2000-05-13 Roy Jones w rsc 11 Richard Hall, Conseco Fieldhouse, Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - IBF/WBA/WBC. Referee: Wayne Kelly. Never winning a round and taking far more punches than a fighter ought to take, the southpaw challenger fought an uphill battle from the opening bell as Jones (173½) went in to overdrive at times. Down twice in the first from heavy combinations, Hall (174½) bravely stayed with it despite being hurt in virtually every round and unable to live with Jones’ speed. Still there in the 11th, Hall, his face a bloody mess, was finally rescued by the referee at 1.41 of the session after being bombarded and left helpless on the ropes
