Jones, who retained the World Boxing Council and World Boxing Association titles, said: "It wasn't very satisfying. I'm sorry the fight got stopped early."
Frazier, a law enforcement officer for 17 years, went into the fight as the WBC's No 1 contender despite only an 18-3-1 record with seven knockouts. He simply was no match for Jones. A statistical breakdown showed the one- sided nature of the contest, with the younger man landing 39 of 92 punches and Frazier making only four of 29.
Jones was obliged to fight Frazier because it was a mandatory defence and Frazier was the No 1 contender. Had Jones refused to go through with the fight, he would have been stripped of the WBC title.
"I don't pick the guys," Jones said. "He was the No 1 contender. It's not my job to tell those people what to do."
In another title bout on the same bill, Shane Mosley knocked down Golden Johnson four times in a successful defence of his International Boxing Federation lightweight title.
Mosley dominated Johnson from the outset, and the end came in the dying seconds of the seventh round. A left hook to Johnson's body sealed victory for Mosley, who has now succeeded in defending his title on seven occasions.Reuse content
