UFC Middleweight champion Anderson “Spider” Silva has essentially cleaned out the middleweight division and is viewed by many as the greatest pound-for-pound fighter in all of mixed martial arts.
Talk out of Silva’s camp lately hasn’t been about his next MMA fight, though Silva has stated a willingness to move up or down to find a worthy opponent, but has instead been focused on a possible boxing match with former world champion Roy Jones Jr. Jones camp hasn’t dismissed the fight and are rumored to be open to participating in the match up under boxing rules.
No word yet on whether the UFC would allow such an event to take place but that hasn’t stopped the rumors from escalating on both sides.
The rumors appear to have some legitimate merit as evidenced by the fact that Bodog has just released odds for the fight:
Roy Jones Jr. -2800
Anderson Silva +1400
