For me, its hopkins. He dominated the middle weight class. He never lost to Jermaine IMO and probably in a lot of others as well. Roy Jones put up a historic legacy by being the second man to go from middleweight to Heavyweight champ, but after the Tarver knockout he was never the same and it brought him down to early.

I'd have to go with Jones. He beat Hopkins when both were in their prime and was for a long while considered the top p4p boxer.

rjj WAS MA FAVORITE AND STILL IS BUT AFTER THE DOMINATION HE WAS PUTTING ON CEMENTING HIMSELF AS OF OF THE BEST FIGHTERS EVER THE TARVER KNOCKED HIM OF THE TOP EVEN THOU HE IS IN THE TOP 50 OF ALL TIME AND IF HE CAN WIN AGAINST JEFF LACY HE CAN POSSIBLY RESURRECT IT BUT HOPKINS STILL WINING AND NO BIG LOSSES TO HIM HE IS BETTER

Wrong, B hop wasn't even close to his prime yet. He was green in terms of boxing...he was in prison while Roy was being polished into a great fighter. B-Hop's prime moment came when he destroyed Tito...

As far as boxing knowledge and such, yeah he maybe was a little green, but in terms of physical peak he was pretty close to it.

I've gotta go with B-HOP as well for the same reason that JETSFOREVER said & for the fact that ROY JONES jr is a shell of his former self now/days & a complete joke of a fighter.
