I thought about something similar. Make him slip to his right by feinting a jab, then hook off it. It sounds easy but you'll have to keep in mind he's a terrific counter puncher. Part of the reason is the stance allows you to stay close. Everyone wants to smother him with punches, just like they wanted to smother Jones Jr. A few counter punches take that desire away quickly.
I spar in 18 oz gloves and I'm not sure what caused it; but when I was sparring our Super Heavy he was pounding my left shoulder and it made it very hard for me to jab.

Perhaps him being a super heavy had something to do with it. Seriously I block punches with my shoulder on purpose. If my opponent decides to "wear me down" by hitting my shoulder, he's doing exactly what I want. That's the reason my face is behind that shoulder in the first place. I never noticed any wear down at all from being hit on the shoulder.

It's like doing a chin test between my shoulder and my opponents head. I'm taking my chances on that one.
