    What is consider a Boxer in MMa.

    What I mean is, what if Berto was to go in to MMA. He is a really good boxer and is on the verge of a title shot, but has train for most part of his life as a Martial artist too. His dad was a Martial champ of some sort and his brother fought in EliteXc. So if he was to go into MMA, is he a boxer in MMA or already consider an MMA Artist in Boxing

    Or what about Clintron who is a boxer but has had a wrestling background, if he made the switch what would you consider him.

    They would be considered boxers.
    I think some people wouldn't consider them "boxers" but "MMA fighters" because I think some MMA/ufc fans don't want to give credit were credit is due.

    I heard that, I would like to see that fight. Can Felix's boxing skills keep Clintron from landing that wild hayemaker.

    As a top prospect, Cintron is over.
    Sturm's jab would frustrate and defeat him.

    Cintron had a good run studded wiith knockouts and gets the credit for giving it a damn good shot, but unfortunately his crucial shortcoming is the mental toughness required to be elite. He caves in under pressure.
    Good enough to be Top 5 which is still an accomplishment, but I could never see him as a legitimate Top 3 guy.

    He really ought to get into MMA where conceding is seen as honorable.

    I believe he'd be a Champion there within a year. 3 fights resulting in 3 wins by stoppage and a UFC Title.
