    Ali would have destroyed Jones at heavy easily, better question would have been could Jones have beaten Ali when he fought at light heavy at the olympics, Ali would easily out-jab Roy, he had a far better and longer jab, the only guy Jones faced with a jab that long was Ruiz, Ali`s 1-2 would be far too sharp and powerful for Roy and he could stay on the outside due to his reach, Roy would have to get inside like Frazier and he just didn`t have the tools or strength to do that, Ali would stop him.

    I honestly think that Ali may struggle somewhat. RJJ was better than most of 60s Ali's opponents TBH. Though I think Ali stops him late.

    I get it that this is a joke thread, but even keeping that in mind, in what fornicating fantasy world would Jones ever even agree to fight Ali?! Roy signing the contract is every bit as hypothetical / mythical as Roy actually fighting him.
    This is like theMayweather vs Robinson/Leonard/Duran/Hearns threads.

    Richard, just a thought but instead of simply copying the thread titles as your opening post, why not give your opinion.?

    Good idea, I think Muhammad Ali wins this one handily, he was hard to hit cleanly in 1967, was extremely fast. I think that Roy Jones Jr gives a good account of himself early. But Ali tags him with a quick right hand, ending it in round 13 for a TKO victory.
