    Prime Condit got hit by everything under the sun, including kicks, punches, knees, and elbows and was still rarely ever rocked.

    Hagler only had to deal with punches but had a good chin as well (for boxing standards).

    Who do you think was more durable in their primes?

    Hearns had a glass chin, anyone has a puncher's chance against him.

    I do agree that Condit would probably lose though (in straight boxing only)

    I can't believe you thought this was ever in question.

    It's Hagler by 40 thousand leagues

    Well, yeah. Condit wasn't an elite boxer. I doubt Hagler would've faired well in a cage out of his element with shins and knees bouncing off his dome.

    Hagler was only officially dropped once in 67 pro fights and it was very arguably a slip.

    Throw Condit in the ring against a current Tommy Hearns, and he will tear an ACL.

    Throw prime Tommy Hearns in the octagon with prime Condit and he ends up dead too.

    Boxing guys punch harder.

    Definitely Hagler. Some food for thought Hearns ko'd Duran early and Duran had an iron chin.

    Except gloves are actually smaller in MMA...

    Hearns was a power puncher early on and developed that gift over time. Haglers chin > Hearns power apparently but that doesnt mean Condit couldnt take those aswell especially with bigger gloves.

    The punch harder because the hand is protected, remove that and they dont punch nearly as hard.
