Roy Jones and Joe Calzaghe


Calzaghe brushes aside Jones challenge

Joe Calzaghe put on one of his finest displays to dismantle Roy Jones Jr at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Calzaghe was floored in the first round by a Jones right hand but thereafter assumed full control of the fight.

The Welshman opened a big cut over Jones' left eye in round seven and the 39-year-old was clinging on in the end.

All three judges scored the bout 118-109 in Calzaghe's favour to extend his unbeaten record to 46 fights.

It was Calzaghe's second big triumph of the year in America, following his victory over Bernard Hopkins.
