    Klitschko round 2-3 KO whilst behind but Klitschko would never be uncomfortable in the fight, he would be biding his time, not leaning in and setting up the right, Jones wins the opening few round with his speed, but it would not stop the inevitable

    Vitali wouldn't have any problems with Jones.

    Vitali by KO. No doubt in my mind.

    Vitali runs over him at a canter.

    VK all day. There is a reason Jones moved back down in weight after Ruiz.

    This. Jones wanted nothing to do with Vitali.

    Jones discontinued his pursuit of heavyweight belts because most of the men were too big. He said so himself more than once. He didn’t even want to fight Corrie Sanders. Jones was p4p light years better than any heavyweight at the time but head to head would have been hazardous to his health.

    I thought Tua was his mandatory post Ruiz. Did I just misremember that?

    It would be worse than Vitali vs Hide. Klitschko by savage KO via the wind of his punches on Roy’s putrid Chin.

    Not remotely competitive.
    Whether Vitali chose to outbox him with his physical advantages or bulldoze him. Jones did not have the firepower or chin to withstand the assault.

    He may have been a good HW mid-century, but may have needed PEDs again.
    Not in more modern times.
