By FCF Staff
Roy Jones Jr. and Anderson Silva have talked about boxing each other for years, and now, the stars have resumed a campaign to make it happen.
Recently Jones Jr. appeared on the Ask Gary Vee show, and the boxing legend repeated his desire to fight Silva. Since then, the UFC’s former middleweight champ Silva, posted the comments and clip 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.
Silva was scheduled to fight Kelvin Gastelum in Shanghai last month, but was pulled from the fight, due to a USADA flag.
