    In boxing no. His punches is probably his only weakness.

  4. He couldn't beat Maretta in Boxing

    He's a kicker and ground and pounder and uses special atacks. Also known as flashy moves or call it set ups tricks rare techniques.


    Sure he can box. But not on that level.


    I don't think his whole career in the UFC he traded punches with anyone. Well it's not uncommon to not want to throw simultaneously.

    Jon has never had boxing training. Like everyone else @ Jackson / Winklejohn. The "Champion Factory."<{1-69}>

    he could fight like floyd and win by points.

    he has some serious power in his hands. with boxing shoes and correct stance ... holy mother of god ... he could generate a lot of power.

    arent 5 years enough?

    he understands distance and knows how to control ... he could win by points.

    maybe 5 years are not enough, but 10 years should be more than enough

    Jones's biggest strengths as a fighter would be nullified by boxing. He is one the best ever at mixing things up. Boxing would be starting from scratch considering how he fought all his life. Not to mention all that time wrestling.

    He doesn't have either good or bad hands. I can't even remember them. but he's coordinated on the mitts. That's about all we know.

    Most talented fighter you've ever seen? Ever heard of Floyd Mayweather?

    Floyd is good at one thing ... Jones is super good at everything.

    He controls the distance with kicks primarily that’s different than controlling the distance in boxing

    Super good at everything? How long have you been following combat sports?

    His hands are about on par with Karate Combat...he’s good and I personally like him as a fighter but he’s not a great puncher.

    He would probably be better suited for kickboxing, but still not at the highest level because the highest level kickboxers usually have better hands than the lower levels.

    He could be like Jeff French, who had the best elbows in boxing. Not to discredit Fenech, but he had a hell of an elbow for a boxer.
