After that the rest of his fights were just with Warren. I dont know anything about the Warren King deal falling apart, although he would work with King later on, Bruno McCall comes to mind. Benn said in a book called War, Baby that King looked after him and he hasnt got a bad word to say about him

Jones and King were never firends, especially after King tried to rob him of 100K with the Showtime offer. King didn't like the fact that he always had to go through Levin, he tried to play the Jew card with Jones (and later Toney) , but he got nowhere with it. Jones mainly worked with Arum, later on Murad Muhammad and wouldn't work with King until the Ruiz fight.

I think Benn had at best a punchers chance of beating Jones, especially after the McClellan fight.As for the punchers comment, the facts speak for themselves.

I bet that Jones got more money for fighting Ruiz than he did for any of his fights with Arum.. More than enough money for $100,000 to bear into insignificance anyway.. But yes, that doesn't mean to say they were friends.. One of King's main qualities, is to give over that impression..

Yep, I'd give Benn a punchers chance if he jumped on him the way he did Barkley.. But if he tried to box with Jones, I'm afraid the longer the fight went on, the more he would be schooled..
