And down goes Jones on a left hook.

Three, four, five...

Tremendous turnaround

in favor of Hope, here in round ten.

- Come to me, come to me.

- Wow, what a shot!

You stay on him, Billy.

- Are you good? All right.

- I'm good.

Tony Weeks is gonna let him

keep fighting. But not for long!

And another right hand

may have ended the fight.

...six, seven,

eight, nine...

- That's it.

- This is over!

A comeback-knockout win for Billy Hope.

I told you, Jim,

as long as there's a Billy,

there is Hope. He always has a chance.

So light heavyweight champ Billy Hope

has a fourth consecutive title defense

in Madison Square Garden.

Let's go to David Diamante

for the official particulars on the KO.

Ladies and gentlemen, from

the world's most famous arena,

Madison Square Garden,

the official time of the stoppage,

one minute and 18 seconds

of round number ten.

Your winner by knockout,

still undefeated and still

the undisputed WBC, WBA, WBO,

and IBF Light Heavyweight

Champion of the World...

Billy "The Great" Hope!

He reminds us of the great,

late Matthew Saad Muhammad.

Just when you think

there's no hope left,

here comes Billy.

From an orphanage in Hell's Kitchen

to a professional career

fighting in Madison Square Garden

is a distance of only a few blocks...

and a million miles.

But it's a journey Billy Hope

has made in his life.

Billy! Billy! Billy!

Hey, Jon Jon,

take the belts out

for the press conference, yeah?

The new one?

With the other ones

in the back of the car.

- All right, you got it.

- Yo, I'll bring that, Mikey.

- Come on, Big Mike, let's go.

- All right, champ.

- We got a press conference.

- All right, we'll see you there.

Thanks, Eli.

- No.

- I don't know what that is...

- Come here.

- I'm bleeding out of my mouth, baby.
