In this recent post, I lamented the decline of some greats in sports, including Roy Jones, Jr. Not that long ago, he was the “pound for pound” king, someone that was the considered the best in the sport of boxing. Jones, made his opponents look silly, and even past champions look like amateurs, such were his skills, timing, and speed. Take a look at this great highlight video [some content may be offensive].
In those days, Jones was always thinking and reacting at least a step ahead of his opponents. Those days are clearly gone. But it was a fun ride.
