He koed 2 time light heavyweight champ Virgil Hill with a BODY SHOT in the 4th round.

He went for a decade without a fight that was even competitive, and when he finally lost it was pretty obvious that he was shot given the quality of some of the opponents in his subsequent losses..
Just to clear that up I didn't mean any disrespect by using two different terms. It just seemed to be better grammar to use two different words. And, I don't disrespect Jones by questioning just how superior he may have been to his peers. I'm just not understanding how all of a sudden Roy was shot when he started losing. Unlike Hopkins and Toney, he didn't seem as though he had the tougher fights.
