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.
