    In your opinion, who's the best boxer in the history of the HW division in MMA ? (UFC, Pride...).

    I make this poll in relation with this thread :

    http://www.sherdog.net/forums/f2/jds-has-best-boxing-history-hw-2333721/


    Here's my options :

    - Junior Dos Santos :

    Current UFC HW Champion, has great combinations with power & speed. Also have good footwork but questionnable defense.

    - Andrei Arlovski :

    Used to have crisp boxing, good speed/footwork/power. His problem has always been his defense & reflexes.

    [​IMG]


    - Sergei Kharitonov :

    Former amateur boxer, great power in both hands with good combos and dodges. He use to rely too much on his chin and lost his footwork.

    - Aleksander Emelianenko :

    Used to have great footwork/speed/power.

    [​IMG]


    - Fedor Emelianenko :

    He may not had the best technical boxing, but his speed, reflexes and power were a threat to anyone.

    Others ?

    Honorable mentions to Big Nog, Randy, Hunt & Mirko.

    Even though the story of him qualifying for the Olympics is bull, Kharitonov is still the obvious choice to me as he's the only one to accomplished a thing or two in actual boxing competitions.

    Vitor Belfort was a heavyweight for a little while, I say he's one of the best. :wink:

    Seriously, though, TS pretty much covered them all.

    No problem.

    Other options are welcome. I choosed these fighters because I think they were the logical options, and sherdoggers were talking about them in the previous thread.

    But I don't agree with the Mercer/Toney options.

    With the exception of the joke that was James Toney, JDS imo, not even close, he wrecks people standing

    I say dos Santos, only because he has been the most dominant and successful only using his boxing at a time when the division is at its strongest.

    Am I the only one who is not that impressed with JDS' boxing? He is effective, don't get me wrong but doesn't know how to throw a straight to save his life.

    I consider them more kickboxers than pure boxers.

    I put them in "honorable mention", because after all their boxing is no shit.
