Larry Holmes. Even though on my scorecard the Norton fight and the Witherspoon fight were draws.

It is common sense Roy didn't fight the vast majority of the big punchers from his era.

Jackson
Nunn
Benn
Eubank
Mccellan
Daruiz

come on... Roy avoided at least as much as Floyd did if not more.
Yea I do remember wanting to see Roy Jones vs The G man but I think he beats that whole list except Gerald Mccellan to much power

Holmes and it ain't even close. Sheeid Holmes got robbed against Spinks twice WITH a bad hand. And he NEVER cherry picked.

I picked Floyd because he was the smallest guy in the ring the majority of the time. Holmes was so dominate physically against most if not all his opponents. Don King did a good job marketing him as the biggest blackest man on the planet.

I voted for Floyd. It's close but Floyd faced slightly better opponents overall and he clearly won all his fights except the Castillo fight while Holmes had some close wins that could have gone the other way.

He was actually 89-0-1-77 before he had the misfortune of running into Frankie Randall, but we must also understand how many Tijuana cab drivers that were part of Julio's record as well.
