Jones Jr. wins final boxing match on UFC FIGHT PASS



The first live boxing match aired on UFC FIGHT PASS Thursday night was a historic one, as future Hall of Famer Roy Jones Jr. fought and won the last bout of his stellar career, winning a 10-round unanimous decision over Scott Sigmon in a cruiserweight bout at the Pensacola Bay Center where he started his pro journey in 1989.

Scores were 98-92 across the board for the 49-year-old Jones, a four-division world champion who walks away from the sport with a record of 66-9 with 47 KOs. Lynchburg, VA’s Sigmon falls to 30-12-1.

In control from the start, Jones fought in spurts due to his post-fight admission that he tore his left bicep, but those spurts were more than enough for the man considered to be the best boxer of his generation. And while Sigmon was game throughout, he didn’t have the speed or firepower to spoil Jones’ night.

“I knew Scott was tough, he was game and he was gonna keep coming,” said Jones, who did leave the door open for a return for one fight only – against former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva.

“Other than that,” Jones smiled, “chapter closed.”
