Roy Jones Jr Retires With Win, Calls Out Silva
Almost 30 years after his star making moment in the 1988 Olympics, Roy Jones Jr. fought for the final time in the building he started his professional career, as he defeated Scott Sigmon on Thursday night.
Jones Jr, 49, years old scored a decision victory on Sigmon at the Bay Center in Pensacola Florida.
In a report by Bad Left Hook, Jones was able to pull 98-92 from all three judges, as he dictated the pace of the fight and made sure to push the very game, Sigmon.
“I love each and every fan that came out to support me tonight,” Jones said, adding,
“I knew Scott was tough, I knew Scott was game, and I knew Scott was gonna keep coming. I don’t make excuses. But last week I tore my biceps in my left arm again. But because it was my last fight in Pensacola, I refused to pull out.”
And while Jones claims this is his last boxing match, Jones used the platform of UFC Fight Pass to pass a message to UFC President Dana White, and Anderson Silva.
“Dana, I know you’re listening. I know Anderson’s suspended. But that’s the only other fight Roy Jones will return to the ring for. Other than that, chapter’s closed.”
