    I can see a Volkov vs Tyson Fury superfight happening. Right now Tyson Fury's striking would be too crisp. Volkov needs to work on grappling to take Tyson down at will.

    MMA? Volkov would rape him.

    Boxing? Fury would murder him.

    Would Fury KO himself wearing MMA gloves?

    More like Fury would need to work on his wrestling to avoid being taken down at will.

    Spoiler Alert: Fury would stand almost no chance.

    Well, Volkov won a fight last night, so by Sherdog rules that makes him the GOAT and the winner of any hypothetical fight for the next week.

    Tyson Fury: Cain Velasquez is a 6 foot 1 pudding... Volkov is Vanilla Slice.

    Anthony Joshua is the more exciting prospect because his size and athleticism will allow him to compensate for his grappling deficiencies with much less training time.

    That said, everyone really underestimates how dangerous boxers could be with little training.

    Cro Cop wrecked shop in PRIDE after getting into MMA pretty suddenly. And he wasn't even a K1 champion level boxer. MMA guys pretty often go into kickboxing and win world titles and beat world champions. NFL guys go in and beat GOATs in their primes. And boxers >>>>>>>>> kickboxers.

    Mark Hunt almost beat Fedor..

    A guy like Anthony Joshua could just go in right now and beat guys in the top 10.

    6 months or even a year of ground training and he's beating top 5, top 3 guys in that upper tier that includes Stipe, Cain, etc.

    Edit: I was mistaking Tyson fury for another guy that weighs 215 lbs. Yeah, he's huge.

    Anthony Tosh and his Tosh fanboys would have no chance because there is "only one Tyson Fury".

    Tyson Fury the guy who just got back from rehab and is the fatest he's ever been, hell I'm not sure he can win a boxing match these days let alone cross to mma he'd be as bad as Tony.

    Volkov's wrestling isnt great compared to elite fighters but he would absolutely rape Fury on the ground.

    We got to see how much damage he did to his CNS over the past few years first.
