UFC president Dana White isn’t a giant fan of combined martial artist vs. boxer bouts. He wasn’t even all that supportive of Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather till the will for that bout turned insurmountable. He’s now, nevertheless, a bit of extra fast to again the concept of UFC heavyweight champion Jon Jones vs. boxing champion Tyson Fury.

“If Tyson Fury actually needs to combat Jon Jones within the UFC, I’ll make it occur. Right here’s my factor proper now to Tyson Fury, ‘Tyson, when you’re severe, let me know.’ Tyson and I’ve a great relationship. I like Tyson Fury.”

Until issues spiral into one other dimension, the way in which they did with McGregor and Mayweather, it’s unlikely that Jones or Fury will take up the supply to combat on the opposite’s turf. Stranger issues have occurred, similar to Mayweather vs. McGregor, however you in all probability shouldn’t guess the home on it.

“Jon, you discuss being in a cage. I’m not a cagefighter, mate. I’m a boxer. The perfect boxer, really,” Fury stated in a latest social media video.

“So if you wish to come right into a boxing ring and combat me, be my visitor. You don’t should name anyone else, you name me, as a result of it’s a boxing combat and I’m the boss on this recreation.”
