    Never seen this fight.
    Jones was a machine then.Unbelievable foot and hand speed. No way to get inside his reach. Pizzienza has more mouth than talent. It was an expected outcome.

    i can recall this fight well, Jones showed incredible speed of hand and foot, he was so fast slow-motion camera could not capture the punches. Vinny Pazienza took a fearful beating but his toughness marked him down as a great fighter.
