Ex-champ Tony Bellew has tipped his hat to the greatest of all time in the ring:
"Roy Jones Jr., hands down, the best to ever lace up. Had he hung up his gloves post-John Ruiz, he'd be the unrivaled GOAT. His game was on another level—speed and strikes like a lightning bolt.
Roy was an unstoppable force, a real-life ring warrior in his heyday. What he pulled off was nothing short of spectacular. His punches? Like thunder with no warning," Bellew penned with admiration.
Roy Jones Jr.'s crowning moment came in March 2003, clinching the WBA heavyweight title and leaving the judges in no doubt.
