    I'd would have to agree with his trainer in some sense. I think GUS showed remarkable hands against Jones, hit jones with punches that Jones usually doesn't get hit with. His reach was a factor, but you need to be able to deliver the punches, use footwork, gauge distance and range, reset your hands for defense, transition from defense to offense, and throw the right punches at the right angles. Gus did all of those things that night and tore Jones up. People keep talking about jones moving up to HW, but Gus could cause the HW division more problems with his hands.

    "I don't call the fighting in my films 'violent', I call it 'action'. An action film borders between fantasy and reality. If I were to be completely realistic in my films, you would call me a violent, bloody man. I would simply destroy my opponent by tearing his guts out. I wouldn't do it so artistically." ~Bruce Lee

    Didn't he just get out struck by Jones?

    Gus has good hands but best boxing? No. Jones has no hands and the fact that his cheap oblique kicks couldn't keep Gus back showed how bad his striking defense is when he can't run from an opponent.

    Edgar, Silva, even Gsp has shown some improvement in his boxing as well

    I think that had more to do with kicks than boxing. I don't agree with his coach, but Goose definitely impressed me.

    I am pretty sure that Gus landed more punches, or at least much more significant punches.
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff
