Default Floyd and Jones' careers..

Both have undeniable superb skills.

Both are multi division belts.

Both also have untested chins.

DM was to Jones is Hatton is to Floyd.

Jones stepping up to HW and beating Ruiz for a HW belt was the pinnacle of his career. Floyd's case was almost the same - stepping up to 154 lbs division and beating DLH for a LMW belt.

Now before Jones has been called out by Tarver for a long time before they finally met back in 2003.

Floyd has been and is being called by Margarito.

I say Floyd should avoid Margarito at all cost...

Margarito does not equal Tarver

Tarver has more skilled
Tarver fought more credible opposition before fighting jones .
Tarver also avenged his loss .

Maragarito has not and is not any of the 3 thing mention above, but he is consistent.

Pretty Boy Floyd no longer has an untested chin. Floyd Mayweather hasn't proven his chin is granite (he has always been too good to have to) but he has clearly shown that he doesn't have a glassjaw. The guy can take a punch.
