Jones defeated Ajamu by a unanimous decision (119-106, 3 times), winning the WBO NABO light heavyweight title.[64] Ajamu won the first round on all three official scorecards, however it was the only round he won. Jones took on Prince Badi Ajamu (25-2-1, 14 KOs) on July 29, 2006, at the Qwest Arena in Boise, Idaho.

He also held a press conference in the ring just before his 3rd bout of the year, taking questions from a chair in the middle of the ring and defending his choice of Bryant Brannon as his opponent instead of Frankie Liles, his nemesis from the amateurs. He had played a basketball game in the morning and defended his boxing title in Jacksonville, Florida that evening. In 1996, Jones maintained his winning ways, defeating Merqui Sosa by knockout in two and future world champion Eric Lucas in round 11.[22] When he boxed Lucas, he became the first athlete to participate in two paid sports events on the same day.

Toney was undefeated after 46 bouts and was rated the best in the world at 168lbs. Jones, for the first time in his career, was the underdog. Billed as "The Uncivil War", Toney vs. Jones was heavily hyped and on PPV. On November 18, 1994, Jones was set to face undefeated IBF super middleweight Champion James Toney, who was ranked highly in the "pound for pound" rankings.

After an evenly matched 3 rounds, the 4th round started more in Maccarinelli's favour. Against the ropes, he then absorbed a huge right hook which caused him to stiffen and fall face down on the canvas. Jones beat the count and carried on for 1012 seconds more with his gloves to his face, eating several more uppercuts. Halfway through the round, Maccarinelli dropped Jones with an uppercut.

After going the distance, Hopkins was awarded with a unanimous decision (118-109, 117-110 twice). Hopkins landed 184 of 526 punches (35%), while Jones connected on 82 of 274 (30%). Hopkins collapsed to his knees in his dressing room, drained from a brutal fight and exhausted by the end of his 17-year wait for revenge against Jones. Roy Jones Jr. and Bernard Hopkins (50-5-1, 32 KOs) met in a rematch bout, on April 3, 2010 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, 17 years after their first fight.[91] Jones entered with a record of 5-5 in his previous ten bouts dating back to May 2004 whilst Hopkins came in 4-1 since June 2006.

In 1996, High Frequency Boxing's John DiMaio wrote "The early evidence points toward the real possibility that Jones is the greatest talent this sport has ever seen.

It was announced that Jones would next fight Omar Sheika (27-8, 18 KOs) on March 21, 2009, at the Civic Center, Pensacola, Florida.[81] Jones defeated Sheika via fifth-round technical knockout to claim the vacant WBO NABO light heavyweight title.[82] The fight was the main event of a pay-per-view titled "March Badness", which included both boxing and mixed martial arts matches. It was only his second fight since September 2005. Sheika had previously defeated Glen Johnson, who had knocked out Jones in 2004 and came into this fight having lost six of his last ten bouts.
