Doug Jones was a good fighter , not a clubfighter , whom was yet unstopped by d time he fought Ali . However Ali failed 2 beat him despite being much bigger .

Doug Jones was not a heavyweight contender, he was supposed to be an easy win/test for Ali.
Because of his (lack of) size , but he was a quality fighter , d best opponent up 2 that point 4d then 17-0 Ali .

He lost 3 , even that on paper , and had a paper draw in Germany against a German fighter . 1 of them 3 out of 6 paper losses was a very close decision loss that Jones later (4 months later in that same year and still prior 2 his fight against Ali) avenged by KO in 1 of his next 2 wins .
