Jon Jones wouldn’t be the first UFC fighter with aspirations of fighting one of the best Boxers in the world, as we’ve already followed Anderson Silva’s love affair with Roy Jones, Jr. for years now. If you aren’t aware, Anderson Silva has been talking about a potential fight with Boxing legend Roy Jones, Jr. for years now, citing it as the only fight that really matters to him and everything else under the sun. There was even talks of Dana White trying to make the fight happen for him, only for it to never materialize.
Now it looks like Jon Jones is thinking about Boxing one of the Klitschko brothers, Wladimir and Vitali. Both men are champions in their own right and are two of the best Heavyweight Boxers in the world right now, but that seems to be on Jon Jones’s radar right now, which might sound a bit ridiculous to some, but it sounds kind of like something Jon Jones would think is a good idea.
@JonnyBones says he’s been doing so well in boxing training, more than 500 rounds, he’s encouraged to work toward a future Klitschko bout.
