Jones in his absolute prime was unbelievable to watch. His speed, reflexes and explosiveness were amazing. He didn't need to really defend, and didn't. That's caught up with him. Some where along the way he stopped using his fundamentals and now he isn't fast enough to dodge everything and not explosive enough to light up any top level fighters in his weight class. In his prime though I think he'd embarrass Golovkin, like he did to pretty much everyone.
Golovkin is pretty amazing though. I'm not sure anyone can beat him at 160 right now though. It's a damn shame that some big name middle weights are afraid to take fights with him. He's too good to be ignored.

That's a tough one...but I do know that Thurman's power is nothing to laugh at. Golovkin may end up eating more hard shots than he ever had. I can picture it going the distance and being a close fight but I don't know who would win.
I gotta admit, he sure impressed me against Devon Alexander but he should have done that the year before when it really mattered. He could have gotten the Floyd fight he so desperately wanted (I think his handspeed could trouble Floyd, to be honest).
I still gotta see more of him. I'd like see how he does against Thurman, Porter, or Brook.
