Mike Jones was a boxing manager.

He entered boxing in 1976 as co-manager with Dennis Rappaport of Gerry Cooney, Howard Davis Jr. and Ronnie Harris. The press dubbed Jones and Rappaport the "Wacko Twins" for the way they promoted Cooney. They surrounded Cooney, at times, with dwarfs, showgirls and comedians to hype his image and box office appeal.

Jones also managed Billy Costello and Alex Stewart.

He died at age 55 in 1990.
