I wouldnt say anybody is unbeatable. He was still human. But it was unlikely that somebody would have beat him during that time.

Legend.
It isn't neccessary for a fighter to prove he's unbeatable by sticking out his chin to allow a free punch. We should assume that at least ONE TIME in his dazzling prime he got a wallop on the chin, and as far as we all know, he survived it with no bother. The Tarver punch was when Jones was long past his prime, although still a top fighter, so it is not an example to be quoted.

My own opinion is that, since we can only pass judgement on the evidence we actually have, including factual events, and since we can't legitimately speculate on "maybe" "perhaps", "everybody gets old" etc. we must come to the conclusion that,

"in his prime he was unbeatable", because that's exactly what happened.

And don't bring up that ridiculous DQ.

Nunn never looked comfortable when pressured imo( Barkley), although in his prime he was able to pick off on the way in (Roldan) because he had better reflexes etc.
Yes but in his prime he would've handled Rochigianni - if he were a full fledged LHW.

I think Jones was alevel above Leonard. Leonard could be pressured and tagged, Jones couldn't.

Roy Jones beat a lot of good fighters. His win against Toney deserves recognition, but it's obvious Toney was not at his best. His win against Ruiz deserves the same, then again Toney did the same thing injured and out of shape.

Still, unbeatable? He never dominated any great fighters to make him look unbeatable. He dominated a weight drained Toney who I wouldn't consider "great" at the time.

Bat, Vinnie P. was a great fighter, no doubt, Gatti-like, but was really outgunned by Jones, I think he had come up from a Junior lightweight title, or thereabouts. Too small, about
5'6-7", really only a little guy.
