FORMER pound-for-pound king Roy Jones Jnr and the villanious Antonio Margarito both notched decision wins at the weekend to continue careers that should have ended years ago.

In a packed-out Baja California Center in Playas de Rosarito, Mexico, on Saturday (August 13) Margarito – now 38 – earned two scores of 97-92 while one judge gave Ramon Alvarez a score of 95-94.

Despite a slow start, Margarito grew in confidence as the fight progressed and wore Alvarez – older brother of Canelo Alvarez – down as the rounds ticked by.
