    I feel like his ability is so poor that a guy like Cain Velazquez would have a very good chance of beating him tbh

    Prime Fedor had the explosiveness to. His hands were faster than Ruiz and he hit even harder. Today’s heavyweights though... slim odds.

    I've even been looking at NFL players and I think there's several of those who could beat him after a training camp with a decent trainer.

    Guys, while I've always been of the position that an MMA fighter will beat a boxer in a "streetfight" ... let's be realistic here.

    An MMA fighter in a * boxing * ring is at a serious disadvantage and I've seen time and again what happens when they go against boxers in a boxing ring. The boxer wins and it's usually short and sweet.

    The only guy that ever had success that I recall (apart from MMA guys that actually started out as boxers) was Fedor's "little" brother Aleks, who was regarded to have particularly hard and fast hands in MMA. He fought twice in a boxing ring, won both but struggled mightily to overcome completely unknown opposition. Cro Cop, who started as a boxer, sparred with Wlad and couldn't believe how big the gap was.

    Take any freaking MMA fighter you want and put him against Joshua in a boxing ring and AJ will wipe the floor with him.

    That said, its not to say that a guy that starts as an MMA guy couldn't have success in boxing. But, to do so, he'd have to drop the MMA stuff and study only boxing for years.

    In short - he'd have to become a boxer.

    Paulie got his ass whooped in bare knuckle by an MMA bum and floyd Mayweather lost rounds vs McGregor

    MMA is the superior combat form in every way and they aren't bad at boxing at all

    No boxer stands any chance of being competetive in MMA

    It's a totally different level of fighting.

    He might well, but I reckon even Fedor would have to dedicate himself to the craft to have success.

    Dude, you're a casual, give it up with the troll threads.
