Roy Jones injured, fight postponed

Square Ring Promotions announced today that it was postponing the Roy Jones, Jr. vs. Danny Santiago Boxing event scheduled for October 7 due to a hand injury suffered by Roy Jones, Jr. John Wirt, CEO of Square Ring Promotions, said “Roy’s manager, McGee Wright, informed me today that Roy injured his left hand while sparring on Saturday and that on Monday, he went to the doctor and X-rays were taken. While the X-rays do not show a fracture, his hand is swollen and continues to bother him to such an extent that we have no choice but to postpone the fight. At this point, we are planning on rescheduling the fight and will make an announcement regarding the new date as soon as possible.”
