Roy Jones Jr. Adds WBF Cruiserweight Title Belt To His Five Division Collection

By Robert Brizel, Head Real Combat Media Boxing Correspondent

 Delaware (February 18th, 2017)– At 48 years of age, Roy Jones Jr. has added the vacant World Boxing Foundation Cruiserweight title to his five division collection of world titles. Jones, now 65-9 with 47 knockouts, Pensacola, Florida, has won major and minor world titles at middleweight, super middleweight, light heavyweight, cruiserweight and heavyweight.

His opponent, Bobby Gunn, remained on his stool before the start of round 8. To his credit, Gunn displayed seven rounds of offensive enthusiasm, but had no defensive skills to go with his enthusiasm. That spelled doom against Jones, who landed right hand leads and combinations at will and tortured the aging Gunn all night. Gunn falls to 21-7 with 18 knockouts, Hackensack, New Jersey. This could be the final bout for both, but knowing Roy, he probably won’t stay away from the ring too long. Sportswriter Robert Brizel got an education from Roy Jones Jr. with his decision to honor previous contractual agreement with Bobby Gunn.
