To answer both of your comments, I was in the gym with Jackson down in Miami. Noone felt he had a chance. He simply wasnt that good, in the gym either. You guys both know undefeated doesnt mean jack. Its when you start stepping up in class do you prove your worth, and Jackson was not very good but aligned tightly with Don King. You only have to look at his pitiful record up to the Ruddock fight and after to see proof of that. Anyone with a pulse and winning record easily beat him.
