1993-10-23 Junior Jones w pts 12 Jorge Eliecer Julio, Sands Hotel Casino, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - WBA. Referee: Rudy Battle. Scorecards: 116-111, 116-111, 117-109. In a rip-roaring battle between unbeaten fighters, the long-reaching Jones (118) came through to take the title, having picked himself off the deck in round five from a blinding left hook to the jaw to force the action all the way. While Julio (118), who occasionally switched, was always dangerous the faster Jones was always in control, and in the 11th he put the champion down following four or five big punches to the head before repeating the dose shortly before the bell rang to end the contest.
