During the 1996 Atlanta games, Jones earned Bronze after defeating Fola Okesola of Great Britain and Jiang Tao of China, only to have his progress stopped via a debatable split decision in favor of Canada’s David Defiagbon. Prior to the Olympics, Jones was the National Golden Gloves Heavyweight Champion in 1994 and 1995. Currently Jones is an assistant trainer for Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
