Default Colin Jones V Antonio Maragrito

Jones a brutal puncher

Maragrito rock solid chin

Jones got a good chin too - only ever stopped once on the cut by Don Curry and said after the fight he could have

"taken them punches all night"

and Curry was a destrcutive puncher

Margirito was able to dominate Cotto and make him crumble

but Colin is a bigger natural Welterweight

who wins and how?

Margo by attrition. Late stoppage or UD, I don't see Colin being able to put a dent in Margarito.

I would not be so sure about that

as I know Margsrito is one tough son of a bitch

but he is easy to hit as Cotto showed

and I'm thinking Colin punches harder than Cotto

this would be a war I'm in no doubt

I agree Jones punches harder than Cotto, but Jones tended to demolish people at domestic and Euro level rather than world class. He only really hurt McCrory a couple of times over the course of two fights whereas Curry KO'd him in 2 rounds. I know Curry had speed on his side but I think it still shows that maybe Jones' power at world level was good rather than great?

fair point

I think he was at a big physical disadvantage against McCory who was so long and rangy compared to Jones - and it was hard to get to him

I think he would find Margarito easy to hit - and land more often

but it would develop into a war of attirition

I would make Margarito favorite

but Jones a live underdog

Jones probably wins on points, all Margarito has Is an Insane chin and good workrate.

Jones gets battered and bruised, knocked out, stopped on cuts or rescued on his stool

Got to go with Margarito by late rounds stoppage.

Id pick a chin over power 9 times out of 10.

Plus i would say Cotto is a better fighter than Jones, craftier aswell, so if Margo can get Cotto i think he'd get Jones.

Jones has got a good chin though

better than Cotto

he took Currys bombs like they were nothing

only his nose didnt hold up.

Would Jones be bigger than Margo at WW?

Margo is a monster! Is that a mistake Flint?

Not bigger than Margo

I mean bigger than Cotto

neither man would have trouble finding the other - a war for sure

Colin would not box off the back foot like COTTO i am sure of that

he tried to take Currys head off

he would try to do the same to Margrito

however Margarito is not shy from having a fight either

it would be brutal
