Foster has the power to end it at any juncture but Jones should shut him out if he stays focused. Too quick and foster won't be much the bigger man like he's used to.

Bivins is hard to predict. I mean a lot of people say Jones is like a bigger version of Burley so make of that what you will. Personally I think bivins might nick a couple of rounds but Jones should have enough speed, timing and power to earn a close but clear points win.

What fighters that RJJ beat measure up to Foster and Bevins.

I keep seeing that Edgewood grade chin of RJJ being his ultimate
downfall in both potential fights.

What fighters did either of those beat that matches up to a prime Jones.

if his chin is bad, what does that say about these two who suffered more prime stoppages than Roy did.

Mke Quarry & Dick Tiger for Foster.....Archie Moore for Bevins.

There is reason why RJJ's chin is recognized by the USGS as
an extension of San Andreas Fault Line.

Ah right well then Hopkins, Toney and McCallum for Jones.

Like I said, if Jones chin is weak then these two have an even worse chin. Both got stopped more in their primes.

I genuinely think people have forgotten how good RJJ actually was in his prime.

This dismissing him as a fragile chin 1 punch away from losing to anyone is revisionism at it's absolute worst.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: even in a head to head sense, Jones is no top 10 Lt. Heavy.

Middle and Super Middle is a different story.

Obviously foster is bigger. What I mean is the combination of him fighting low and Jones having such a speed advantage, the size disparity won't be overly significant imo.

As for the shut him out, I don't mean that literally, but Jones should take the vast majority of rounds.

Not only is Jones in my top ten, he's my number 1. There's not one lhw I'd favour over him.

Not like we'll ever know who's right or not. It's just fun to debate it.
