    MMA Fighter vs Boxer

    This guy at work is a boxing fan and he made a comment "You'll learn that boxing is the number 1 way to go, that kicking shit doesn't cut it with the big boys".. He gave me examples of how Tyson fought four guys once in a hotel and "who the f- else can take of 4 guys at once" and how Mayweather is so damn fast none of the takedown shit would work because you would catch a punch thats devastating. I asked him if he remembers the Knee's Sherk ate when Franca let him have it as Sherk shot in on him and asked him if he thinks Mayweather could punch harder than a knee. His response was "it's not how hard it's how you GET it".. guys... I came up with logical arguments..

    Im trying to find video proof of boxers vs mma fighters or even kickboxers to bring to the table and his response to me preparing these was , "Yeah but it's some boxer who's barely pro and out of toughman and they say, Here he is! fight him hes a pro". Any help on fights I might be able to show him?

    He also mentioned how Vitali Klitchko is so big and strong you just cant get passed him. Help... lol

    Its simple, even the best fucking boxers in the world can't stop the other guy from clinching them eventually. Once a guy like Barnett gets a hold of someone, unless that someone knows what they are doing, they are fucked. Show him Barnett vs Hunt or Yvel even, they both have very good punching backgrounds.

    Here is a kickboxer vs boxer btw.

    Ignashov vs Arthur Williams

    Exactly, I said if a boxer can't stop OTHER boxers from getting in close and hooking up with them.. how are they going to stop a wrestler or grappler who is a pro at doing just that?

    Yup. Of course on the other hand if the wrestler has no idea how to protect his head or see a punch incoming he could get knocked out right away as well. But the whole point is that MMA fighters do it all, because thats what you have to know to be successfull in an almost no rules fight.
