Legendary boxing matches – Legendary boxers: Superman

Author: Zizi

There are matches, that will never be forgotten, and there are boxing icons, who are going to stay with us for eternity.

There are talented boxers all around the world and there are special ones as well. This time, I am going to talk about a fighter, whose speed, technical skills and timing were almost magical. Not to mention the fact that he was the first and only professional boxer, who started his career as light middleweight and later he could reach the heavyweight title as well. Roy Jones Jr was one of the bests of his generation, and a real nightmare for his opponents.

Sadly, there was a tragedy in his family in the recent days, but now, here are three interesting facts about the former multiple world champion:

1. During the 90’s, he was honored “the Fighter of the Decade” by the Boxing Writers Association of America.

2. Besides his boxing career, he has appeared in several films, TV shows (my personal favorite was his appearance at one of the Marriage with children episodes).

3. He is a successful trainer and commentator as well.
