It wouldn't suprise me if a heavyweight boxer punches harder than a heavyweight mixed martial artist - all other things being equal, the boxer trains to punch, and punch only. Boxers are alot more stationary than MMA fighters, too, because they don't have to worry about being kicked and taken down.
I will tell you, though, that a good high kick from a 200+lb kickboxer is harder than any punch thrown by a heavyweight boxer in history.
The kicks did look like they would fucken break your ribs but the way they punched just didnt convince me that they can strike harder than a heavyweight boxer.
Actually i think Kermit Cintron could outpunch these guys.
