Before the buzz of a Floyd Mayweather boxing match vs. Conor McGregor there was mention of a possible Roy Jones Jr. vs. Anderson Silva match, around 6 years in the making. A match that is now a closer reality than Mayweather vs. McGregor.
Next week while Roy Jones Jr. is in Vegas for his Roy Jones Jr. Boxing Promotions event on March 11, he will meet with UFC’s Dana White during his stay.
Just days after Roy Jones defeated bare knuckle brawler Bobby Gunn, Mayweather vs. McGregor rumors started swirling full fledged. Roy Jones jumped on the opportunity to suggest himself and Silva as the co-feature. Can you imagine that? That will definitely be a blockbuster boxing vs mma fight card. Maybe in contention with numbers like Mayweather vs. Pacquiao.
Well if Mayweather match-up between McGregor is not moving in the right direction, Jones vs Silva is and money wise could be an easier fight to ink.
