Unification: Roy Jones Jr. vs. Lou Del Valle
WBC Light Heavyweight Champion Roy Jones Jr. moves to unify titles with former sparring partner and current WBA Champion Lou Del Valle. During the introductions, the fighters go nose to nose and continue to taunt one another in the early rounds. In a huge surprise, Jones goes down for the first time in his career on a hard left hand from the southpaw Del Valle in the eighth round. Despite the shock, Jones recovers and wins a lopsided decision to annex the WBA title.
