    Kickboxing, but Ray Mercer lost to Remy Bonjansky.

    Akiyama wasn't a champ, but he beat Francois Botha in MMA. (and Botha also had a rough run in kickboxing).

    But they are a lot of boxer whos also does MMA (vice versa)
    Lucas "big daddy" Browne (boxing 23-0-0 20 ko) will fight for the HW WBA world title vs Ruslan Chagaev
    He has a 6-2 mma record (one of it's loss, vs Cormier)

    So if Browne wins then he and Cormier go on the list. Good find.

    Maybe he just changed that title on purpose to make us look dumb.

    Just kidding

    It is helped by the very loose definition of champ in boxing though it would be like counting a Cage Rage or BAMMA or whatever title in MMA

    Where it's at
    Holly is a mixed martial artist. If she just came in as a boxer, Ronda would have gotten her. Holly trains at one of, if not the, best mma gyms in the world. That comparison doesn't hold up, IMO. Yes her combat background is boxing, but she's a world class kickboxer as well.

    This. "Boxer" Holly Holm was doing pro MMA before "MMA's" Ronda Rousey.

    What boxing title would you say is the most prestigious?

    Toney held the IBF belt in three weight classes

    Mercer held the wbo heavyweight belt and was a Olympic gold medalist

    Holm was the undisputed welterweight boxing champ I believe?

    She's a boxing champ. My thread is about boxing champs vs mma champs.

    Not sure what's so hard to understand about it
