Roy Jones Jr. Retires Felix Trinidad

Good for Roy Jones, Jr. Pensacola’s own RJJ has good reason to be happy. Well, aside from the $3 million purse. Roy showed everyone again what the best fighter “pound for pound” looks like. 

It was a performance that reminded when Jones was declared the best “pound-for-pound” fighter in the world. The Pensacola resident, a Washington High graduate, flashed his speed, quick-strike ability and devastating power punches to fell Trinidad, 35, who had once ascended to the mantle of his weight division before retiring three years ago.

Shown here is one of two knockdowns that Roy gave Trinidad.
