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

and 100-90.

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

in 2007.
