Roy Jones Jr. Wants To Fight Anderson Silva

Roy Jones Jr. Wants To Fight Anderson Silva

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.

TMZ has the scoop:

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.

    yea but roy jones jr. if he ever gets on the ground he’s threw. Silva is like a spider of getting people in locks. Jones will need to stay back jump forward throw punch and jump back. Honestly he’s entering silva’s game ufc not boxing. So if it was boxing I would be betting jones jr would win. But i say 30 seconds leg locks tap out.
