American superstar Roy Jones did not have it all his own way as he regained his WBC light heavyweight title from Antonio Tarver in Las Vegas.
WBA heavyweight champion Jones took a majority decision 117-111 116-112 114-114 at the end of 12 tough rounds.
It was one of Jones' most difficult fights to date.
More than once he was pinned against the ropes as Tarver landed effective combinations.
However, Jones came out on top to record his 49th win in 50 fights and regain the title he abandoned to fight as a heavyweight.
