Roy Jones Jr record
The 54-yeard-old former Olympian and former four-division world champion Roy Jones Jr entered this fight with a pro record of 66-9-0 (47 knockouts) but he is not ranked as he hasn’t fought since 2018.
He lost to Enzo Maccarinelli in 2015 (Roy Jones Jr vs Enzo Maccarinelli) but then he has won four bouts defeating Bobby Gunn (Roy Jones Jr vs Bobby Gunn) and Scott Sigmon in his last two (Roy Jones Jr vs Scott Sigmon). After this match Jones also faced Mike Tyson in a exhibition in 2020 (Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr).
Among the best fights of Roy Jones we suggest these two bouts of 2008, both rated with four stars, Joe Calzaghe vs Roy Jones Jr and Roy Jones Jr vs Felix Trinidad, but you should also watch “The Ring magazine” Knockout of the Year 2004 Antonio Tarver vs Roy Jones Jr 2.

He won just one out of his last five bouts, against Myles Price in May 2022, after this match he has lost twice with Steven Ray (Stevie Ray vs Anthony Pettis 2).
