Jones vs. Green result

IBO cruiserweight champion Danny Green faced former pound for pound king Roy Jones Jr moments ago at the Acer Arena, Homebush, Sydney, NSW, Australia. Green was a substantial betting underdog going into this fight. Jones has already agreed to face fellow ring legend Bernard Hopkins in their long-awaited showdown this spring.

Danny Green TKO1 Roy Jones Jr...Green shockingly spoiled those plans in just 122 seconds, as he upset the established order by scoring a first round knockout. Green came out aggressively at the sound of the bell, pinning Jones on the ropes and landing a right hand to the temple that put Jones on the canvas. Jones was noticeably hurt, but still managed to rise to this feet. Green pursued Jones immediately, once again trapping the former champion on the ropes, nailing him with combinations of unanswered punches that prompted referee Howard Foster to stop the contest. Hopefully this is the last we have seen of Jones competing inside the squared circle.

With demand for a Jones vs. Hopkins rematch shot down completely due to this stunning result, perhaps we will now see a match between Green and Hopkins this spring provided that Hopkins can win his fight against Enrique Ornelas tonight at the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia, PA.
