Rampage boxing Roy Jones Jr on PPV in Dec?


When Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson moved from the UFC to Bellator, fans wondered whether he woud go into a tournament, or have a singles fight. Few thought he would be boxing, but that is apparently in the cards.

An unveiling of Bellator fighter Quinton "Rampage" Jackson's plans with the promotion will likely include a pay-per-view boxing match with former multi-division boxing champ Roy Jones Jr., multiple sources close to the event today told MMAjunkie.com.

The fight is expected to take place at the end of the year, though a date and weight class for the bout could not immediately be confirmed.

"We've been talking to Roy and his people over a potential 'Rampage' vs. Roy fight for over seven months," said a representative from Jackson's longtime team, Wolfslair MMA.

"If it happens, it would be an incredible fight. Boxing and MMA have both been discussed, and Bjorn has been in these discussions every step of the way. I can't say much more than that. We'll see what happens."

Rampage vs Jon Jones Jr would be more competitive.

I wouldnt be surprised if RJJ beat him with one hand in a boxing match. Do we get a rubber MMA match?

RJJ will wreck him, not even going to be close.

Probably.  It is hard to say.  I know that, like Silva, Rampage wants a real boxing match with no elbows, knees and takedowns to distract them. I would think both he and Silva could last long enough to make it both competitive and entertaining.  Of course it also depends on which RJJ shows up.  If it is the one who looks old in the ring, it could be a long night for him.  If it is an in shape and well prepared one, I expect it to ultimately be one sided once the profession boxer trained blows start breaking the defenses.

What's up with all these MMA/Journey men wanting to fight RJJ anyway? Is it because he is way over the hill now and should not even be boxing the likes of non-ranked professionals?

So RJJ's rumoured bouts this year have been Kimbo, Steve Collins & now Rampage? I'll believe it when I see the two of them walking into the ring
