Professional boxing champion Roy Jones, Jr. has said that he wants to take on Anderson Silva in a match. This ought to be interesting, no?
Roy says that he will accept Anderson’s challenge to a boxing match. The 44-year-old says that he wants to take on Spider after hearing that he told the New York Post that he wanted to take on a “great champion” like Roy. Now, Roy wants to make that happen.
38-year-old Silva is currently under contract with the UFC … but suggested that UFC honcho Dana White should strike a deal to make the fight happen.
As for Roy — once considered the best pound-for-pound fighter on the planet — he tells TMZ, “I would love it … Call me and we’ll make that happen.”
But Roy is concerned about his age — and says if the fight is gonna happen, it’s gotta happen ASAP — in fact, Jones suggested the two get in the ring right after Silva fights Chris Weidman at UFC 162 on July 6.
