“We respect Jones’ boxing ability and think he’s one of the best, but we’re tired of different boxers saying that MMA fighters aren’t technical. Anderson would love to fight Roy Jones in a boxing match under boxing rules to prove that MMA fighters are technical too.” — Anderson’s manager
I honestly thought this whole Anderson Silva wanting to box thing would die down quick, but apparently Roy Jones’ camp has expressed interest, mainly because of the PPV numbers it would potentially draw. I’m not joking when I say that Silva probably has a better chance against one of Roy’s sparring partners. I’d buy this PPV nonetheless, especially if they mixed it up a little and had boxers entering the cage as well. There’s no doubt that this type of event would draw millions. Maybe it would put an end to the MMA vs. boxing debate and show people that athletes stick to their own sports for a reason. Click here for the MMA Weekly story.
