Jones won a 12-round unanimous decision against previously undefeated Anthony Hanshaw on Saturday night capturing the vacant IBC light heavyweight title.
What do you think of roy's match.

I didn't catch that fight, how did he look? I did watch Arturro Gatti lose, and then retire... sad business.

I haven't watched boxing for quite a while, but roy was always my favourite fighter. Good to see him holding a belt.

Roy is one of my all time favorites however, his age will limit where he goes from here. Last time he tested the younger, faster fighters he got punked. My guess is that he's going to get a big payday fight next and will lost the belt. Boxing does need a guy like RJJ right now as a champion.

It was over a year since roy's last match but he did really good against Anthony Hanshaw.

True, but his matches with Ward are all time favorites to any boxing fan...

Best 3 rounds in boxing history
