    B Milanders 2 years ago Two grandmasters of their craft interlocked in battle... it's art. I laugh at any of the comments that criticise either athlete. You know nothing, STFU.

    Deagledrumzz 2 years ago Very good comment. Even at this point in their young careesr both men were savvy faaar beyond their years. Hopkins always knew had to sap the strength of a fighter always looking to drown them in latter rounds. Roy would have none of that, his own incredible speed and power had the answers to Hopkins. Gil Clancy made some interesting points in his commentary, stating how do you prepare for a fighter like Jones? Well simply put, next to impossible to prepare for a prime young Roy Jones ,because no one apart from Leonard or Camacho could prepare you for that speed ,not to mention those punches that come in angles you cannot prepare for. These two greats had everything a fighter could want , Hopkins was a scientist in the ring ,sucking the life out of every opponent, but Jones was a speed demon with power.

    Mark Ant 2 years ago +B Milanders I don`t think at this stage Hopkins was a grand master yet. Was Jones quicker at middleweight?
