Roy Jones Jr. won a 10-round unanimous decision against Max Alexander on Saturday night, snapping a three-match losing streak. Neither fighter made a big impression, and there were no knockdowns in the Atlanta Civic Center. But Jones fought the more stylish fight while winning all three judges' cards: 100-90, 99-91 and 100-90. The 42-year-old Jones (55-8-1) rarely pressed over the first seven rounds, but put together several combinations in the eighth and 10th rounds to beat Alexander (14-6-1). Alexander fell to 0-6-1 in his last seven fights, last winning in 2007.
