The Phenomenal Roy Jones Jr.

Fight fans of the current generation will have missed seeing the prime years of the unquestionable pound for pound King of the 90’s which was Roy Jones Jr.

Having started his professional career as a light-middleweight, Jones became the only Boxer from this weight class to go on and win a heavyweight title during his career.

Every great fighter has a career-defining fight and the bout against James Toney for the IBF super-middleweight title was arguably the fight which brought Jones worldwide attention.

With both fighters entering the ring undefeated, Toney was considered the slight favourite to win the fight which was labelled “The Uncivil War.”

With a mixture of dazzling hand speed and precise punching, Jones was able to confuse a jaded Toney who suffered a flash knockdown in the 3rd round and lost the fight by a landslide margin over 12 rounds.

Roy Jones Jr. would have undoubtedly been a match for any generation of fighter in his prime.

Any doubts? Check out the following highlights of the mesmerizing skills of the former world middleweight, super-middleweight, light-heavyweight, cruiserweight and heavyweight champion.
