Default Re: Jones Jr: The round: Demonstration of all of his tools

Let's be fair to DM. He was past his prime when he fought Hall and he did had an easier time with Montell Griffin.

Jones is the most amazing athlete the grace a boxing ring. He's the Lebron James of boxing...a physical marvel that comes along once in a lifetime But despite the amazing gift, he was missing something that would have pushed him up there with the greats like Duran & Leonard.

Greatness is attained through overcoming adversity. He had a partner to tangle with and he never did it. I don't care if Jones could beat DM 10 times over, but the fact that he never did it hurt his legacy. He was also missing solid technical skills and a solid chin.

P4P, I'd take a lot of fighters in their prime over Jones. Jones was just a great athlete, the others have the skills to back it up.
