Roy Jones wins unanimous decision
Roy Jones Jr. won a 10-round unanimous decision against Max
Alexander in their cruiserweight fight on Saturday, snapping a
three-bout losing streak.
Neither fighter made a big impression, and there were no
knockdowns in the Atlanta Civic Center. But Jones fought the more
stylish fight while winning all three judges’ cards: 100-90, 99-91
The 42-year-old Jones (55-8-1) rarely pressed over the first
seven rounds, but the man once regarded by many as the world’s best
boxer put together several combinations in the eighth and 10th
rounds to beat Alexander (14-6-1).
Alexander fell to 0-6-1 in his last seven fights, last winning
