    ARLINGTON, Texas -- Former longtime pound-for-pound king Roy Jones Jr. told ESPN on Friday night that he is considering retiring from boxing as he recovers from a torn biceps suffered in his last fight.In a Pensacola, Florida, homecoming fight Aug. 13, Jones won a shutout 10-round decision against journeyman Rodney Moore in a cruiserweight bout despite tearing his right biceps in the fifth round.If I stop now, Im good with that because I got a win in front of my fans in that last fight, Jones said Friday.Jones (64-9, 46 KOs), who is part of the HBO PPV broadcast team that will call the Canelo Alvarez-Liam Smith card Saturday night at AT&T Stadium, rolled up his sleeve to show off the scar from the surgery he had a few days after the fight.My biceps, it just popped in the fifth round, Jones said. My right hand was dead after that even though I threw it a few times. But its already feeling a lot better. Im not sure if this is the end or not. I may fight again if I feel like it, but I dont know if I will feel like it.Even if he feels like fighting again, Jones, who turned pro in 1989, said he would be out until at least November while recovering from the surgery.Jones, 47, is about a decade past his best, when he was the untouchable king of boxing who won world titles in four weight classes: middleweight, super middleweight, light heavyweight and heavyweight.Jones said once his arm is recovered he will go back into the gym and see how he feels.But if I stop now Im good with it, Jones said. I still might go on, but if I just stop, Im good with it.It aint about the money. I want to fight because I love to fight. I like testing myself, but Im not trying to fool myself. Im not 32 anymore. Im 47 and know I cant fight forever, but Im not trying to prove nothing to anyone. But if I have fought for the last time, I can live with that. It was big for me to go home to Pensacola and get a win in front of all those fans who have supported me for so many years.

A sixth consecutive win - their fifth in a row away from home - enabled the French side to draw level at the top of Super League with pacesetters Warrington.Saints were fresh from a notable win at Warrington but they were no match for the Dragons, whose awesome pack created a superb platform for the returning stand-off Todd Carney to pull the strings, with former Huddersfield winger Broughton providing most of the finishing to take his tally of tries to 11 in nine games. Catalans stand-off Todd Carney joins Jon Wells at the touchscreen to analyse another impressive victory on the road However, just as pleasing for coach Laurent Frayssinous, who gave a debut to 18-year-old Alrix Da Costa in the absence of experienced hookers Paul Aiton and Eloi Pelissier, will be his sides new-found resolve in defence.It took Broughton just seven minutes to make his mark, taking Carneys pass and wrong-footing his young opponent Jake Spedding to force his way over for his first try.

Alex Walmsley is tackled by Richie Myler A clean break by Glenn Stewart created a try for scrum-half Richie Myler and two minutes later, Shane Horo released Richards, who raced down the wing for the visitors fourth try.Trailing 24-12, Saints launched a furious counter-attack, aided by a string of penalties conceded by the French side, but still struggled to unlock their opponents aggressive defence.
