Anderson Silva: ‘I’ve always wanted to fight Roy Jones’

June 26, 2013 7:11 am by BJPENN.COM News

“Of course I want to fight him. Maybe after this fight with Weidman, regardless of the outcome, I would love to fight him. He’s already said that he would fight me also, so that’s something that I would really like to happen. I feel that his boxing style is one that I’d like to test myself against. I’ve always been a fan of his, and I just always wanted to test myself against Roy Jones.

There’s a lot of possibilities of different things that could happen. But that’s a fight that I’ve always wanted. That’s a fight that I still want. We’re going to have to see how everything plays out and wait for the next chapter of Anderson Silva and the UFC.

Everything is a possibility, but really it’s going to come down to my willpower and my desire to still be fighting. I have a lot of other things that I want to do. I have other desires, and one of those is fighting Roy Jones. But we’re just going to have to see how things work out in the next few fights and how I feel.”

During yesterday’s UFC 162 media call Anderson Silva discussed life outside the UFC and a possible super fight with boxing legend, Roy Jones Jr.
