Was he ever in with someone as heavy handed and bullish as Marciano though? Of course not. I accept that there is an intangible here (As alwyas there are many in fact) but I just don't see Jones ever winning this type of fight. I would go so far as to say it is impossible for Jones to stay out of serious trouble for fifteen rounds, and if he gets into trouble v Rocky, he'd need luck, more heart than he has previously exhibited and all those lovely skills to escape.
And if he manages it, there's still the next round.
