Kate bending over :luvbed: - jose830 
Default If Roy Jones Jr Retired after the Ruiz Fight, would he be considered top 10, top 5?

Or even Higher in most peoples minds? where would u rate him had he hung it up specifically after that Fight?

Roy Jones career after that fight really has no impact on my opinion of his ranking. What keeps him out of the top 5 - 10 was the quality of his opposition way before the Ruiz fight even took place.

But he's arguably one of the greatest talents the sport as ever seen.

No. He could never have been Top 10 all-time in my opinion, his era wasn't strong enough to get that high. He still would have been Top 50 though, and I have him Top 40-50 right now.

Haven't followed the sport thoroughly enough to know where to rate him, but I can tell you I don't think any less of him now. Never understood the whole "he's diminishing his legacy" couldn't disagree more with that.

probabaly. He certainty wouldn't lose any fantasy fights to tarver by knockout. Anyone who argued that would be stoned off the board

The overrating would be worse, but he would be correctly ranked in any serious discussions, like he is now.

Going back down and beating Tarver was extremely important to his legacy, and makes a greater case for a higher ranking than if he had retired after Ruiz.

I personally think it's impossible to diminish your legacy. If Roy Jones had lost seven straight one round KOs to bums on the street, it wouldn't change what he had already done.
