On May 15, 2004, Roy Jones Jr. faced Antonio “The Magic Man” Tarver in a rematch. Jones was heavily favored to win, but Tarver knocked him down at 1:41 of the second round. Jones had won the first round (Tarver only landed two punches in the first round), but in the second, as Jones tried a combination, he was caught by a big counter left hook from Tarver. Jones got on his feet by the count, but for the first time in his career was ruled unable to continue by referee Jay Nady. This fight was the beginning to the end of a remarkable career for Roy Jones Jr., see the full fight here.
