    Will have a look at this later but know GMan losing against Benn seem to effect the mentality of Roy Jones. Almost fearing the same could happen to him even more than he normally would.

    I could see Jones being knocked out but at that time Roy was untouchable so it would have been highly unlikely.

    At that time, and in his prime, Roy beats them all. He was also considerably bigger than McLennan and Benn.

    That's a rough watch. If I've ever had a love-hate relationship with any fight then that's the one. Was never aware of any close deal to a Jones Jr v McClellan showdown as it was said they were close friends and honestly Jones Jr had little incentive to go after bigger threats because he had a record contract with HBO to dispose of rotating mandatories with little to no hope around 168. Had Gerald emerged victorious over Benn it's clear he was wearing damage probably back to the Julian Jackson I fight and was known to blow up between fights. He wasn't just going up in weight he was going way up in opposition with Jackson and Benn and Roy was yet another cut above. Wouldn't have been shocked to see Roy keep him repositioning and unable to set all fight and scoring a sudden KO midway. If only Gerald had the opportunity for nothing else but to leave the sport whole, damn tragedy that night. It really did leave effects on both Benn and Jones in the aftermath.

    Benn was 5 years older and injured going into that fight...crazy.

    Is there any rule in boxing in regards to how low you can duck/slip when avoiding punches..Benn goes super low.

    Normally it should not be below the belt line otherwise the ref would intervene.

    I remember Pernell Whitaker would also duck his head very low and get told off by the ref.

    Gerald McLellan was scum, lots of bigger tragedies in this sport. Saying that, he probably should have been awarded a KO1 over Benn, who was helped back into the ring and then further helped by the ref.

    Roy Jones Jr. was out of hand with his prime numbers. Gerald McClellan will need a miracle to land a large bomb

    Is this over the alleged dog fighting stuff..jeez..give the guy a break.

    How true are those stories anyway?!

    There have been fighters doing far worse outside the ring than fight dogs..remember, some countries eat them.

    Not justifying any of the above, but come on now.

    Fortunately they can't all be murder cyclones like a Valero but his own trainer and family spoke often about the dog fighting sometimes to the death. Roy was talking about doing felonies with dog and cock fighting too. I think we'd be pretty damn surprised if we delved into any random fighters back story personal life. We all have skeletons.

    I think Jones Jnr knocks him out mid fight. Too fast, too elusive. McClennan didn't have a great record really. 2 losses against journeymen, many shaky resumes on his list and a couple of decent wins. Jones would probably have stopped him in round 6.

    McClellan was damaged by Julian Jackson, so even if he had have somehow beaten Benn, Jones Jr would have finished him off had he fought Roy thereafter.
