Iron Mike is hands down one of the best heavyweights to ever do it, and Jones Jr was the “best pound for pound fighter” for years. People who grew up in the nineties will remember talks of the two fighting in the past especially as they grew older.
However, Mike took a lot of losses as he got older, while Jones would go on to win a belt in 04. Even more, Jones has had fights within the last decade and appears to already be in shape.
