1994-01-08 Junior Jones w pts 12 Elvis Alvarez, Friar Tuck Inn, Catskill, New York, USA - WBA. Referee: Wayne Kelly. Scorecards: 120-108, 120-108, 119-109. With a nine-inch reach advantage Jones (118) dominated the southpaw challenger, who despite being pummelled around was a difficult target for the champion to get a clean shot at. On top of that, Alvarez (118) would occasionally counter with left hands over the top, and taking no risks Jones was content to box his way to the unanimous decision.
