    Wow that is tough Mike
    I have been giving it some thought,so with no conviction whatsoever here is my rating assuming everyone is prime
    1 Honeyghan
    2 Stracey
    3 Green
    4 Jones
    However on his day Jones is capable of beating any of them

    Hi Mate.
    Ok here goes, I have Jones as the num 1, normally I chime with your picks and thought process, but not on this occasion, I feel the strength, power, and all round resilience of Jones will come to the fore, despite his slow start, when he gets in his stride he is a hard fighter to deter, thinking Green will be taylor made for him, Jones will measure him coming in, then unload his short devastating hooks, cant see Green making it to the halfway, Stracey ( if he decides to box ) will last longer, and may stagger Jones at times, but later rather than sooner he will be forced to stand and trade, that will be the undoing of him, your man Honeyghan will pose real problems for the slower, rather one paced Jones, but I think it will go like the Lang fights, Jones behind for most of the fight, then a bomb ! all subjector of course, but interesting nonetheless. nice chatting Noel, stay safe .

    Hi Noel.
    I believe that you knew Jones would be my pick, not least because you are a true and honest man, fact ! but you have got to know me well, as I have you, and I am the richer for it.
    chat soon mate.

    I did not realize that the 50s were closed. Ignore that list.

    You're good! Your 1950s will be included. I still haven't logged all the data, and until I do, the 50s will remain open.
