Chris Lytle Reportedly in Negotiations for Boxing Match with Roy Jones Jr.
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 05.07.2014

Per Ariel Helwani on Wednesday's (May 7) edition of UFC Tonight this week, retired UFC welterweight fighter Chris Lytle (age 39) is in negotiations to fight Roy Jones Jr. in a boxing match. Lytle is reportedly "very hopeful" for a 10-round, 175-pound match to be scheduled for later this year.

Lytle has previously competed as a professional boxer. He fought in 15 boxing fights from 2002 to 2005, where he went 13-1-1, earning seven knockouts and six wins by decision. Of course that doesn't seem like much compared to Jones, who has competed in 448 rounds and has a pro boxing record of 57-8.

Lytle is said to be pursuing a one-off boxing appearance before ending his career in combat sports permanently. He reportedly has no plans to go back into MMA. UFC Tonight co-host Chael Sonnen said on the prospective match-up during the show, "This is not his world. If [Lytle] uses his jab, if he uses his footwork, if he has a perfect night and Roy Jones shows up sick, tired and injured, Roy still wins in the first round."
