remember street fights are rarely 1-1
Your friend was in a brawl with more than one opponent and he decides to take someone to the ground and apply an arm bar? Is he a simpleton or something?

and on the ground a boxer has an advantage over an untrained guy due to speed,power etc
This makes no sense. I see many boxers that are around 120lbs. I weigh around 170lbs. You're saying these skinny little guys will overpower me purely because they box?

just like a wrestler standing up more able to take punches then an untrained guy because the same reasons...
Can you repeat this in English? I think you're saying a boxer will be able to take more punches? They probably can when they're wearing a couple of inches of padding on their hands. Bare knuckles to face, I doubt it.

all that being said, i have some crazy mofo's who never trained much of anything who have beaten up trained fighters
It's a lot more about psychology than people seem to think.
