    Please, don't compare Ruiz to Ali. You're better than that.

    Are you sure that you're not mistaken Frazier with Douglas? Because Frazier cleaned out the division before Ali fight. He's absolutely one of the best HW fighters ever.

    Jones was much faster and sharper than Foster so I can see him doing better than Bob.

    At some point though Frazier finds his mark, those brutal body shots would stop him in his tracks and open him up for the knockout.

    Tell me I'm wrong though but I could see Jones rocking Frazier early on with a sharp right hand or left hook.

    I don't think I am, Jones was blinding fast and would hit Frazier with a shot he wouldn't see.

    I can envisage his legs stiffening up for a brief second, that would only anger the bull.

    Jones Jr wouldn't last 15 mins , never mind 15 rounds.

    Yes he does at some point but Jones wouldn't be easy to catch early on.

    If you can't see the differences in ability, fighting style, competition faced, and aggression
    between Ruiz and Frazier. Try watching golf. It's a sport much more suited to your pace.
