Boxing News: Roy Jones Jr. Needs Only 75 Seconds to TKO Hany Atiyo in Russia

By C.J. Tuttle Sep 27, 2014

Roy Jones Jr. defeated Hany Atiyo at Basket-Hall in Krasnodar, Russia on Friday to win his fifth-consecutive bout.

The four-division champion needed only 75 seconds of the scheduled 12-round cruiserweight fight to stop the 31-year-old with a left to the body. Atiyo rolled around on the canvas in pain after getting dropped, forcing the referee to halt the fight at 1:15 of the first round.

With the victory, the 45-year-old World Boxing Union [German version] cruiserweight champion pushed his record to (59-8, 42 KOs).

Jones Jr. has now won five straight bouts since dropping three in a row to Danny Green, Bernard Hopkins and Denis Lebedev between 2009 and 2011. Jones Jr. has held world titles at heavyweight, light heavyweight, super middleweight and middleweight.
