    The beauty of pro boxing aside from the art and style itself, is the process of how the sport is made for those with weak chins to get weeded out as they fight others to climb up the ladder.

    The ones with weak chins gets KOed and usually they either readjust themselves and become great like Manny Pacqiuao, or they retire or they go on to fight in other combat sports (Anderson Silva got TKOed in his first pro boxing match. Rey Sefo got KOed in a boxing match and ended up leaving the sport to do K-1 full time, yet he was known for having a granite chin in K-1).

    The exception to the rule is if a boxer has really incredible reflexes with great defense which makes it hard to hit him until his chin finally gets exposed later on in his career (Roy Jones Jr).

    Last year in 2015, Mike Perry got KOed in a pro boxing match. The dude he fought was throwing feint jabs to his body and quickly followed with a overhand that dropped Perry.

    In MMA you have fighters whose primary style is not boxing so they go on to learn the basics of the sweet science but do not advance as much as other may. Perry has so far fought these type of fighters and has looked as if he is a Golden Glove Prodigy....When in reality he is a fighter with good basic boxing which is complimented by his power.

    BUT his chin has been checked and exposed. Any fighter with good enough boxing skills that watches his pro boxing fight will know this and feel confident that they can take him out.

    the beauty of boxing is that if someone lands a fluke punch on you, you get 10 seconds to recover.

    Consider someone like Joe Calzaghe who finished his career 48-0, yet was knocked down in 4 separate fights (with two of those knockdowns being in the first minute of the fight -- against Hopkins and RJJ.)

    In MMA those likely would have ended as TKO's.

    The beautiful thing about MMA is that it starts on the feet and a boxer has a puncher's change to get a KO win.

    Just ask Tim Sylvia and Benji Radach and James Thompson and....

    Best way to overshadow is that is to slam your opponent with Earth shattering belly to back suplex prior to that.

    What the fuck does this has to do with the thread you inbred idiot.

    What is up with the insecurity? WTF?

    What about Ray Mercer vs Tim Sylvia? How that go?

    It's 2016. Not 2005. It is not blasphemy to be a MMA fan and like boxing. Get with the times bitch.

    It's kind of weird to be a boxing fan in 2016. What is this, 1973?

    Well I am Latino. We still appreciate it heavily. Eespecially here in New York.

    You would not understand this because you are an inbred hick from small town of 800.

    You mean that non sanctioned exhibition that was fixed?

    As a MMA fan shitting on boxing, it is not so smart to ever rely on that fight as an example being that this very same 50 year old Mercer went on to KO a top ten MMA fighter in nine seconds. All you are doing is shitting on MMA even more.

    What is up with this boxing vs MMA crap? I am surprise that you basement dwelling boxing haters still exist.

    2007 called and he wants you boxing haters back.
