Roy has it over Nino ,too fast and slick ,Benvenuti was a good boxer and could hit ,but Jones is superior in every department imo.Luis Rodriguez was beating Benvenuti handily till he walked into a shot ,and he did not possess Jones' speed or power.
Jones takes it possibly by late stoppage.

Jones for me, stronger, faster by a lot, boxes and outspeeds his man to a decision.

Jones uses his speed and reflexes to safely box his way to a decision.


With the luck of the draw will can go far in this tournament. With a lot of results like that. The man was a BEAST back in the day. What got me into boxing in the first place!

Somebody mentioned that Rodriguez was winning until-----that is exactly the problem with picking this one. I can see Jones walking into one somewhere along the line.

Nino by surprise ko.

I know. Everyone has a right to go out on a limb and saw it off once in a while.

Roy's speed is ultimately too much for Nino. Jones by UD.

Jones by late KO

He was a monster puncher at MW, people tend to forget that and look at him as the more caughtious 175lb version

Jones wins handily by UD. Jones' power and speed make Benvenuti hesitant through most of the bout. One sided bout as Benvenuti would choose not to press Jones, and loses wide decision.

Jones would out-box him, similar to how he did a young Hopkins in their fight. I think he'd probably land more convincingly on Nino though, perhaps hurting him down the stretch.

Roy UD. Nino can't handle Roy's speed.

Jones Jr wins a UD with his sheer speed, Nino cant keep up and is befuddled as Roy leaps in and out.

Perhpas the worst fighter Nino could have got

Jones mid-round KO after a domination, the speed, slickness, timing, movement and the power he had at this weight would see Benevenuti dominated and destroyed.

Roy would handily out-box Nino, but I strongly doubt he'd be stopping him, especially early. Far inferior fighters gave him more difficult fights at every weight he fought at, and Roy would probably be more willing to box than try to bomb Nino out due to the danger involved.
