George Khalid Jones went from a fatherless childhood and 11 years of prison to become a successful professional boxer and father of four boys.

Jones stopped boxer Beethaeven Scottland in the tenth round of a 2001 bout refereed by Arthur Mercante Jr., where Scottland fell into a coma and died. Jones overcame darkness and depression when he received a call of compassion and forgiveness from the late Beethaeven Scottland's wife, urging him to resume his career to become a world champion. He went on to win the USBA and WBA-NABA Light Heavyweight titles, and lost an IBF world title eliminator in his last bout to Glen Johnson in 2005 and never fought again.

  • Final record: 23-3-1.
