Jones comes out very fast to a big lead. but his legs are a bit heavier at 175. Charles comes on late and punishes the tiring Jones. Ezzard's stong finish has Roy in trouble. Charles late round TKO or Decision win.

is it just my iPhone or does the board have a new colour scheme? It's jarring and uncalled for (maybe because I'm such a mong)

Ezzard seemed to have answers for those herky-jerky athletic bangers and proved against the much more experienced Charley Burley. Twice. Burley was smaller but that never stopped him before. Ezzard's precision and technically superior style would draw a bead on Jones and stop him.

What about it? Charles has proved he can stand up to guys that hit as hard or harder than Roy. Not so vice versa.

Charles' timing, technical brilliance and ability to come back into fights would shine through here.

Jones would have his moments but Charles has everything needed to clsoe the show. Jones would be way out of his comfort zone.

Charles stops him in 8. Different class of fighter.

Nobody was a different class of fighter in a boxing ring. Jones had gifts other great, great fighters could only dream of. That does not mean he would beat Charles at LHW. But the is no "class" gap. None at all.

On topic, I really fancied Charles to win this tournament but if there's one guy I can see beating him stylistically it's Jones. Jones speed Vs Charles impeccable timing make it a really hard fight to decipher.

Jones wins the first 3 rounds with his usual mixture of speed and akwardness, making it tough for Charles to get off his shots and keeping his distance well. Rounds 4-9 are pretty close, Jones wants to get invloved but has to be respectful of Charles, and in the 10th this proves to be true as Charles times Jones perfectly and drops him.

RJJ makes it through the round and gets his legs back in the 11th, winning the round despite almost being caught hard again. Jones manages to keep away from Charles for the remainder of the fight dropping rounds in the meantime.

Jones squeezes out a razor thin majority decision.

I just feel that ability is just speculation until tested. So without accomplishment there is a huge question mark next to ability.

As for the gifts Jones had I believe that much of that was down to modern science.

Thats an odd thing to say, a guy starting at 154lbs, and winnng titles at 160,168,175 and HW.As well as beating two ATGs, a number of guys who could make the HOF and 10+ world title holders.

Doesn't have the accompishments to show his ability ?

Jones was a speed demon from a young age, and he always hit very hard. Do explain your position.

I guessed that much, hence my comment.

Jones did not sudenly develop and become much bigger nor did he suddenly become much faster. His muscle size and structure has been similiar throughout his carrer.

I couldn't stay at the sidelines and respect myself. I came into this thread to vocalize my support for Axl_Nose for uncovering the corruption that, as it has in boxing, has permeated through every pore of this message board. His insightful investigation has exposed fleaman for the Don King surrogate that he is, subtly manipulating seemingly coincidental events, and Gpater as his Richard Steele, his henchman, the Robin to his Batman.

I and everybody else here owes a debt of gratitude to Axl_Nose and I suggest we add to his name the custom title of 'Sherlock Holmes' immediately.
