    Do you agree with this boxing coach that a boxer only has a 20% chance of beating someone allowed to use MMA rules?

    I don't agree, I'll go so far as giving a boxer a 35% chance. That gives an allowance for the MMA fighter making a mistake and trading on the feet, for whatever reason. It takes into account that a boxer may have light feet and at least a rudimentary knowledge of TDD. Also, not every MMA guy has a killer takedown; lots of MMA fighters like the standup (and may even have been boxers themselves.)

    There was a study I saw long ago done of boxing vs wrestling matches (that I constantly kick myself for not bookmarking) that came up with roughly a 70-30 win ratio in favour of the wrestler.

    There are no other wrestlers that would do as well as Brock did in an MMA fight they would end up like Rousey (Judo expert) who was undone by boxing lateral movement and she couldn`t punch like a boxer neither could Brock, if he got hit by a prime Mike Tyson he would be out cold after the first punch.

    Nah, even someone like Kyle Snyder could take down the larger boxers with ease.

    Depends on the boxer and the MMA fighter. It's not as black and white as this guy makes it out to be.

    Lesnar can physically take a punch very well. Mentally he can't.

    As it's been said it depends entirely on the skillsets of the individual fighters. A one dimensional banger like Ngannou for instance could quite possibly get beaten by a top boxer who made the transition over to MMA. If the MMA guy comes from a wrestling background then the boxer's chances decrease greatly.
