Speed isn't everything. I could show you many fights where the slower fighter won (George Foreman's whole record, basically). Besides, we don't know how fast or powerful Jones would have been without the aid of steriods.

175? No way, there are guys that would spark him. I wouldn't be comfortable betting on anyone against him at 160- 168 though but it doesn't mean I don't think some fighters (for example Hagler) have a chance.

No. Hagler and Monzon still would've gotten to him.

I know MW is a GREAT division with so much history, but against prime RJJ - who would catch him to beat him, or KO him. I just cant see it. Even GOAT SRR would struggle to catch that RJJ.

Roy fought about 15 pro bouts as a Middle. His best win was probably against Castro who was a veteran fighter on the fade! Roy was fast and on the move as a Middle but he developed into a good fighter after he grew out of the class! He fought light hitters and no one who sustain any pressure. His best weight was 168 to 175!! At 160 I doubt he'd fair well against Hagler, although Hagler would have promblems with Roys speed!
If your going to look at Roy as a Middle you need to remember he was a "green" fighter he wasn't the thinker that he developed into passed the middleweight limit. Ray.

Roy's power and speed carried to 175 and he was just as dominant so what is the difference?

You think Castro is a better win than Hopkins? Also the whole Roy was "green" at 160 is simply narrative. Roy was the same dominant fighter at 160 as he was his entire career.

The difference is he'd be facing harder hitters. I'm far more confident with his chin at MW, SMW than i am at Light heavy.
