Default Re: How useful is boxing in street fighting ?

Street fights often aren't that clean and once it goes to the ground its anyones fight. There is no way anyone can say a boxer will beat a regular guy because there are so many different factors in it. Good fight though that, and its how fights should be but often aren't.
or take a guy down and his buddy kick ****s your face in

example a bouncer i worked with was a judoka and we were in massive brawl
which a bunch of jamican guys,
so of the jamican guys swings at my buddy,
my buddy easily ducks and takes him down,
and arm bars on the ground..........THEN......
one the jamican's came and steps on my friend's face,
and my resulted in need of a surgery on jaw,,,,

remember street fights are rarely 1-1

and on the ground a boxer has an advantage over an untrained guy due to speed,power etc

just like a wrestler standing up more able to take punches then an untrained guy because the same reasons...

all that being said, i have some crazy mofo's who never trained much of anything who have beaten up trained fighters
