World Class boxing Fighter and former world Champion Roy Jones Jr. defeated Max Alexander by unanimous decision last night in Atlanta, Georgia last night. Roy has been working exclusively with the number one professional boxing trainer in the area, Tom Yankello in hopes on rejuvenating his career.
The Washington Post has a description of the fight:
Roy Jones Jr. won a 10-round unanimous decision against Max Alexander on Saturday night, snapping a three-match losing streak.
Neither fighter made a big impression, and there were no knockdowns in the fight at 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 put together several combinations in the eighth and 10th rounds to beat Alexander (14-6-1).
They also mention Jones and improvements with his cardio:
“I went up there to get checked out, make sure I was OK, make sure my heart was OK and all. And I was training hard like I should have been doing,” Jones said. “Also, the thing I worked on was not spending so much energy, so much useless energy. Don’t be bouncing around for nothing. ”
Jones pulled that off.
Prior to the eighth round, his best work came in the form of lunging — often wild — lefts and rights as he kept his distance from Alexander. Occasionally, Jones ripped off combinations in clench situations as Alexander kept switching from right- to left-handed styles, but until the late rounds he was not impressive.
“He was taking his time, but I was there for the whole night,” Alexander said. “He thought I was going to lay down. I could have done a little bit more. If it was a 12-round fight, I think I would have stopped him.”
