Why can't boxers say goodbye?

Jones Jr - who has won world titles at middleweight, super middleweight, light heavyweight and heavyweight - entertained the crowd with smiles while working his opponent's body and had little to no issues defensively throughout.

Jones Jr then once again called out 42-year-old mixed martial arts star Anderson Silva, telling UFC president Dana White he would postpone his retirement to fight the Brazilian.

He said: "Dana, I know you're listening. I know Anderson's suspended. But that's the only other fight Roy Jones will return to the ring for. Other than that, chapter's closed."
