Notes

  • Behind from the first minute of round one, Reddick was in serious trouble in round 5. Hurt by a hard left hook, he put everything he had into a short right to Jones' jaw which ended it there and then. The punch broke his hand, and he nearly collapsed from the pain and the beating he'd taken.
