Ok i got into a discussion today with my coworkers. They are saying that any mma fighter who stands with a top level boxer would get KO'd. I disagreed because boxers can only punch and 100% of their defense is geared towards punches. An mma fighter can kick knee and elbow. Also the stances in mma are suited more towards punching and kicking. He says the only reason a boxer would PROBABLY lose is because he's scared of a takedown. But in mma, there are guys that never go for the takedown ala machida and anderson. So lets say it was a pure stand up match. Do you guys agree that a really good mma fighter can knockout or outstrike a pure boxer, or are the boxers hands just too good. Ps boxer doesnt or cant train TDD and or else he'd be considered an mma fighter. Same goes for the mma fighter, he cant train boxing, just kickboxing, muay thai, karate, tae kwon do or whatever stand up style he likes.
