Teixeira's boxing may be effective against lesser fighters but it ain't gonna work against Jones. As you said, Nick Diaz has very predictable boxing. See how he got outstruck by Condit and I believe GSP will outstrike Diaz as well. Diaz always chases his opponent towards the cage and starts hurting his opponent. He keeps his stance narrow. Condit utilised a gameplan of circling and forcing Diaz to keep turning and become unable to work his boxing. What I'm saying is, a good gameplan will easily nullify Teixeira's boxing. Furthermore, we can trust Jones's camp to come up with a good strategy.

Well, just a different opinion. Wanna have a credits bet when the fight comes?
I never said Glover will beat Jones, simply that the two of them will have a five round war. I'm confident Jones will emerge victorious, I just think Glover will be his toughest test by far.
