Photos: Roy Jones Jr. Schools Young Moscow Boxers

Moscow, Russia - On Tuesday, the Academy of Boxing in the Luzhniki Stadium had a special guest, as master-class former four division world champion Roy Jones Jr. showed the young Russian amateur boxers a few tricks. Before that, the president of Olympic Committee of Russia, Alexander Zhukov, presented a special gold medal to Jones. The reason for presenting this award is related to the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul, where Jones suffered a controversial defeat to local boxer Park Si Hun in the final match.

Benn was exposed by Michael Watson big time. And Eubank couldn't even beat Benn and Steve Collins. Neither one posed a serious threat to Jones.
