2001-02-24 Roy Jones w rtd 10 Derrick Harmon, Ice Palace, Tampa, Florida, USA - IBF/WBA/WBC. Referee: Frank Santore Jr. Yet another southpaw opponent for Jones (174), the durable challenger failed to win a round and 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 had become sparring session as Jones picked his punches effortlessly, and at the end of the tenth it was all over. Going back to his corner at the end of the session, it was clear that Harmon had problems communicating with his corner and he was retired after they felt he had sustained damage to his right eardrum.
