Roy Jones Picks Up Second KO Win In Less Than a Month

By Jake Donovan

Pensacola, FL --Roy Jones hadn't fought at home in more than six years, nor has he fought twice in less than a month since 1991. 

The comeback tour on which he has currently embarked is all about trying new things and revisiting a few old ideas. The latter came into effect after Jones managed to stop hapless Paul Vasquez inside of a round Saturday evening at home in Pensacola, Florida. 

The fight came out of nowhere, pieced together at the last minute as part of a hybrid boxing/MMA show in Jones' hometown. The legendary former four-division champ had just surfaced at a club show in North Carolina earlier in the month, carrying Willie Williams for as long as he could before taking him out in two rounds. 

More of the same threatened to come against Vasquez, a California-based cruiserweight who never figured to offer any form of competition. Jones, now 46, had fun for much of the 1st round before deciding he couldn't prolong the inevitable, landing in bunches to force the stoppage.

Jones (61-8, 44KOs) with the win, now seven straight. While none are reminiscent of his days spent as a champ at middleweight, super middleweight, light heavyweight and heavyweight, the plan now calls for a persistent pursuit of cruiserweight glory. Jones has been at the weight for his past several fights and has announced his intention to chase after defending long-reigning cruiserweight titlist Marco Huck, who's due to fight in the U.S. this upcoming June in Chicago.

Roy Jones say he has a secret weapon. The designer of this secret weapon said most boxers and athletes can only 3-4 rounds with it. But Roy can a full 12 rounds with it. See what the creator says about…

[QUOTE=califo;15517202]This would be a perfect time to announce his retirement.[/QUOTE] No, that would have been about ten years ago.

I think I read that Roy's "opponent" was ko'd in the 1st round in his last three fights. So yeah, just throwing that out there. Bring on Huck to sleep Roy again and just end it once and for all.
