Roy Jones Jr. scored a fifth round TKO over British contender Courtney Fry on Saturday at the Kipsala Exhibition Centre in Riga, Latvia.
Jones ultimately floored Fry with a left hook in the fifth round.
Although Fry regained his footing, the bout was stopped and Jones was declared the victor.
Named the 1990s Fighter of the Decade, Junior is a six-time world titlist who has collected crowns in four weight classes.
Jones’ peak moment as a pro likely occurred in March 2003 when he outscored John Ruiz to become the first middleweight champion to capture a heavyweight belt in more than 100 years.
Unfortunately, Jones is now prone to suffering brutal losses and is a substandard 9-7 over his past 16 paydays.
Considered one of history’s premier pound-for-pound pugilists, Jones has become a graying liability who should forever vacate the squared circle.
Now triumphant in four consecutive contests, hopefully Roy Jones Jr. will soon offer a “gallant” retirement speech.by
