Who else could fight the winner of this dream match-up?
Wouldn't it be great to have a clean clear best light Heavyweight
'C'hampion.

I take nothing from Michalczewski. He had a fight plan and stuck to it. He
did what he had to do to win and deserves his belts. But Virgil Hill
appeared to me to be a shot fighter in there. He showed a world of heart
and never quit trying. But his punches has nothing on them, even though he
scored plenty against Michalczewski, who appears not to have much defense.

If Jones gets back down to business and takes care of Griffin quickly
and/or decisively, I see no way Michalczewski beats Jones. Jones would
just go in and out, in and out, side to side on him. This was my first
look at Michalczewski and it is unclear from the Hill fight what kind of
chin he has. If he can be hit as much by Jones as he was by Hill, it would
be a short night for him.
