On this Day in Fistiana…

Roy Jones Jr. vs. John Ruiz

On this day in fistiana, Roy Jones Jr beat John Ruiz for a piece of the Heavyweight Championship of the World, the WBC variety. In a virtuoso display of boxing, Jones did what hadn't been done since the likes of Bob Fitzsimmons when a former middleweight champ moved up in weight to acquire a portion of the heavyweight tile.
