If you’re a longtime combat sports fan, then you know way before all the hype about Conor McGregor boxing Floyd Mayweather began, Silva and Jones Jr. talked about fighting. But, due to the fact Silva was the UFC’s reigning middleweight champ, and a massive star, the fight never happened.
Well, recently the decorated boxer, Jones Jr., relayed on the Ask Gary Vee show that he still wants to box Silva. Not long after, the latter followed up with the post below:
ok Roy Jr this is everything I've wanted for years, long before all this happened, it will be a pleasure to step into the ring with you. I have great respect and admiration for everything you've done in boxing and everyone knows that this has always been my great dream. Let's make this event happen. I think we have this right, in fact this is something that both You and I are willing to do. So. Let's make it happen, Mr. Roy.
