It all depends on the fighter and circumstance. If it's purely stand up (like kick boxing) the boxer has a decent chance depending on his skills. Lots of fighters in K-1(kick boxing org.) Do very well with very limited kicks. Look up Jerome Le Banner, sure he has won knockouts by kicks. However his punches are insane. Then again if you got 2 guys with near equal boxing but the other guy has superb kicks/knees he's gonna win every time. He can gauge the distance and pace.

If its anything goes an MMA fighter even with low level jui jitsu, who is yet athletic will beat a boxer. What good are accurate overhand counters when you're on your back?

boxer vs martial arts? depends on the fighter......but i'd put my money on a good, quality boxer any day....

and for those of you movie fanatics and superhero fantasy types that watch what people do on t.v. and think they can actually do it in real life are either nieve or just plain stupid.....especially since i can guarantee that none have ever seen a REAL fight between two highly conditioned, trained athletes.....

with that being said, mike tyson would destroy both jackie chan and bruce lee on the same day easily.....jackie and bruce weighed what 145lbs each? please, do you really think that a supreme, powerful heavyweight boxing champion at his peak that was able to absorb tremendous punishment from powerful heavyweights could ever be hurt by such tiny men???????are you on crack?

do you think manny pacquiao at 147lbs could hurt any heavyweight boxer? do you think jackie chan or bruce lee hit harder than manny? this weight class type of fighter could never generate the force or power in their bodies to hurt a prime mike tyson....believing in one-inch punches or phantom kicks, c'mon man....just because a karate man can chop a block of concrete, does that mean he can do that to someones head? please, stop believing in fairy tale superhero, karatekid, mr. miyagi, santa claus bullshit and get with the program.......some of these martial arts fans are the same ones that watch a van damme or chuck norris movie, get pumped up, believe it, then go kick their dog or little sister and think they're some martial arts fighter...so what the ***?

that's why weight classes exist in all fighting sports and mma figured out pretty quick when homeboy royce gracie started having problems with bigger, stronger fighters......they had to change the rules and created weight divisions.....

i've always said that most wrestlers, martial artists and football players hide behind their weak *** chins and avoid boxing where the potential for million dollar fights can be made. but they avoid it, cause they just don't have the heart and hide behind a glass jaw. if you're a bad ***, step into the ring and throw down...then talk all the shyt you want.

good points but to put jackie chan and bruce lee in the same category seems retarded to me

i think bruce lee would fuck tyson up actually and i'm a big tyson fan and seen a lot of his fights, especially after his prime bruce would murder him.

in his prime, hard to say, but i don't think tyson would be able to touch bruce and bruce would destroy tysons legs with kicks and probably knock him out with a kick to the face

if a pro boxer trained take down defense for a year in a gym with elite wrestlers and worked heavily on scrambles back to the feet youd see them destroy MMA....

james toney was fat and old by the time he gave it a chance he was looking for one big shot and couldnt get it...

say roy jones in his prime did nothing but drill sprawls and scrambles... his spacing, and speed, would have guys laying out bleeding out the face looking at the ceiling with lights in their eyes...

you wont see it happen until the boxers can get a bigger pay day in MMA...moneys not there...

id like to see badr hari train TDD and scrambles cuz he would light dudes up with small gloves but he doesnt like MMA... k-1 is dead and hed be a star but i guess he wants to try boxing, i can see him having success there aswell...

bottom line 2 different sports but the boxer could mkae the jump with the work...

randy couture would get KO'd opening round by fat james toney in a boxing match... he was offered a million to fight lights out in a ring and turned it down... ill takea million bucks and stand with lights out.. theyd wake me up and id be smiling...

mike tyson in his prime was the perfect specimen...

speed, defense, spacing, combos, and power...

give that guy 6 months in an MMA gym to work on staying upright...

drill sprawls and scrambles...

hed be knocking wrestlers out with hooks and uppercuts...

can you imagine mike tyson beating on a shelled MMA fighter against the fence?!!?!?!!?!?!?

mike tyson dropping you then hitting the mat to follow it up with ground and pound?!!?!?!?!?

he had the power to rip away from the clinch, spin and stay upright... and was a quick learner that responded to good coaching...

alistair overeem won k-1 grand prix but his style is unique... hes so massive he plods forward with his arms up, lets you rip off a combo as hes shelled up... then returns one or two punches with a knee and youre fucked up... hes not your typical kickboxer, he uses raw power and walks into range he doesnt really use spacing like that... he cant do that same plodding shell defense in MMA cuz the gloves leave holes in his guard... he can still clinch you up and rip knees to your face and body but its a whole different game...

That's the thing, after that much training he's no longer a boxing purist.

i remember seeing this on discussion in a tv program called q.i. apparently most fighting experts agree that a boxers upper body is a lot faster than a martial artists upper body and a lot stronger. also apparently in a normal fight legs are not used that much hardly any kicks are used. most experts apparently said the boxer would win

see the thing is though...

someone that trains MMA their whole fight career can never dedicate enough time to their boxing to become an elite boxer that would be competitive on the professional level...

where as a boxers techinical base in boxing is already so elite... they can lose some points in that area focusing on other areas and still be head and shoulders above the average boxing specialist in MMA....

a boxer could enter MMA, drill takedown defense and scrambles and defensive BJJ and be competitive.. theyd just need to train with wrestlers and work on staying up and getting up...

some boxers are flat footed plodding counter punchers... like james toney...

but a guy like manny pac throws punches and comes in and out of range with lightening speed... i could see many pac ruining cats in MMA after 6 months in a wrestling heavy MMA gym...

if youre boxing is good enough you dont even need to know how to check a leg kick because youd control the range...

the money just isnt there yet... i think well see it eventually...

This is really the issue

But in the real world, ain't nothin' fair about a fight
If one has to clench the other guy's testicles between his teeth, that's what they gotta do in a real fight.

But for the sake of this thread, boxers spend a lot of training time on footwork, and it does not take absolutely great footwork to avoid a "shooting" or "lunging" take down. It only takes 5 lbs of pressure to knock anybody out

It's gonna take a bit longer learning to counter the ground game within just a year. Especially with guys like this around

Theres so much involved. However i completley agree Atheletes in Boxing would adapt much better going to MMA than the other way around. Sad thing is the money isnt in it. When pac and mayweather were about to fight they were offered what 60m to win 40m to lose? That's insane. MMA money is like shoe money for those guys lol.

There's a difference between boxing and fighting, same with MMA and fighting. Both have rules.
Iron Mike in his prime, only needs to land A punch.
On the other hand, he misses and gets taken to the floor and he'd likely lose.
Of course, MMA has a lot of rules these days. He's liable to bite, elbow, scratch and those guys get upset over little stuff. Dude was crazy and powerful at the same time. Bad combination.
I guess it depends, on who the fighters are.
