Default Was Roy Jones a coward for not defending his title against Lennox Lewis?

I mean after all, Jones did win a heavyweight title right? He moved up in weight, beat John Ruiz, then, like the coward he is, went back down in weight, rather than fight Lennox Lewis. What a coward! That's an obvious duck, much like pacquiao who clearly is ducking MW Martinez.

Pac should have told us from the start that he just wanted the fight to make history. At least RJJR told us that....

Also, cmon, jumping from cruiserweight to heavyweight is a bigger jump than welterweight to LMW

If he can't fight a HW champ, he shouldn't be called a hw champ.


Roy was a coward and an opportunistic cherrypicker.

By your logic, we can't consider him a real hw champion because he's an obvious fraud.

Ruiz...Margarito


Lots of difference in how Jones and Manny got the belts.

But I see your point...Jones wasn't really the HW champ and Manny isn't really a champ at 154 either.
