Roy Jones Junior: Too late to be considered great?




One of the current talking points of the sport is that of WBC, IBF, IBO and WBA light-heavyweight Roy Jones Junior's opponents. At age 33 the eccentric three-division champion from Florida is winding down his career and the debate is heating up as to where Jones' career accomplishments rank as compared to those of Ali, Louis, Robinson and Duran.

In the latest instalment of In This Corner Paul Upham argues that the American fighter's five major world titles in three different weight categories are credentials enough to allow Jones to rank alongside the very best fighters of all time. Then, Anthony Evans counters that Jones has failed to meet a sufficient amount of top-flight challengers for his claim to greatness to be unquestioned. After reading both sides of the articles, readers are invited to email in their judgements.
