Anderson Silva and Roy Jones Jr. have relayed in the past that they’d like to box each other, and now the latter’s proposing they fight on the same card, as the rumored Conor McGregor – Floyd Mayweather bout.
Silva and Jones Jr. have talked about fighting as far back as when “The Spider” was the reigning UFC middleweight champ. More recently, however, Jones Jr. tweeted the following comments below, and Silva responded not long after:

It remains to be seen if Mayweather – McGregor gets booked, but recently the latter said he believes his next fight will be against the boxing star.
