    Relative to MMA? He's well above average

    He's probably the best offensive powerhouse the UFC HW division has ever seen. Too bad his durability is among some of the worst

    He'd do poorly in pure boxing. Very poorly.

    Still better than most compared to MMA. But having the best boxing isn't necessary key to securing victories in MMA as well.

    Overeem sucks at boxing.

    Don't get confused with his kickboxing accolades.

    Who cares? He's not a boxer and he's not competing in boxing matches.

    he was beating stipe until he lost and knocked out jds. you can make an argument that he has best hands in HW. his chin just isnt good enough

    Disagree, he has good boxing skills. But it's his complete offense what's making him so dangerous. But like the others stated above, too bad his chin is gone, otherwise he would have been the HW champ for the last 2-3 years.

    I simply refuse to believe that he would lose to Tyson Fury in a boxing match.

    The thing is,you dont need to have conventional boxing skills to succeed at mma. You actually dont need ANY striking whatsoever...so calling someone out who has alot of KOs because their "boxing skills are shitty" is just hipster "I watched a few boxing fights on youtube" bullshit. Stop holding all striking to boxing standards,this isnt boxing.I am actually glad to see such unorthodox techniques mixed in with other styles.

    Reem is not a great boxer, he's a kickboxer.

    Good MMA striker for sure
    Very crafty with his hands, throws some brutal kicks to the body

    Nevertheless, a top ranked boxer would hand his ass to him

    Not great in a traditional boxing sense, but still a very skilled striker with his hands. And very good for MMA, especially at HW where guys tend to be power punchers without a ton of emphasis on technique. But as @KONE said, quite brittle.

    This would imply he ever had a chin.

    Exactly. Anytime you ring the reems bell,its over.He can never recover in time to save himself. Its always been that way.
