Below is a recent Roy Jones compilation that was created by Gorilla Productions. GP consistently puts together the best boxing videos on Youtube (please note the music is filled with foul language however).
Whether you are a Roy Jones fan or not, it is impossible to dismiss his tremendous athletic ability and talent. Many younger boxing fans do not realize how talented Roy was in his prime. They only remember the more recent version which was really just a shell of his former self.
As a youngster, I vividly remember watching Roy Jones in 1988 as an amateur on the US Olympic team. It was that year’s Olympics that sparked my passion for the sport of boxing. I recorded all of the fights and still have the old VHS tapes. Roy Jones Jr. was the one fighter who stood out to me.
Years later, I was fortunate to visit Royâ€™s father in Pensacola where he was still training amateur fighters in his driveway.Â It was the same driveway that Roy trained on as a youngster.Â It was an amazing experience to talk boxing with Roy Sr. while watching him train his fighters.
Royâ€™s father has developed 4 world champions from scratch (meaning these fighters started with him). Many trainers today gain credit for working with fighters who are already tremendous athletes. Roy Sr. is the opposite.Â He has molded multiple world champions at a small home based gym in Pensacola.Â His knowledge is undeniable.
Roy Jones Jr. is perhaps the greatest example of that…
