Question about Roy Jones Jr?

I saw that when Jones won the WBA world heavyweight title in 2003 he weighed in at 193 pounds, that's less than 14 stone. How can you fight for a Heavyweight title at less than 14 stone? The cruiserweight weight limit is 200 pounds. 

Update:

Could someone explain this to me please?

    The cruiser limit was moved from 190 to 200 in around 2005 so at 193, he would have been too heavy for the cruisers then.
