Agreed. Jones would either be crushed or run all night while eating jabs.

Foster was definitely top ten material. I don't see him going past Tunney, Loughran, Ezz, Archie or Conn though.

I like Harold Johnson's chances against Bob too. Johnson was good at picking jabs, had a beautiful one himself, plus a good right that he rarely missed in an opening. I wouldn't count Bob out though. Harold could be stopped by a good one (like against Oakland Billy Smith, for example) and Foster had plenty of good ones.

Spinks slickness could cause big trouble for Bob but I don't know if I'd necessarily favor him.

It'd be interesting to see how Bob would do against Tommy Gibbons. Gibbons could be incredibly frustrating, but he prefered to neutralize the guy in close. I don't know if he could get by Foster's long and and accurate jab.
