Anderson Silva wants Conor or to box Roy Jones Jr. We say, give it to him!

anderson-silva-conor-box-roy-jones-give

At this stage of Anderson Silva’s career, just give the man whatever he wants. For years he has wanted to fight Roy Jones Jr and even reiterates in this video that boxing RJJ is his dream. However, Anderson was called out by Conor McGregor not so long ago and now Silva is wondering where Conor has gone.

“I accepted the fight for McGregor. I say let’s go do. 180 (lbs), is perfect for me and I think it’s good for McGregor. Let’s go do it. It’s an amazing fight for the fans”.

Then, Silva is asked if the fight has ever been close to happening. As Silva says that it’s “Close to happening”, his manager Ed Soares is in the background shaking his head ‘No’ at the same time.

Silva then deadpans the camera and says, “McGregor… Come on, man. Let’s do this. Don’t run, man. You scared?”

It looks like McGregor opening Pandora’s Box may not have been a wise choice because the middleweight GOAT wants a crack at McGregor and the all of the money that comes with him.

Michael B Jordan called out RJJ. Dude, you aren’t really Adonis Creed.

michael-jordan-called-rjj-dude-adonis-creed

“Bout… four or five weeks.” That is the time that boxer, Roy Jones Jr, says it would take to get ready to fight the actor, Michael B Jordan. Mind you, Jordan is in incredible shape and sometimes that can really boost your ego. Make no mistake though, RJJ could get off the couch after a bender and smash Jordan like he stole something.

At 49 years of age, Jones can still be considered an active fighter, as he fought most recently in February of this year. He didn’t just fight, he won. So, Adonis Creed Michael B Jordan needs to check his ego at the door here.

He’s an actor and I’m sure he got some great training for his movie role. However, this is a real combat sport and he’s nowhere close to someone at RJJ’s level.

Dana White is the only hurdle in the way of Anderson vs RJJ

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.

You know, everyone is getting into this, so why not just play along and have some fun. Boxing and MMA go together like, well, they don’t really go together.  To be honest, if Conor McGregor stepped into a boxing ring with Floyd Mayweather, he’d stand about as much chance as I would in a game … Read moreBoxing and MMA Fun-time.

Even when McGregor vs Mayweather isn’t the subject, it becomes the subject. I wish this would end. Every day before I get onto MikeSwick.com to write I say, “Please, please, please don’t have any new developments in McGregor vs Mayweather. At this point, I hate their names. I hate their faces. I hate everything about these two because it’s something that has the slimmest chance of ever happening. Yet, it’s all anyone talks about and I have to write about the news.

When Anderson Silva was the UFC Middleweight Champion, he wouldn’t stop talking about boxing Roy Jones Jr. It had no chance of happening, but it was all he Silva kept talking about. Unlike Mayweather and Mcgregor who are selling the hell out of a fight that isn’t even scheduled, Silva was pretty much alone with his promoting. As fast as he said it, Dana White would shoot it down.

Our friends at FightHype once again had the cameras rolling and RJJ was asked his thoughts on McGregor vs Mayweather.

“I think if you put Roy Jones Jr. vs Anderson Silva as the co-main event, you got yourself a good doggone fight card.”

Damn you, Roy. This actually seems feasible and I want to see it. *Insert mad face Emoji, here.*
