Possible Last Hurrah Ends Without Cheers For Pazienza

Compiled From Wire Services
 

Roy Jones Jr. sliced up Vinny Pazienza, who calls himself the Pazmanian Devil, knocked him down three times in the sixth round and then stopped him with 2 seconds left in the round Saturday night at the Convention Center.

The unbeaten Jones retained the IBF super middleweight title and ran his record to 29-0 with his 25th knockout.

It might have been the last hurrah, at least as a major boxing figure, for the 32-year-old Pazienza.

It was all Jones from the opening bell as the 5-foot7 Pazienza, a former two-time champion, simply could not deal with the power and speed of the 5-11 Jones.
