Why would we assume that? Jones still hasnt mastered using his reach, but is leaps and bounds ahead of brock in that aspect. Brock is very tentative where as Jones can throw with speed and accuracy some of the time. Jones still has 3.5 inches of reach on Brock, that in itself is a big advantage.
If Jones can get some great boxing under his belt and learn to master keeping his distance and using his reach similar to how Lennox Lewis did it, he could be close to untouchable.
