However, I do think a lot of that was stupid ass Tarver taking seven rounds off, rather than Jones just outgutting him. It seemed like when Tarver wanted to fight, he did some seriously good work.
this why it looks great for Roy
he was there to be beaten that night
announcers were all over Tarver for that
it wasn't because he was carrying Roy
when Roy let go, he put respect into Tarver
Tarver caught on to the fatigue and attacked toward the end
but Roy turned it around and shut him down in championship rounds
