Green Stops Roy Jones Jr. in First Round
SYDNEY (AP) -- Australian Danny Green stopped Roy Jones Jr. in the first round of their IBO world cruiserweight title fight Wednesday, preventing the 40-year old American from claiming his ninth title across five weight classes from middleweight to heavyweight.

The 36-year old Green retained his title and improved to 28-3 with his technical knockout over Jones at the Acer Arena, the American's first professional fight on foreign soil in his 20-year career.

It was only Jones' sixth loss since 1989, along with 54 wins, 40 by knockout.
