    Seems the sizes played a bigger role then most expected

    Like Semmy, Jones is a great fighter with great skills

    But a great factor in his game is size.

    Great fight

    Jones won the scorecards, Gus won 'the fight'

    Personally, I thought Gus won the score cards, Jones won the "fight." By the end of the fight, Gus was almost running. Jones put his hands up like, wtf are u doing man?

    This analogy may have worked if Semmy ever fought someone with a similar size to his own.

    The comparison is fair I guess but he can't help how he's built and being built the way he is isn't always advantageous. His skill and high fight I.Q help him use his frame effectively but all great fighters have certain natural abilities or attributes that others don't possess. I also think fans and critics vastly underrated Gus' chances in this fight, myself included. The guy is a lot better than most gave him credit for.
