I'm a massive Jones fan but there were more flaws to him than meets the eye, he faded in and out of fights far too much, he went completely missing in the middle rounds vs Julio and Johnson, seeming tentative and jittery which shows maybe a lacking in focus and concentration in the ring for me. That's compounded my the fact his jab faded far to quickly, his jab is never the same after the early rounds, where it looks deadly, Poison loses his range very quickly I think, his jab stalls falling short in a habitual manner after the first few rounds.

He only fought 4-5 really top quality fighters, it's hard to gauge how good he could have been I think.
Good points there SL, the fight against MkKiney though for me was the ultimate example of how 1 fighter completely superior to another, can lose because his chin just isn't right

Maybe he just wasn't relaxed enough in the ring, which saw him fade?

Have you seen Jones/Evatt? That's another excellent fight, might just be his most exciting encounter although he was past it.
Was he actually ever in a bad fight?
