Anderson Silva Still Wants to Fight Roy Jones Jr.
I am pretty sure most UFC fans would prefer Silva fight the other Jones, but this is something Silva has talked about for a long time and still thinks it can happen.
“I think everyone’s got something they’re focused on and that’s my own desire, something I’d like to do,” Silva said through a translator. “Maybe one day when I’m done my UFC career I will box Roy Jones.”
Silva said he’d be interested in taking on Jones Jr. twice – once in a bout with MMA rules and another in a boxing ring. He said he knows Jones Jr. and calls him “a great champion.”
Believe it or not, Roy Jones at the age of 44 still isn’t technically retired.Powered by Sidelines
