When discussing what’s the hurdle in the way of a potential boxing super fight between Roy Jones Jr and Anderson Silva; The answer has always been, Dana White. TMZ caught up with RJJ and once again asked why this fight hasn’t happened. Once again, the answer remains the same.
“I feel like if he gave it to Conor McGregor then why couldn’t you give it to the greatest of all time, Anderson The Spider Silva?”
That is a great and just question, Mr Jones Jr. It is bizarre how at the height of Conor’s popularity that he was allowed to venture over to boxing. However, when it came to Anderson boxing Roy, it was always met with a firm ‘no’.
Maybe after all the recent losses that Silva has suffered and the tide turned in his career, Dana will now be a little more open to it.
