What was Roy Jones. SR like as a fighter ?Did he have JR's speed, did he use the same style ? I would love to see some of his fight with Hagler if anyone has it

Very interesting that Roy Jones's dad was stopped by Marvin Hagler!

In the book "Dark Trade" I believe it is stated that the Roy Jones that Hagler fought wasn't Roy Jones Sr. That's probably where you read it from. It was him though.

good links Great A... yet i am sure i read awhile back on "The confidential" site that it was not Roy Sr. and that over the last few years he has started to claim it was him.. the picture you posted certainly bears a strong resemblance

Is Dark Trade a good read?
