    Cool vid, not sure we will ever see the likes of him again.

    I think in his prime he would have beaten any fighter who ever lived in his weight classes.

    Who could possibly hang with that?

    It's a shame in a way that he didn't retire after the Ruiz fight because he would easily have gone down in history then as one of the top 5 or 6 ever imo.

    Thanks to his ko losses though he's possibly not in most's top 10....

    You mean this guy?

    I might agree, or else I might not have made this video.

    Don't know why I am accused of hatting black fighters when some of the best fighters on my list of greats are black

    It actually looks better on youtube because it is 580 x 360 and not small like I am forced to post it here.

    Some one suggested a video and they wanted me to add Roy singing RUN D MC so, you will see Roy does sing in the end

    Roy was awesome.

    He is one guy that i can't deny, that would of beaten Bernard decisively had they met in their primes.

    Great vid. Blinding reflexes big, small, heavy, built, lanky, they all come crashing down!

    Although I assumed this was a Pele Reid thread when I opened it I have to say Roy was one of the most talented fighters ever yes - if talking talent alone. I don't think he did enough with it when at his peak to be an all time great.

    In my all time greats list he just scraped into the top 20 if I remember (did it a few months ago on another thread)

    ...I think he would have had some trouble in his weight classes 160-175 from some other all-time greats, but yes RJJ is definently a great fighter and was great to watch.

    He's a great fighter, my favorite ever, but my other favorite beats him p4p anyday of the week.

    Roy is slighly faster than Mayweather p4p, but Floyd is awkward to fight, and after watching Montell Griffin stylistically give Roy fits, Floyd would pick him apart because Roy never established a real jab(except against RUiz and Pazienza, but that jab wouldn't have been useful against Floyd).

    He got too sloppy because of his technique, and he stopped using footwork, and allowed guys to hit him on the ropes(despite blocking 95% of thes shots at least partially).
