Mike Jones opened tonight's HBO pay-per-view event with an easy, totally dominating the pace and action against Sebastian Lujan of Argentina, winning on scores of 118-110, 119-109, and 119-109. Bad Left Hook scored it 119-109 for Jones.

Jones (26-0, 19 KO) easily dominated the fight against the fairly lackadaisical Lujan (38-6-2, 24 KO), losing only a very aggressive and very strong fourth round where Lujan drastically out-landed Jones.

But for the vast majority of the fight, it was The Mike Jones Show. Jones didn't show great power or anything flashy, but he had no trouble getting past Lujan in what is hopefully the last test at this level for the tall, lanky Philadelphia prospect. At 28, it's time to step Jones up, and there's little more for him to learn at this level.

With the win, Jones is in line to face Randall Bailey for the vacant IBF welterweight title, which could happen in the first quarter of 2012 if negotiations are easy. That's a decent fight for Jones, as Bailey is limited but has a monster right hand, and Jones does still have a few defensive lapses that could make that matchup troublesome.
