Jon Jones Asked If He Could Beat Floyd Mayweather And Conor McGregor In Boxing Fights

UFC legend Jon Jones hilariously admitted that he would destroy Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor inside a boxing ring.

The 32-year-old UFC light heavyweight champ is widely considered as one of the best MMA fighters of all time.

And Jones has previously suggested that he could become a dominant boxer if he ever decided to switch combat sports.

When X17OnlineVideo asked 'Bones' if he fancies his chances against Mayweather, a grinning Jones responded: "Why you starting that s**t?

"Of course I would beat Mayweather in a boxing match. F**k yeah, I'd beat Mayweather."

Jones has spoken highly of boxing legend Mayweather in the past and told TMZ in 2016 that he was someone "I respect dearly."

The UFC legend, who hasn't fought since his victory over Dominick Reyes at UFC 247 in February, went on to call 'Money' a "magnificent promoter and fighter."

Jones claimed in a 2018 interview that it would only take him two years of boxing training to "compete with the best in the world."

The light heavyweight champ told Jackson Wink MMA Academy: "When I started doing MMA, I found myself in the UFC about nine months after my first practice so I'm aware that I have a mind for fighting.

"I have a lot of faith and confidence in myself.

"I believe that if I were to hire the right people to be around me, that's maybe four boxing coaches. That's what the guys at the highest levels [have].

"Hire guys to come in here and we spend two years focusing on boxing and only boxing, I believe I'd be able to compete with the best in the world."
