Former UFC light heavyweight champ Quinton “Rampage” Jackson wants to fight anybody in pro boxing but Deontay Wilder.

While boxing superstar Tyson Fury is being linked to UFC KO artist Francis Ngannou for a cross-over fight, Fury’s nemesis Wilder is experiencing the opposite. In fact, 41-year-old ex-UFC star Jackson admitted that he would fight anyone who is presented in front of him in the boxing ring except Wilder.

In a recent interview with TMZ Sports, Jackson revealed that he is very interested in taking a pro boxing match before he retires. According to Jackson, he already called for a boxing match prior to the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor fight.

"I asked Dana White a long time ago, way before Conor McGregor even was around, let me do some boxing!,” Jackson said.

However, White simply dismissed the idea and told Jackson back in the day that there just wasn't anyone for him to box. After several years, Jackson is still eager to prove himself inside the ring. He’s calling for a pro boxing match against anybody but Wilder. When asked about why he wouldn’t face the current WBC heavyweight champion, Jackson simply replied that Wilder was “too tall.”

"I'd fight anybody but Deontay Wilder. He's too tall!," Jackson said.

Rampage’s only reason to agree to a fight with Wilder is money. He went straight forward with the issue and noted that he will fight Wilder if he will be paid “$100 million.”

"Unless they give me $100 mil. Then I'll fight him! I'm not gonna lie, I keep it real!," Jackson emphasized.

"I'll fight him if they give me $100 mil and we do one boxing match and then one MMA match. I don't like fighting them long, tall dudes. I gotta take them down!,” Jackson added.

Jackson is currently gearing up to fight MMA and Strikeforce legend Fedor Emelianenko at Bellator & Risin: Japan on Dec. 29 in Japan.

Last June, another former UFC champ expressed his desire to try pro boxing as well. Junior “Cigano” Dos Santos revealed that he has also been rooting for a boxing match against a world champion for years now. But unlike Jackson, Dos Santos has his eyes locked on Wilder.

“I think and I already have this idea in my mind who it could be. It could be Deontay Wilder because everything I see about Deontay, he’s a great champion, he knocks everybody out and he doesn’t run away from a good match,” Dos Santos said.
