Calzaghe overwhelms Jones in NYC, remains unbeaten

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

We will have MUCH more over the next two days, but for now, here's a quick results update:

Joe Calzaghe threw nearly 1,000 punches and opened up a brutal cut on Roy Jones, Jr., retaining his light heavyweight championship with a unanimous decision victory (118-109 on all three cards). Jones dropped Calzaghe in the first round -- the only round he won on any of the official cards.

Zab Judah took a lackluster ten-round decision over Ernest Johnson.

Frankie Figueroa won a contested split decision over Emanuel Augustus, 77-75 on two cards and 75-77 on the third.

Dmitriy Salita outclassed a tough and very game Derrick Campos in the PPV opener, winning a wide unanimous decision.
