Floyd Mayweather vs. Roy Jones - CompuBox Head To Head Stats

By CompuBox

In the lead up to his farewell fight tonight, former four division world champion Roy Jones Jr. compared his skills to those of five division world champion Floyd Mayweather and said he, Jones, was the more accomplished fighter. 

In an effort to compare the two future Hall of Famers from a statistical stand point, CompuBox crunched data from the primes of both fighters (Jones from 1994 through 2002 - 19 fights and Mayweather from 1998 through 2007 - 22 fights) and compiled the following report.

Mayweather amassed a +23.8 plus/minus rating (due to better defensive numbers), while Jones' was +19.8. Both threw and landed similar amounts of total punches.

Jones was busier with his power punches and landed 56.1% to Mayweather's 52.4%. Mayweather opponents landed just 22.5% of their total punches and just 26.4% of their power shots, compared to 27.9%/35.2% for Jones opponents.

Mayweather landed 6.7 jabs per round (37.2%) to 28% (3.7 per round) for Jones, who used his jab sparingly, averaging 13.2 per round- 10 fewer than the CompuBox avg.

Jones was involved in three of the top ten Greatest Title Fight Plus/Minus beat downs in CompuBox history: +41 vs. Reggie Johnson; +40 vs. Richard Hall and +36 vs. Julio Gonzalez.

Mayweather was involved in two of the top ten Greatest Title Fight Plus/Minus beat downs in CompuBox history: +47 vs. Marquez & +40 vs. Gatti. Floyd's +47 vs. Marquez is the all time title fight plus/minus beat down.

[QUOTE=steven_z;18476894]I see, your argument was about the fights after the age of 30. Now, if we're comparing Loma and Mayweather up to 29: I think you'd agree that Mayweather had only 1 high quality fight by that age: Corrales and…

[QUOTE=Bronx2245;18476691]Loma is 29, and is 10-1. By the time Mayweather was 29, he had already become Super Featherweight Champion, Lightweight Champion, Super Lightweight, and Welterweight Champion! By age 29, he had already beat Diego Corrales, Castillo x 2, Gatti and…

[QUOTE=steven_z;18476611]I rate Loma-Rigo higher than any of those fights (not in terms of money, but in boxing quality), but Loma-Walters, Loma-GRJ and Loma-Martinez somewhere on the same level.[/QUOTE]Loma vs. Rigo would've been on that level, had it been @ 126!…
