Philippou thinks Anderson Silva could beat Roy Jones Jr. in a boxing match


Recommended Posts

Costas Philippou knows plenty about boxing. He amassed 87 amateur bouts in his native Cyprus and his last pro bout here in the states was on ESPN.


The UFC middleweight hates it when people compare boxing and MMA. But he has an interesting view on a potential boxing match between Anderson Silva and Roy Jones Jr. He thinks Silva could win.


Philippou’s rationale? Silva is a good boxer and though he wouldn’t stand a chance against Jones in his prime, things could be different now.


“That Roy Jones [of the past]? He would make him look like an idiot,” Philippou told FOX Sports at UFC Fight Night media day Monday. “But today’s Roy Jones? I wouldn’t be surprised if he beats him. When was the last time Roy Jones did anything?”
