I'm thinking a boxing level boxer would probably get taken down by a wrestling level wrestler, a BJJ level BJJ practioner, a Judo level Judoka, or a sambo level sambo practioner and subbed.

How about top level wrestlers? Kevin Jackson won gold at the olympics and Frank Shamrock armbarred him in 16 seconds

Most pro boxers would have about the same ring time....
