American Jones, who won four belts, including the heavyweight division, could be a legend in boxing.

Jones stated that he would place Muhammad Ali first, but he would most likely put Sugar Ray Robinson second.
"I would put Salvador Sanchez third. I would probably stop there, because I could then take [Sugar Ray] Leonard and [Roberto] Duran or [Julio Cesar] Chavez."
