Arkansas boxer dies after pro debut


Fightnews.com is sad to report that pro debuting heavyweight Anthony Jones passed away Sunday morning just hours after after a second round KO loss to Quincy Palmer (2-0, 2 KOs) on Saturday night at Fitness Unlimited in Benton, Arkansas. An autopsy will be performed to see if Jones entered the bout with pre-existing medical problems and to determine the exact cause of death.


According to KATV in Little Rock, Arkansas, Jones is survived by an aunt and a brother. Donations for his funeral can be made to the First Baptist Church in El Dorado, Arkansas. (870-863-7177)
