Fabulous Frank was a huge super middleweight
with solid wins over a still useful Merqui Sosa, an
underrated Michael Nunn, and had avenged his only defeat
with an electrifying knockout over Tim Littles. If
Jones had wanted to avoid anybody at 168 pounds during
his tenure as IBF champ it would have been Liles, not
Calzaghe.
Trainer and former world title challenger John Scully
commented, If there was anyone in the game who I think
Roy maybe wasn't in so much of a big hurry to fight,
from what I have gathered over time, it would be Frankie
Liles and Michael Nunn. They were tall southpaws with
good range and difficult styles. Roy knew Frankie very
well from the amateurs and, as a matter of fact, Frankie
was the only guy who I ever saw give Roy a standing
eight count (at the 1988 U.S. Championships). Roy would
have fought him, I believe, but he wouldn't have been
first on his list.
