Roy Jones Fighting In Moscow To Tune Up For Anderson

Anderson “The Spider” Silva, has been very vocal with his desire to one day have a boxing match with the 43-year-old Jones Jr. Which is why Roy has decided to take a fight in Moscow so that he can be ready for a Silva crossover collision if and when the Brazilian gets past Chris Weidman at UFC 168 this December (via ESPN):

“I want to be ready for Anderson Silva in case he beats [Chris] Weidman. Silva has made it clear that if he wins, he wants me next. I’m here for him. That’s a fight that intrigues a lot of people, but I can’t fight Anderson Silva coming off such a long layoff. So I needed to get a fight first. If it wasn’t for Anderson Silva calling me out, I wouldn’t be fighting this fight.”
