Roy Jones Jr. vs. Enzo Maccarinelli
Roy Jones Jr. vs Enzo Maccarinelli was held in Russia on 12/12/15 and had former multi-weight champion and pound-for-pound all time great Jones Jr. against former WBO Cruiserweight champion of the world Maccarinelli.
Jones Jr. was one of the best ever boxers, winning major championship belts at middleweight, super middleweight, light heavyweight and even heavyweight! At the period he was in the respective weight division, it can be argued he was the best (with the exception of heavyweight where he dethroned John Ruiz for the WBA heavyweight championship belt (available to watch in our video library).
Maccarinelli was selected as Jones Jr’s opponent as he viewed to have a ‘glass jaw’ (later on in his career)….but so did Jones Jr. at that point. Both way past their respective best, Maccarinelli controlled the fight and eventually knocked out Jones Jr. cold.
Jones Jr. Went on to fight another four professional fights but this was the last knockout he suffered and at the time of writing this article, he is slated to face all time great heavyweight Mike Tyson on November 28th 2020 (rescheduled from September 12th)
