Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones thinks he could hang on the feet with Floyd Mayweather Jr., the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world.

It helps that Jones is 6'4" tall, walks around at about 220 pounds and has an 84.5" reach.

Mayweather is 5'8" tall, walks around at about 150 pounds and has a 72" reach. Unfortunately, silly little "Bones" doesn't realize that "Money" already knocked out the Big Show at WrestleMania XXIV back in 2008, a 7'1" giant who weighs nearly 500 pounds.

Jones tells the gang at Power 105.1 (via Larry Brown) that nobody would want to see it anyway.

"To be honest with you, if it was all hands, it would probably be a pretty competitive match. But that's not fighting, either. You can't be at the bar and be like, alright, no kicking, no taking me down, don't stretch my shirt out. It's not like that. What I do, I consider it to be the true art of fighting. To do everything. Fighting Floyd Mayweather wouldn't even be right. Nobody would want to see that. James Toney did it about two years ago. He lost in the first round. Don't mess with an MMA fighter. You don't want to do that. It's a bad look."

Are you f*cking kidding me?! If it was all hands Mayweather would actually be able to beat the memory of ever having won a fight out of Jones, even with the 2 fucking foot react advantage Jones would have!

Keep quiet about boxing and stick to what you're gifted at. In boxing there isn't a man alive thats as good as Mayweather now. I've never seen a man with an ego as big as Jones's right now!

wow..Jone is really letting this champ thing get to him..instead of picking a boxer like Ward, S. Martinez..he picks someone who has a huge reach disadvantage..but even with that, Money defense is too damn good..the only person who has a chance at beating Money is Canelo Alvarez..but Money will prolly duck him, even thou im a huge Money fan..and Canelo has been looking hella fucken good as of lately too...

Yup. The best thing JJ has going for him in the standup department is his ability to poke people in the eyes from miles away and it's pretty hard to poke someone in the eyes with boxing gloves.

Jones is too big and would destroy him.
Don't care how good of a boxer Mayweather is, there is no way he'd be able to beat Jones.

Can't admit that a boxer would own a UFC fighter in boxing? Jones' boxing is nothing if he can't kick guys' kneecaps.

I doubt Bones would even touch Mayweather in a 12 round fight.

It would be as embarrassing for Jones as it woud be for Mayweather if he tried to fight Jones in MMA.

It's crazy that you think Jones wouldnt even touch him in a 12 round fight. I think its crazy to say Jones cant beat Mayweather. I think the size difference in this case would be huge.

So would the speed difference, also Mayweather can actually box. Jones is a fighter not a boxer Its a different world.

Its such a weird idea. Mayweather has most likely never boxed anyone remotely like Jones. Jones AFAIK has never had a pure boxing match.

While Jones doesn't have 1-punch power against guys his own size he might against someone who weighs 150. As defensive as Mayweather is, I this that he might be spending 90% of the fight running away. He'd probably win on points, though.

Its just such a bizarre match.

This is how I feel.

Honestly I'm not sure who would win in an all hands match. Mayweather is a much better boxer, sure. But Jones has a massive reach and power advantage. Floyd would have trouble reaching his chin and if he did he'd be punching up, ie. less power.

Jones though would probably have a lot of trouble landing solidly because Mayweather would be much faster with better footwork.

In an MMA match Jones obviously dominates.

I was there live and I have to say that Mayweather did struggle with the big show. I mean he had to use Brass knuckles to finish the job. On this reason alone it seems pretty clear that Mayweather could not beat anyone above 6'3 without brass knuckles.
