Of course I know. He's my favourite fighter.

I was only anticipating your next move. Like a game of chess. Only with me it's more like a game of checkers. On one of those magnetic travel boards. My point is you ignored my question about She-Mario getting closer. I have enough trouble worrying about senility McGrain! Confirm, next time!

Norton easily. Jones may build up a very early lead,but Norton's strength and heavier weight would soon overhaul it.


A Norton stoppage by the time the sixth round has elapsed.

Yo, Longhorn. It's been a while; I haven't been in the lounge much the past six months.

I'm with you on this Jones match up, though, I think Norton has him in trouble early.

Do you really think Ken's chin is that bad, or that Jones was a harder puncher at heavyweight than say Ali or Holmes, who both hit Norton with some of their best shots?

The reason I made this thread is because of all the love Jones has been getting lately.. So I wanted to see how far this love was really going to extend.
