In a recent interview on MMAWeekly, Ed Soares, the manager for UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva has stated that Anderson Silva would like to put together a fight between himself and legendary boxer Roy Jones Jr. Here’s the clip:

“Anderson really would love to fight Roy Jones, Jr. in a boxing match,” says his manager, Ed Soares, confirming recent speculation. “It’s not just talk, we really would like to put that fight together.”

“We respect Jones’ boxing ability and think he’s one of the best,” said Soares, “but we’re tired of different boxers saying that MMA fighters aren’t technical. Anderson would love to fight Roy Jones in a boxing match under boxing rules to prove that MMA fighters are technical, too.”
