thing is, its never really been proven, and wont be any time soon, because the money isnt there to draw a top of his game prime champion.
having said that, i think a guy like wlad could have done damn good in mma if he had gotten into 5 years ago, but that would require cross training. (although I think he would stand a chance of catching someone like Cain coming in..and he wouldnt be as stupid as toney, in standing in one place with his leg sticking out).
having said all that, to have more than a punchers chance they would need to be cross training to really make a transition, which, in theory, would mean that they are no longer just boxers, but are now mma fighters with a boxing base.
