Anderson Silva Still Eyeing Roy Jones Jr. Boxing Match


For years, Anderson Silva has hinted at his interest in a boxing match between himself and pound-for-pound great Roy Jones Jr. in a boxing match. In fact, Anderson describes this as his dream fight.

During a press event recently, Silva said that his primary focus is taking his UFC belt back from Chris Weidman, who dethroned the middleweight kingpin at UFC 162 and handed him his first loss since the beginning of 2006. After his rematch with Chris, however, “The Spider” wants to make this boxing match official.

Though the former champion admits that UFC President Dana White might give him some problems regarding the fight, Silva appears to be more ready than ever to make it happen.
