He was a mediocrity like so many Barry Hearn & the WBO made 'champion' in the 90's
Jones would have embarrassed him, peak Eubank & Benn would have beaten him, as would Barkley, Nunn, McClellan, Toney.
Eubank and Benn, both got beaten twice each, by Collins, they were so overrated (mainly in England) that it's laughable. I love the excuse that they were both shot because neither of them could beat him, and he was a pretty basic brawler. The Jones/Collins, Jones/Calzaghe etc fights should have happened back in the 90's, it'll prove **** all now.
Jones was the boss in his day, though he was juicing like ****, throughout his prime, without cheating, how good would he even have been then?...he could have been getting KO'd all the time, even back then.
