Norton via brutal ko. Ken did well against boxers, and Roy wouldn't even be a full-size boxer. He stalk him a few rounds, then blow him out.

What?

Surely Norton was too big and too good and Jones too small and too chinny.

My first thought was that Norton would bully and stop Jones, but remember he didn't do too well against Young

Jones was not the defensive specialist that Young was, despite all his speed and flash, and there is no serious comparison between the chins of Jones and Young..at least I hope you realize that. Norton couldn't hurt or manhandle Jimmy Young, but he sure as hell would Roy Jones Jr.

I would be picking Norton by Ko early, but you never know with pesky horrible Jones.

Is there anything that Norton did that Ruiz didn't do better?

Jones is far better defensively and was hit allot less in his career than Young because of his superior punch slipping

PP, maybe Jones hit his opponents more, got hit by them less, had more accomplishments, a greater resume, was a champion where Young wasn't, was stronger, a better puncher, had faster hands and faster feet, was the p4p number one fighter of his decade, but if you're using standards like this to judge a fighter, maybe you shouldn't be judging Jimmy Young. Perhaps you're just not qualified.
