    Guy had like 50 pounds on him. :lol:

    The size difference was comical.

    a pro boxer that was a golden gloves champ in the amateurs should not be getting beat up like that regardless of size. That being said I enjoyed that because mamas boy has said some racist things on social media towards white people in the past.

    Talk the talk, should walk the walk.

    This guy is a sparring partner now, just good for getting beat up for a few rounds by better fighters.

    Size difference was decent but doubt it was 40lbs, definitely less than 50lbs

    :facepalm:






    Douglin fought Jermell Charlo and George Groves too


    Stop with the excuses. Benavidez is huge and one of the few boxers who can actually fight and Douglin gave him a very tough nights work

    As I keep saying, boxers cannot fight and boxing is by far the weakest and most ineffective combat sport.

    Its for sure a bad look for boxing. Dude was getting walked down and battered, in his own sport. If you fancy yourself a boxer with skills a guy like that should not be able to smash you so easily, even being bigger. He wasn't even throwing jabs. Just straight up ass whooping with gloves on.

    Strickland fights at 185 and Douglin fights at 168, so 17 lb difference.

    Strickland is a good fighter and a good striker, but he got ****ed up by Pereira in his last fight.

    If I see a 200lb pro boxer and a 140lb regular Joe with no formal combat sport training scraping on the street I know who I'm putting my money on and it ain't the boxer.

    The fact that MMA guy is bigger than Douglin means zip doodley in the grand scheme of things. Fact is the MMA guy beat the boxer at his own game again. Boxing is a godawful terrible ****** sport point blank period

    I actually had to look up who these guys are cause I've never heard of them. This Denis guy is literally trained by his mom, he's 34 years old and is basically journeyman status, his best win was against low level prospect/journeyman Vaughn Alexander who's best win is against Luis Arias. He's never done anything of note, this Sean Strickland guy is a legit 10 top ranked middleweight contender who's been a staple in the UFC MW division for years.

    Whatever was said between them they've earned each others respect in the end after settling things as men. Don't see how this mean's anything though. I have no doubt someone like Beterbiev who dabbled a little with grappling in Sambo and is strong as an ox would mow someone like Henry Cejudo in a MMA sparring match.

    :lol: at 17 pound difference. Welterweight UFC fighters like Usman, Woodley, Masvidal etc walk around 200 when they're not training for a fight. This guy must of been at least 215-20 just by looking at him and fights at MW, the size difference just by looking at them is huge.

    At any one time, give or take a time or two depending on said time - albeit that can obviously vary from time to time, again, depending on said time, I'd say roughly only the top 100-200 in the world can and I mean the top spanning all divisions not the top 100-200 in each separate division. But the actual number of ones who can really fight, as in are truly elite, is even lower. So, generally speaking, the answer is no they cannot fight.

    There's a reason why the term ''bum'' is the vernacular of no other sport than the sport of boxing and it's a term which is used by actual professional boxers to describe each other.

    Yes, and most boxers under 200 lbs walk around 20-30 lbs above their natural weight.

    The same things apply to both sports.

    Dude you can literally look at them and clearly see the MMA guy has at least 50 pounds, the boxer even says that he's a little guy, the man doesn't look like he weighs more than 170 pounds soaking wet, he had no answers for the UFC guy because he couldn't overcome the size difference, the MMA guy was just too strong.

    So you think that tiny boxer should have been able to beat someone the size of Pereira? No way could a boxer that size punch like Pereira or deal with his 80 inch reach.
