Default Colin Jones v Antonio Margarito

Colin Jones v Antonio Margarito I think this would be real war Jones is as tough as they come with a great punch Margarito soaks up the punishment and is the more skilled.My pick would be Jones but I am biased and was a big fan of his.

An absolute war whilst it lasts, but Jones' left hook is far more brutal than Cotto's.

Jones KO 11

So was i. Never felt as sorry for a guy in the ring as much as when the DR advised the ref to stop his fight with Curry. Amazingly retired at 25!

MArgarito was certainly not more skilled than Jones.He mostly just marches straight in winging telegraphed clubbing hooks.

Jones was a one-dimensional, slow paced plodder that struggled to put punches together against anyone giving him a lot of movement, but he was also mostly technically sound with a very good heavy jab, dangerous offensive arsenal and nice quartey-esque high guard.He was no great talent by any means, but as a pure puncher, most likely on a similar level to someone like Galaxy.No doubt could have had a good reign against that kind of comp.

I'd say strength would be Margo's clear advantage, but not to the extent where i wouldn't expect him to get brutally knocked out in a nice slugfest.

JOnes and McCrory were nothing special in the gand scheme of things and Milt was very overrated when he was champ, but i tend to think they would have done really well against most of the non-great Welter\jr welter champs of recent years.

I noticed there are a few early JOnes knockouts on youtube if anyone wants to check them out.

Thanks for the input

If my memory is correct Ring magazine rated Jones as the best WW of the eighties not to win a title.I would love to of seen him about today him v Cotto would be an absolute war Jones Clottey would be good too.

Again Nostalga is taking over your better sense of judgement here. I remember jones and he was one tough SOB and had skills,but he would have been busted up buy Margarito. Jones would have taken an early lead but buy the mid rounds Margo would have started to put a major hurting on him and hed stop him in 10 bloody rounds,with most of it coming from Colin.

The Caution in picking Jones is that their was a suggestion that Colin did not like it to the body, this arose From Kirk Laing Hurting Colin to the body, If this suspicion is accurate than Margarito is the Last person you want to be in with as Cintron found out, But if Colin has no particular weakness to the Body than i think he would be the sound Pick - Antonio, against Class quite often had to take a licking, keep on Ticking, and Grind his man Down, sometimes his opponents spirits would be crushed, this would not happen with Jones the welsh Dragon ! you can not walk through his shots when he open up, plus Jones will not Wilt mentally, If Colin can hit you flush then its YOU who have Problems !

Subject to No problem to the Jones Body, (and of course no Cestus in Antonios Gloves !) Then Jones is the Confident Pick

( Colin also had a Spiteful Jab which is often overlooked by the Focus usually being on Colins Big fight Termination Punches !)

Agreed.

I don't see a clear winner in this one. Jones has the bigger punch, but Margo has the higher workrate. Other than that, they both were very hittable and had limited skills.

Maybe they just think Jones is better?.There wasn't much to get nostalgic about the early eighties was there?.

The doctor actually pulled the cut apart! Jones was a great puncher and his one punch ko's were great. I thought he won both McCrory fights and looked forward to seeing a nice long career (just like i did with McGuigan) unfortunately it didn't happen.

Jones was a true puncher with patience. Technically he was good so he presented problems for boxers, Laing, Palm and boxer punchers, McCrory. I think a fight between him and Margarito produces fireworks because they both seem suited stylistically to each other. I think Jones can land the bomb on an aggresive Margarito bar cuts.
