Now that was a good fight.  I think Jones would have gone on to win
had he not lost his composure, yet Griffin deserves a lot of credit.

Giffin has always been able to handle very good Boxers like Jones.
If you remember he was denied a Gold after Battering and ***ying
a 6ft 5 , 178lb Torsten May in the Olympics.  Not bad for a 5ft7
light heavy.  He also Upset Jeremy Williams in the Box offs.  Who was
also considered a pretty crafty boxer/puncher as a Lightheavy Amateur
I am not positive but i think He also beat John Ruiz in the U.s Championships
in 1990 or 1991.  After taking all this into account.  I think he Stood a    
Chance against the P4P best Boxer/Puncher in the world.
Hopefully there will be a rematch.  I still give Jones an Edge, but only because he has more Professional experience, and has more natural talent.          
You have to admit, Griffin is and has always been at a disadvantage fighting at 175lbs and only being 5ft 7!!!!!!  Not bad against jones, He must have real long arms.
