Default Roy Jones Jr Or Jake Lamotta?

Who do you think should be remembered as the greater fighter and why?

Jones Jr. is clearly the better fighter but LaMotta did more, and will rank higher for most.

i get sick of everyone downplaying Roy Jones' achievements.....so-called historians rank Bob Fitzsimmons so high because he won the middleweight, heavyweight then light-heavyweight crown.....****e Roy did the same thing and gets no love....i don't understand the Roy hate

You do realize that there was only one title in Fitzsimmons day?

To accomplish the same thing, Roy would have at least had to fight Lennox Lewis instead of cherry picking Ruiz.

Lamotta is one of my favorite's but he was not as good or didnt do as much as roy jones, if both fighters would of met in there primes roy beats jake, but lamotta beats the middleweight version of roy who was ibf champion at the weight and was a bit a way from his prime years.
