Former boxing champion Roy Jones Jr. recently revealed that he is currently in talks to fight former UFC champ Anderson Silva. According to Jones, the boxing match would be a super fight similar to the one we saw between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather. The 49-year-old boxer and Silva have been in talks for a while and are both ready to finalize the match. Additionally, Jones already has a group of investors that want to make the fight happen.

But despite the two fighters who are keen to meet in the ring, UFC president Dana White still needs to sign off on the fight as Silva is still under contract with the fighting organization.

Stay tuned for more information regarding the potential Roy Jones Jr. vs. Anderson Silva fight. Also, learn why the UFC is planning to strip Conor McGregor of his lightweight championship title.
