Boxers retire every day, but when one of the greatest fighters of all time, such as former Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) Inter-Continental Cruiserweight Champion Roy Jones Jr., calls it a day, it is worth a special mention.

 
 

Jones Jr. (49), claims his fight on Thursday (February 8) at the Civic Center in hometown Pensacola was his last, as he won a wide unanimous decision over Scott Sigmon (30-11-1) to bring his record to 66-9 (47).

In a professional career that began in 1989, Olympic Silver-medalist Jones won world titles at Middleweight (IBF), Super Middleweight (IBF), Light Heavyweight (WBA, WBF, WBC, IBF, IBO, IBC & IBA), and Heavyweight (WBA).

His resume includes victories over excellent fighters such as Bernard Hopkins, James Toney, Mike McCallum, Virgil Hill and Felix Trinidad, to name a few.

The Universal Boxing Organization™ wishes a happy retirement to a future Hall-of-Famer, and one of the most gifted fighters to ever enter a boxing ring.
