Default Roy Jones Jr or Mike Tyson

Who was the more dominant fighter?

Mike was destroying guys bigger than himself in the first few rounds and Roy Jones looked like he never lost a single round at all in his prime

Has to be Roy, he was arguably pound for pound number 1 for a decade. Tyson's prime was much shorter.

In terms of longevity, certainly RJJ.

In terms of pure dominance at the height of their careers for me, Tyson was the most dominant fighter of all time at the very peak of his career.

Even at his peak I thought Mike Tyson looked beatable. Never thought that about Roy.

you can't be serious if you think Roy has a chance against Prime Tyson ...

Tyson would knock his panties off in his prime

But I have to agree that I think Roy looked almost otherworldly in his prime ... toying with most of his opponents like they were children ...

Default Roy looked good but...

Tyson's ferocity was unmatched, Roy looked pound for pound to be the best. But Roy's chin was never tested. If it was, I think he would have been found lacking bigtime. And Tyson would have tested it. He had fast hands and could apply real pressure.

Roys chin being untested is a myth, he had been hit plentyyyyy of times including from a guy who outweighed him by 30lbs in his 15 year run at the top.
