1995-03-18 Roy Jones w rsc 1 Antoine Byrd, Civic Centre, Pensacola, Florida, USA - IBF. Referee: Bill Connors. Making his first defence, and fighting a southpaw for the first time in his career, Jones (167½) quickly got down to business when landing bunches of blows before smashing in big rights to the head followed by a left hook to floor Byrd (167½). Back on his feet Byrd was immediately dropped again, and after rising and being hit without reply the referee called the fight off on the 2.06 mark.
