"A fighter in history is judged by what he did in his prime, like most athletes and most successful anythings. Was his last novel or album not so good? So what. What did he do 10 or 20 years ago? No one believes, in the big picture of things, that Rocky Marciano is better than Joe Louis because Marciano knocked him out. Roy Jones, Jr. was one of the best of his time, and that, to me, is the best you can be." - Larry Merchant
