Is Roy Jones legendary mainly because he was able to rule from 160-HW?

      LOL @ Roy "ruling" HW.

      There's a reason he picked Ruiz instead of Lewis or even Byrd.

        Fitzs, Mendoza, etc, there's a few MW-HW champions actually. All of them prior to Roy got to weight their MW weight because all prior to Roy are from the era prior to uniform and formalized divisions and even sanctioning bodies.

        Roy fought at HW weighing HW weight. Listen to dude talk about fighting different at different weights....Roy definitely did something like Fitzs, little better imo.

        People say John was ****, fair, folks was ducking him and he's a x2 though.

        Corbett was retired, some other dude who beat Fitzs already had Corbett's belt. Corbett cashed in on his name and Fitzs beat him. Weighing in the 160s. Corbett wasn't exactly the greatest win either.

        What my point is, is if you see Fitzs as simply lucky, then I understand you seeing RJJ similarly, but if you call Fitzs an ATG but not Roy I'm a bit confused. Roy did it, better imo.

            whenever a fighter has a full title at any weightclass he is said to be the "Ibf ruler/ Wbc ruler etc." doesn't mean he was undisputed ruler

                RJJ is a legend because he looked like a damn video game when he fought. During his prime.

                  haha knew from the posting you were from here. proper spelling of craic.

                  Jones doing things like the hands behind the back and being very flashy and good for highlight reels helped him for young me, to cement him in my mind.

                    This feels like it should be on the boxing history thread.

                      Facing and beating John Ruiz at heavyweight is a bigger challenge, than Canelo Alvarez facing Ilunga makabu.

                      John Ruiz was a better heavyweight, then Ilunga Makabu is a cruiser weight.

                      Ruiz was a solid legitimate World Champion. Who was not going to disappear, soon as he was hit.

                      I am very dubious of the Alvarez vs Makabu match up.
