If Silva Wins, He Wants Roy Jones Jr

Sherdog has a very interesting piece up on Anderson Silva.

"Maybe after this fight," says Silva, who if he beats Henderson will pretty much have cleaned out the UFC's middleweight division. "I'll challenge whoever is the champion [in my weight range] in boxing."

Or, if not a champion, perhaps the boxer he respects and admires the most, Roy Jones, Jr.

I knew this would happen soon.  An MMA fighter like Silva in a boxing challenge will get a ton of mainstream press, and will probably make more money in that one fight than he would in 4 years of fighting in UFC.
