Roy Jones Jr. Says He’d Beat Floyd Mayweather

Boxing

Roy Jones Jr. says with his style he would beat Floyd Mayweather, but sees Manny Pacquiao as a different animal, and as a result he would encounter some problems against the Filipino congressman.

Mayweather (42-0-26 KOs) possesses a ministry of defense style which hardly gets breached, he also incorporates a Philly shell shoulder roll, and to boot, has great counterpunching prowess.

The closest the five-division titlist has come to being knocked of his pedestal was when he was rocked by Shane Mosley in the second round of a non-title bout.

Conversely, Pacquiao (54-3-2-38 KOs) is primarily an offensive fighter with a relentless aggressive style, which wears down his opponents. In addition, he owns a killer left-hook.

That said, Pacquiao has suffered stoppage losses on three occasions.

Both fighters are currently in negotiations regarding their projected superfight which has and is still being beset a number of stumbling blocks, most namely the pay-per-view revenue that Mayweather wants the entirety of, whilst Pacquiao is stalling for a 70/30 split of the aforesaid television revenue.

However, before either fighter can give the fans the most anticipated clash in boxing history, “Money” has business to attend to when he vies for Miguel Cotto’s WBA super welterweight title on Cinco de Mayo.

Meanwhile, “Pac-Man” is scheduled to defend his WBO welterweight crown against Timothy Bradley on June 9.

Jones Jr. (55-8-40 KOs), is a four-division world champion—winning titles at middleweight, super middleweight, light heavyweight and heavyweight divisions. Thus far the cruiser weight crown has eluded him.
