I'd lean on Whitaker for the more skilled but I think Roy Jones was more gifted. Although Whitaker was obviously very gifted himself.

In terms of accomplishments, I'd say Whitaker by a fair margin.

That's no disrespect to either fighter.

Both are up there with the very best of all time in terms of skills and natural ability.

i think prime for prime, if they were the same weight and they fought, do you think jones could really get pass pernell's defence?

It's close. I don't know. Whitaker was a better technical fighter so I automatically think of him but skill? Jones was a machine offensively. I don't know.

I can't really say because obviously their strength, size and speed wouldn't be the same at other and unrealistic weight's so I find it impossible to make those kind of comparisons.
