2001-02-24 Roy Jones w rtd 10 Derrick Harmon, Ice Palace, Tampa, Florida, USA - IBF/WBA/WBC. Referee: Frank Santore Jr. With the durable southpaw challenger failing to win a round by the sixth the contest had become extremely one-sided after he had run out of ideas. Although Harmon (175) continued to go forward whenever he could it was little more than a sparring session for Jones (174), who was picking his punches effortlessly, and at the end of the tenth it was all over. Going back to his corner, when it was clear that Harmon had problems communicating, having sustained damage to his right eardrum, he was retired.
