Teddy Atlas summed up Roy's Boxing by saying 'he made wrong, right'. Due to his speed and reflexes he was able to get away without having sound fundamentals (like Ali), but once his reflexes slowed down he was in a lot of trouble.
I still think there is much more to Roy's downfall than losing 15 lbs 6 years ago. Since when does losing 15 lbs make a fighter lose his legs, reflexes and his chin?
Do you think the fight with Pac will actually happen? And if it does, who do you think will win?
Strangely enough the best thing that could of happened to Floyd would of been to lose the first fight with Castillo. Then he wouldnt have to worry about his precious '0' anymore and making he would of taken a few more risks. He will go down in history as a very talented boxer witha ok resume.
The same can be said for jones:
In April 2006, when Jones was mulling whether he would fight again, I asked former HBO Sports president Seth Abraham for his thoughts on this enigma wrapped in a riddle.
***8220;His drive was to do things that were of interest to him, but not necessarily to fight the very best middleweights, super middleweights and light heavyweights who were out there,***8221; Abraham responded. ***8220;I think Roy***8217;s legacy in the sport absolutely will suffer because he chose not to do everything he could to make himself as great as he might have been.***8221;
Floyd is a good role model in terms of working hard and doing something constructive with his life. As for the whole 'diva attitude' it leaves a lot to be desired, but im assuming his playing a role to create interest for his fight (like Ali).
