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.
