He won his middleweight 'title' beating lightmiddle Pyatt.
He won his supermiddle 'title' beating a weight drained, shop worn Eubank.
He then looked dire against the likes of Brown/Carr/Seillier.
The WBO 'title' he held had no credibility whatsoever in the US.
A fight with Jones wouldn't have drawn breath in the States as it would have (rightly) been regarded as a mismatch.
Jones wouldn't fight outside of US.
That's why it didn't happen.
So...what part of that doesn't agree with what I said? Since I said the fight didn't happen because nobody in America cared about Collins and Jones could ignore him due to lack of public and network interest.
