Sakhniashvili has stopped 4 of 5 opponents and appears to have quite a bit of power. However, he is less experienced than Jones, and has a much lower ranking. Jones has never been stopped, and has a distinct height and reach advantage. I have seen odds of 1/10 on Sakhniashvili and 11/2 for Jones. To me this looks a 50/50 fight. Jones could win on points, or the Georgian could knock him out. If that is his plan, he only has 6 rounds in which to do it. I wonder if there is value in backing Jones here. Although Sakhniashvili has stopped his opponents early, none of them have been up to much, and certainly not as good as Jones.
