I am a Jones fan and think Eubank was an elite fighter, you don't have to crap on what Jones did to get the point across... Anyone that watched Eubank can see he was very good.
Jones badly struggled with Malinga's defense before his dramatic feinting and amateurish leap shot bailed him out (speed and power, no skill)...he also struggled with Thornton's defense when he had him on the ropes (due to Thornton's shoulder injury), hardly any of that 20-shot flurry of punches landed on Thornton; Eubank landed at will on Thornton.
No doubt Eubank was a lot slicker than Jones. But as I admit above, Jones did have speed, power and naturally gifted athletic talent he was born with.
