i admit, it's changed recently. and justifiably. jones was amazing at his best and should be favoured againt many on here. he didn't dominate a great era in any weight class, had no true rivals but rarely ever lost rounds against ANYONE including his top 10 opposition. that merits a solid placement.
given that he destroyed two of the best of his era and legitimate greats in hopkins and toney without losing more than a handful of rounds, he should command some respect.
however, it shouldn't go past what we've seen on film and he's demonstrated in real life. jones was not perfect and fighters like spinks, charles and even conn should be favoured against him
