With Reyes [Alexander] Gustavson. He has arrived in a department where everyone has about the same range. The second point is that in this new division, his opponents have a lot of knockout power, but he doesn’t. Jones didn’t knock out anyone. That’s why I see him quickly drop to light heavyweight. “
