    It certainly does show the superiority of boxing when an ANCIENT HW contender knocks a prominent MMA fighter out cold like that

    But what really shows the superiority is just watching boxers thrown punches and engage in exciting combat, and then watching guys roll around on the ground in MMA. It's not just silly, it's frightfully DULL to view. I'd rather watch PAINT DRY than that BORING ****.

    Are you saying that every boxing fight has ''exciting combat''? I'm sure to a MMA fan a lot of boxers (think the Klitschko's) are boring just like you think think people ''rolling around'' on the ground is boring.

    You have to recognize in boxing there is exciting and boring fights, and in MMA there is also exciting and boring fights. A lot of mixed martial fights have ''exciting combat'', you seem very ignorant towards mixed martial arts.

    Don't forgot to mention Remy Bonjasky's one kick Ko of Mercer. I guess it proves kickboxers are superior to boxers?

    Paulie's movement and punch avoidance was another level to Lobov but he just didn't throw enough ! you can't win if you don't punch

    It was a fair, accurate scoreline. Paulie could have won easily with a higher workrate

    Except Mercer was 15 years older.

    In a kickboxing match, I'd pick a kickboxer over a boxer, I've tried both, the kicks throws you off if you're not used to it. But lets be real, a shot old, retired Ray Mercer ktfo a UFC champ in his prime with 1 shot in the first 30 seconds of the fight IN AN MMA fight. In the case of Remy, Remy beat a shot old retired boxer in Remy's sport.

    ****img 'Ell...you'd expect him to against a novice boxer like McGregor! He'd never be able to show his face if he didn't stop that punk!

    For those who follow boxing and know PM this performance was just a degraded version of prime PM, he never was a banger he never was a killer he was a brittle handed, feather fisted illusive oriented boxer

    But as far as the match itself and PM a representative of the dangerous nature of a well rounded boxer with decent power and skills in a match...yes Artem is considered a poor striker in the sport of MMA taken out of that element to fight in the sport that boxing evolved from?? yes PM was an embarrassment to boxing and validates MMA fans

    Watching BKFC the rules and the fights it causes me think that John L Sullivan and those who came before would be competitive with todays boxers?!

    He landed a lucky punch and now people persistently post the video every time a boxer loses to an mma fighter :shakehead:.

    Then why were so many boxing fans saying Paulie would win? That's what I'm trying to say, despite "knowing" this fact, most of you still said that this was a complete mismatch and that Paulie was winning this easily, and only the "dumb" mma community believed Artem had a chance.

    I dare any of you MMA fans to tell me that this **** outstrips boxing for excitement, history, prominence, etc.

    Boxing vs. MMA? NO CONTEST. The lyrics in this video say it all:

    :duhAs somebody from a boxing background who appreciates mma and other combat sports I hate how boxing and mma fans feel so insecure they need to minimize the other sport with trash like this.
    Anybody could and likely has combined actual highlights of mma with mediocre boxing highlights just like the video you used uses old mediocre footage of mma against highlight knockouts etc.

    Maybe insecure boxing fans who couldn't handle the thought of him losing to a mediocre mma fighter but even tho Paulie was a favorite as far as I saw most knowledgeable fans new it was far from certain
