    I agree with you Jones gives fury some problems but in the end loses quite comfortably

    Fury would have Too many physical advantages even for a fighter as talented as Jones. While the skill level is as wide as the Grand Canyon for Jones, The physical advantages of weight,reach , height, is also almost as wide, but for Fury. Fury probably stops Jones if he fights aggressively.

    Jones is too fast and slick; Fury apears like in slow-motion compared to him and very clumpsy.

    Fury has also learned how to walk down smaller fighters (some considerably bigger than Jones) and impose his size. He's so tall and long and fast on his feet that at some point Jones would submit.

    Jones would never take that fight.....there is a reason he picked Huggybear because Huggybear sucked.......and then Jones ran for the hills never fighting a Heavy again.

    He picked Huggybear because he sucked...and so happened to hold a world title, which Jones won.

    For shame that a 5'10 blown up middleweight (who was small at Lt Heavy) who was getting on in years should avoid the biggest and best Heavyweights out there. And yeah he'd likely avoid a fight with 6'9 Fury too. It's called knowing ones limitations.

    Nonsense.

    The reason he took the fight with Ruiz was for the share enjoyment of watching Stoney (Norman Stone) completely lose his $hit when Ruiz was getting clowned.

    Fury much too big and would have his way with RJJ at heavyweight

    Easy points win, but if he went looking for the knockout, he would get it!
