jon jones

There’s been more talk as of late regarding a MMA champion hoping to cross over into the realm of professional boxing, but nope, it’s not Anderson Silva taking aim at Roy Jones Jr. Instead, this time it’s UFC light heavyweight kingpin Jon “Bones” Jones speaking up, and it seems that he wants a future shot at one of Boxing’s heavyweight champs in the form of Vitali or Wladimir Klitschko.

Jones has admitted that he’d need some polishing of his boxing skills, but has stated that a matchup with one of the brothers would be on his radar a few years down the road.

Jones is without a doubt the biggest thing in the MMA light heavyweight world right now, but to think he could ever competitively step into the squared circle with either Klitschko brother is just about as laughable as James Toney’s infamous romp with Randy Couture in the UFC.

Stick with what you are good at Jones. If you want to box, by all means go for it, but calling out the Klitschkos is just way too far-fetched and ridiculous as this point. But, if you want to box Kimbo Slice, that's a whole different matter....
