    Anybody wants to see this fight at a catchweight? Both rely on boxing and doesn't really go for the ground to finish.

    JDS would destroy Gus.

    Gus has a good chin but so does JDS, pitted against each other I'd say Gus's cracks first vs JDS' superior power.

    JDS via murder. I don't know why people keep wanting to see LHWs (Jones, Gus, etc.) go against JDS, a guy who is damn near impossible to take down and KOs HWs routinely.

    Gus has some good match ups at HW.
    Junior is not one of them.

    Gus has a great chin and good power for a LHW
    JDS had a monster chin and monster power for a HW.

    I also don't think there would be much of a speed gap if any.

    JDS via way better boxing... he would land that upper cut and Gus' head would go flying off... would look worse than the JDS/Werdum death...

    If Gus hit JDS with bombs it wouldn't phase him. If JDS hit Gus with 50-75% power it would do serious damage. It's simply a difference in size/power that makes it an unfair matchup and a pointless one at that

    So many dumbasses on this board these days. If they fought at a catch weight (weighed the same) JDS would only have a slight power advantage and Gus's boxing is cleaner with better defende. It would be an awesome war that any striking fan should be stoked to see. I'd pick JDS but it would not be surprising for Gus to take it.

    So you'd have to dehydrate JDS in order to make it a fair fight...gotcha.

    Gus weighs probably in the mid 220's and JDS weighs 239. What catchweight would it be that JDS couldn't easily cut to and rehydrate back to his normal size?

    So anyone with observations and opinions is a dumbass? It would be a sick matchup if they were the same size and weight class BUT they arent. True fighting ability wouldn't be the primary factor (among other things) making the notion of a fight pointless

    Gus is a tough light heavyweight and would be going up against a tougher heavyweight so it would not be a fair matchup at all.
