Roy Jones Jr. was Ring Magazine's "Fighter of the Year" in 1994 and was voted the "Fighter of the Decade" in 1999 by the Boxing Writers Association of America. Pound for pound, there is no doubt that Roy Jones Jr. was one of the best boxers in history. He entered professional boxing in 1989 in the middleweight division. In 1993, he won his first IBF title in the middleweight category and has since won numerous fights and titles on his journey through the weight classes. He worked his way up to the heavyweight division in 2003, after years in the light-heavyweight division, and he took the heavyweight title in 2003 against John Ruiz, which to him was the ultimate achievement in boxing.
