Considering what he went on to accomplish, I'd say James Toney is, even though their fight wasn't the best.

Roy Jones Jr. got really, really lucky with James Tunney. Tunney clowned back with Jones jr. and got tagged. At the time James Tunney was a serious fighter, it has to be James Tunney.

Calzaghe got in with jones way too late.

Tarver, got Jones Jr. dehydrated from going up Heavy Weight.

Johnson didn't do much after wards.

Hopkins was still kinda green.

Trinidad....come on man, Tito was way past it, and not even his best weight class.

Is James Toney not tunney. You probably had Gene Tunney on your mind..

And, lets not make excuses on why Jones lost to Tarver. Lets not forget that Jones won the first fight. No excuses on why he got iced in the rematch.
