That's a pretty weird comparison to make.

I would rate Marciano higher because the man is just a legend, all he did at HW was unprecedented and still not surpassed in the sense that he retired CHAMPION AND UNDEFEATED.

Jones, well... His legend has been a bit tarnished lately, no matter what people might say. It's better to retire at the right time like Marciano.

I could add that Marciano is a top 10 all-time at HW, and Jones is not a top 10 all-time at light-heavy where he had the most success and achieved the most.

Oh, Roy is dead ? I didn't know that, when did it happen ?

It would be a very similar fight to the famous Marciano - Walcott fight........ Marciano would struggle early with the technical ability of Roy but would spark him out at some point.

Marciano would definitely spark Jones Jr.

However you could make a legit claim that they can be mentioned in the same breath when it came to ATG's.
