...with his already down-low chin tucked in....and he had an incredible jab for a guy his size. But, Roy would simply flurry and move, flurry and move to a rather easy decision.

This fight could actually stink.

Is Qawi getting counted a little bit to much here? He took a Cruiserweight Holyfield to a SD, and did KO ATG LHW Sadd Muhhamad x2 and beat a bunch of top contenders also.

Completely different style match-ups as well as the fact that Saad Muhammad was nearing the end of his career. Holyfield had only 11 pro fights when he beat Qawi the first time. That was not Holyfield at his best. Qawi was an excellent light heavyweight but facing a prime Roy Jones is a stylistic nightmare for him.

This is just a class difference. Qawi could have a moment or two, but Roy Jones is out of his league. Wide UD.

But what about the trouble Montell Griffin give him with his low crouch style in there 1st fight?

Montell was very awkward, while Qawi is not. Qawi is far superior to Griffin, but doesn't give the strange angles and movement Montell did that first fight. Jones also overlooked Griffin the first time, which he proved in their second fight. No way Jones overlooks an awesome fighter like Qawi!

A 5''5 LHW who fight's from a low crouch to make himself smaller and has a unqiue way of moving his head to different to angles to avoid punchers isn't awkward?

Roy was taking it easy for most of the 1st Griffin fight when he turned it up he put Griffin on his azz

I personally don't think Griffin and Qawi fight anything alike. Qawi is a lot more offensive minded than Griffin which would lead to a lot more opportunities for Jones.

It's unusual, but not awkward. Qawi did everything by the book....very effectively. Griffin did more of the kind of stuff that you have to adapt to as a fight goes on. Jones figured him out by the 9th round of the first fight, and that's why the rematch only went two minutes.

The Qawi of Holyfield I seemed to be an infinite absorber who continuously came forward with great offense. I think he gives Jones more trouble than people realize.

Let's be real.This version of Qawi had a granite chin, and constant aggression.Jones could win this fight, but something tells me as the later rounds come on, he's going to get sloppy, and that when Dwight gets him.He takes Roy out somewhere between the 11th and 13th round.
