Boxing and Mixed Martial Arts are constantly compared and they really should not be. They are both very different sports and have their own place. Some boxers have tried to venture over to MMA and found it very different when it includes a ground game or submissions. James Toney tried it against Randy Couture. Couture realized it would be stupid for him to trade with Toney, so he took him to the ground and made it a short fight by submitting him.
The newest boxer rumored to enter the MMA cage is none other than Roy Jones Jr. This is coming from a tweet that Yahoo sports writer Kevin Lole put out earlier today. (see below)
What do you fans think about Roy Jones entering the cage? Please leave any comments below. Thanks for reading and being a fan of the sweet science.
