I'm sorry but G man has to be one of the most overated fighters of all time! There is no way of knowing how his career would have turned out, for all we know jones could have gone out and sparked him in a couple rounds or vice versa! Tommy was a proven elite world champion, plus we got to factor in that these two guys knew and sparred with each other on numerous occassions and from the stories from the kronk tommy was always a top boy in the gym! Tommy's "glass jaw" is so overated its laughable for all his fights he was never knocked out! Any time he was stopped it was on his feet, he always got back up!! I'm taking tommy by UD or late stoppage in this one, he's just a class above! A truly great fighter

As in others, G-Man by late KO, provided Tommy doesn't put him out, courtesy of a right.

Tommy was stopped on his feet against Hagler?

Yeah.

He didn't know where he was and was gone, but he was indeed on his feet.

G-man fell in love with the power of KOing people and was not smart enough to realise what it was doing to his health. G-man's chin was granite, and nothing will change my mind. He took a severe amount of punishment against Benn and in a number of previous fights with the knowledge that his power could put any man to sleep. He would definitely eat some leather to get to Hearns, but I believe he would eventually catch Hearns and knock him out, unless they happened to be fighting about the time G-Man was about to fight Benn and then who knows what would happen then.
