The Pride of Pensacola Florida is back! Former pound-for-pound king Roy Jones Jr. returned to the ring after a 10-month layoff in what was a one-sided easy victory over the NABO Champion Prince Badi Ajamu. Signs of the once unbeatable Jones Jr. were present. Using his electrifying speed combined with pinpoint punching and ring savy, Roy showed flashes of what made him one of the best boxers of all-time.

Jones Jr. gave his own performance a “C” and called out “that boy from England” Joe Calzaghe, Glen Johnson and Bernard Hopkins who has recently announced his retirement. Prince Badi, was in the fight for the first half of the first round. He rushed Jones as the bell rang and seemed to have Jones Jr. in an uncomfortable position. It seemed as if Badi had a game plan and would execute. Quickly, Jones changed the tables. Using blistering body-shots and riddling Badi with combinations, Jones took control. Badi frustrated repeatedly threw low blows which resulted in three lost points by the referee.

Throughout the fight, Badi would complain to his corner that “I cannot breath.” His corner replied for him to fight through and bite down. Buddy McGirt, who has had a terrible record training his fighters laterly, encouraged Badi to “make it a dog fight.” However, Badi was totally overmatched.

Is Roy Back and can he compete with the top contenders? This remains to be seen.
