ROY JONES JR.
He's the most complete fighter of this era, gifted with speed, power and charisma. He has dominated three divisions and generally toyed with the competition. If he feels somebody deserves a whipping ( Montell Griffin), he delivers one, but if he feels somebody deserves mercy ( Vinny Pazienza), he delivers that. Even Jones's second sport, hoops, is a more manly one than De La Hoya's, golf.
OSCAR DE LA HOYA
At 5'11" and a frighteningly strong 147 pounds, he's built like the original pound-for-pound king, Ray Robinson. On the attack, especially with his withering left hook, De La Hoya looks pretty Sugary too. Forget the teen-idol image; the Golden Boy is a stone killer in the ring. His sheer firepower, superb conditioning and his passion for the game—something Jones lacks—should make for a perennial Oscar winner.
