Toney wasn't out of shape until week's after RJJ whooped his butt. FYI RJJ hand basically one hand vs BHop, it has been well documented. So since your giving Toney excuses than you have to accept RJJ's vs BHop which he still won. As for discrediting Floyd's resume I agree. Also RJJ was in an era that didn't have much fighters to challenge him. Like Wlad but trying to discredit what they accomplished because of the lack of talent in their era is crazy. RJJ was the P4P king for almost a decade.
I agree and while Floyd's resume is good to great. We can't say he had a dominating win over an All time great like Toney, can we? Beating easily two of the all time greats in their prime. Say what you say about Roy and his lack of competition. He made Bhop and JT look terrible. Both BHop and JT have beaten athletic fighters but Roy was just too smart for both of them.
