Roy Jones Jr. Made the first step towards a world championship in his fifth weight class on Saturday night, when he won the vacant Universal Boxing Organization™ Inter-Continental Cruiserweight title with a clear unanimous decision over former ”Contender” participant Max Alexander at the Atlanta Civic Center.

 
 

There were no knockdowns in the ten-round bout, but the former Middleweight, Super Middleweight, Light Heavyweight and Heavyweight world champion dominated throughout, and never let Alexander seriously threaten him.
 

Roy Jones Jr. improved his Hall-Of-Fame record to 55-8 (40), while Alexander is now 14-6-2 (2).
 

Jones seemed to be pacing himself in the first half of the fight, and appeared contend to outbox his opponent from a distance, landing long left jabs and straight right hands.
 

From round seven on he did pick up the pace and fired off the kind of combinations that boxing fans all over the world has always love him for, but Alexander was never seriously hurt or in danger of not hearing the final bell.
 

In the end, the judges all scored in favor of Roy Jones Jr. by tallies of 100-90, 100-90 and 99-91.

“I’m feeling wonderful. I want a cruiserweight world title. This is just a start. I’m not through yet”, said Jones after the fight.
 

Max Alexander had in the build-up to the UBO title fight promised to knock Jones out inside six rounds, something that never seemed realistic as the fight went on:
 

“I could have done a little bit more”, said Alexander. “If it was a 12-round fight I think I would have stopped him. He was fast, still fast, still strong, but he never hurt me.”  
 

The Roy Jones Jr. vs. Max Alexander UBO Inter-Continental Cruiserweight title fight was promoted by KO Kings in cooperation with Square Ring Promotions and Big Play Entertainment. It went out live via Internet Pay-Per-View on Ustream.com.
